I stamped the flower from the "Special Reason" stamp set in Watermelon Wonder onto a Whisper White scrap. Then I cut out the flower with the coordinating Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. You can get both these fabulous products in a bundle and save 10% over purchasing them separately. Next, I colored the petals closest to the center of the flower with a Watermelon Wonder Stampin' Write Marker. And then I colored all over the flower with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush so that the flower really sparkles!
I stamped the two solid image leaves from this set in Emerald Envy onto Whisper White scrap and cut them out with the matching Stylish Stems Framelit.
To build the card, I started with a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base, cut lengthwise. I adhered a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White mat, which I embossed with the Festive Embossing Folder, to a 3-7/8" by 5-18" Watermelon Wonder layer. Next, I knotted a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and wrapped it around these layers before adhering them to the card base.
I adhered one of the wonderful Lace Doilies to the card--these doilies are wonderful because they are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other. Squee!! Then I adhered the leaves and, finally, I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the flower.
I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from the same stamp set in Emerald Envy on to a 1/2" strip of Whisper White Card Stock, flagged the end with my Paper Snips, and then adhered this to the card, tucking it under the ribbon. Sweet!
