Floral Birthday

Today's card came about by accident.  I was trying a different technique that didn't work and ended up with this white card base with the hexagons embossed with the Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder and the frame cut out with Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack 4 Die.  I didn't want to throw out the base, since it was kind of cool, so I cut a piece of vellum 1/4" taller than the card base, folded over that quarter inch, put adhesive on it, and adhered it inside.  I did the same thing with a piece of striped paper.

When the card is closed flat, the stripes really show through.  The sentiment that I heat embossed on the vellum is from Papertrey Ink's Stylish Sentiments:  Birthday stamp set.

These fun flowers were made with the PTI Notched Flower Dies and stamped with images from one of PTI's anniversary sets, Funky Florals.  I heat embossed the center image with white embossing powder.  The leaves were made with PTI's Ruby Rose stamps and dies.
