Birthday Flowers


Here's a fun birthday card that I made for a friend last week using the new My Creative Time Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  I die cut the background with Papertrey Ink's Cover Plate:  Stripes Diagonal Die in enchanted evening cardstock.  Then I cut it again out of white cardstock and replaced a few of the stripes with the white. 


My inspiration for this card came from a skirt one of my students was wearing a few weeks ago.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it would make it a cute card, so she let me take a picture of it. :-)


I stamped a sentiment from MCT's Springtime in Paris on one of the white stripes.




I just love all of the fun flowers that can be made with the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies!  I adhered the leaves directly to the card, but popped up the flowers with dimensional adhesive.
