Have A Fabulous Birthday – Gentle Peonies

Happy Fri-YAY!! I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend!!

My best friend’s birthday was yesterday and while I gravitate toward cool tones like pinks, purples and blues, she loves warmer tones like rich oranges and reds. So I pulled out the Gentle Peonies Stencil Set and some warm ink colors to make her birthday card.

I inked up the blooms in the Gentle Peonies onto Bristol smooth cardstock with Peach Blossom, Coralline, Coral Cavern, Valentine Red, Lemon Drop and Found Topaz inks. For the leaves I used Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline. I die-cut the panel with largest die in the Double Stitched Square Nested Die Set.

Next, I die-cut the Square Frames Slim Borders Coverplate from teal cardstock that matched my ink. I adhered the third largest die-cut on the front of the card, then turned the eighth largest square 90 degrees and adhered it.

For the sentiment, I combined “have a” and “fabulous” from the Ribbons Affirmations Stamp Set with “birthday” from the Ribbons General Stamp Set. “Fabulous” was stamped with Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline inks, then cut out with the Ribbons Affirmations Die. The rest of the sentiment was stamped with Hot Tourmaline and cut into thin strips. The sentiment was popped up with foam tape and the Light Aqua Gems were a perfect match!!

I will get to see my friend next weekend!! I sure hope she likes it!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
