Happy Birthday Card for my Friend

I had to wait to post this card that I made a couple weeks ago for a very good friend's birthday.  I gave it to her yesterday and she loved it!  I really enjoy making cards with flowers!

I used Heartfelt Creations Bold Delicate Asters and Arianna Blooms stamps and dies.  The sentiment, from JustRite's Royal Antique Labels One, is stamped onto their Vintage Label Six die and layered with another die from that set.  I love the plaid papers in My Favorite Things 6x6 plaid patterns pack and was glad to use some of it!

I used various inks (guess I should've written them down right away since I don't remember which ones) for the flowers and leaves and topped them with a sprinkling of some sparkly glitter.  Also added a few Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

I used a clear box to put the card into and wrapped some white paper around it.  I used my Cricut Explore to draw this design on vellum and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and Sparkle pens.  I do love me some sparkle and shine!!

Close up shows the lovely shimmer!
All boxed up and tied with a bow.
Thank you so much for taking a look & say hi! if you're stopping by--love hearing from you!


  1. What a great card! Such beautiful flowers, awesome use of vellum, and that box/cover decoration is to die for!

  2. Okay, wow, that's not a card, that's a keepsake gift to be treasured for a lifetime! This is amazing, Carol!! Hugs, Darnell
