Eastern Blooms Birthday Card - CASEd card

On page 112 of the Stampin' Up! Main Catalogue (IBC) 2010-11 there is a cute little box.  I took that idea and made a birthday card out of it, with a bit of a twist using a new product from the Occasions Mini catalogue .......

This card was quick and easy to make (under 10 mins).  I ran the Baja Breeze piece through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  After inking up the Eastern Blooms flower with Perfect Plum I used the Rock and Roll technique to add some Concord Crush to the outsides of the petals.  Then I popped one of the new Vintage Flower adornments (now available in the Occasions Mini catalogue, page 15) into the center of the flower, then some fussy cutting to cut out the bloom.  I attached a piece of Cardstock weight Vellum to the back of the cut out bloom (using adhesive just in the center of the bloom) and cut out the vellum so it was the same shape as the inked image.  Then I put some dimensionals between the cardstock petal and the vellum petal so the petals stay popped up a bit for some dimension.  The sentiment is stamped in Concord Crush on a piece of Pear Pizzazz and attached to the cardfront, then the flower is attached to that.  Quick an simple and very effective.  You could make this one out of Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, and the flower done in purples as it is, and wow would that be effective.  Hmmmmm,  well off to make another one of these cards using that colour scheme right away!

Stamps:  Eastern Blooms, Sincere Salutations
Ink:  Concord Crush, Perfect Plum
Cardstock:  Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Vellum

In a hurry now, gotta make another card (heehee)!  Bye for now ......  Glenda Mollet
