Scraplifted Birthday Card

Today’s card is one I scraplifted from the current CTMH Seasonal Expressions Catalog (page 57).  The original card used Sugar Rush and the January SOTM (Adore You).

But I decided to use the Hello Lovely paper packet (X7216B) along with the One in a Million (A1201) and Here for You* (B1550) stamp sets.

To create this card, I layered the dotted blossom paper (4 X 5 1/4″), with 2 X 4 1/4″ of the grey, 1 X  41/4″ of the floral, 3 1/4 X 4 3/4″ of the linen and one zip strip cut to 4 1/4″.

I stamped the top half of this sentiment in Desert Sand on the linen patterned paper.  Then I stamped the rest of the image on the inside.  The flowers were created by using a 2nd generation stamp of the flower base in Smoothie topped off with the flower shade (the circles) in Sorbet (I borrowed this stamping technique from Jill Thomason, a Sister Consultant (she made a gorgeous swap card!).  Then I used a piece of cardstock to mask the flowers and stamped the leaves using a 2nd generation image in Fern.  Topped off with gold glitter gems for a little sparkle.

So – if today’s your birthday, remember that you are one in a million!!!!

Enjoy!
