Floral Birthday Card


This is another card I made for the Papertrey Ink Stamp-a-faire.  The collection was already closed when I made it, but the colors really appealed to me, so I thought I would give it a go.


The challenge called for the PTI Natural Beauties stamp set.  I don't have that one, so I pulled out the only two floral sets that I do have:  Wildflower Garden and Botanical Silhouettes, which was a reward stamp set from a couple of years ago.  I used all of the suggested colors and had fun just stamping.


The sentiment, from Wildflower Garden, is stamped on a strip of vellum that has 1/8" ScorTape hiding behind the score marks.  I used StazOn ink (I think I need to practice this technique a bit).  To see Nichole Heady's original card, click here.
