70th Birthday Card Using Fine Art Floral Suite

70th birthday card using fine art floral suite 1

 I needed a 70th Birthday Card today for a lady who loves flowers, especially red ones and the first thing that came to mind was the beautiful Poppy Parade coloured blooms from the Fine Art Floral Suite. I had a sheet of the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate all lined up with one of the beautiful floral designs in Poppy Parade, so I just needed to make sure they were still aligned properly and then cut a 4" x 5 1/4" panel for the card front for my Poppy Parade card base.

I almost had my card right there! To find out what else I did with it, read on:

  • I stamped one of the smaller floral design from the Art Gallery stamp set that is part of this suite on some Basic White cardstock with Poppy Parade and Old Olive for the leaves (which die cutting basically eliminated).
  • I did the second step of the 2 Step Stamping using Versamark and added Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it.
  • Using the Family Party stamp set I stamped the "70th" in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and did the same with the sentiment from Butterfly Wishes.
  • I die cut the whole thing with the largest label from the Tasteful Labels dies. (Yes, I used it again! It's becoming my most used die set very rapidly!!) and die cut the same shape in Poppy Parade cardstock to use behind as a backing. I just cut it in half horizontally and adhered each half separately to the top and bottom of the label.
  • My embellishment is a bow in the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.
It's quick but classy looking and one that anyone could put together easily, thanks to the beautiful DSP and Acetate overlay.
