Special Reasons Stamp Set--Birthday

Special Reason Stamp Set
Stylish Stems Framelits-(Matching the ) Stamp Set

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Calypso Coral cs--score in half at 4 1/4"
2) white cs 2 3/4 x 3 1/4  & a scrap piece
3 x 3 1/2 So Saffron cs  & a scrap piece

Stamp the leaf that looks like a vein with Calypso Coral ink on the front of the card base.  This in hard to see in the picture, but it gives it a little extra "pop".

Cut out the flower with the framelits on one of the white pieces.   Sponge with the Colypso Coral ink & the So Saffron ink on the other white piece.  I did some lighter areas & some darker.  Lay the white piece over the top that has the flower cut out.  Make sure that the entire flower cut out has color under it.  If you need to sponge more you can.

Take the piece with the flower cut out & stamp the leaves on it.--Garden Green ink.

Now you can put the tape or glue in the corners & lay the 2 white pieces together.  Sponge around the white edges with the Calypso Coral ink.  Mount the white on the So Saffron piece with dimensionals.

Stamp the Happy Birthday on the scrap piece of white.  Cut out the white & So Saffron pieces for the greeting.  Sponge around the white with the Calypso Coral ink & mount the white onto the So Saffton with dimensionals.

Mount both pieces onto the card front.

I stamped the saying on the inside with the Garden Green ink (wishing you a beautiful day) & stamped the smaller flower in the bottom corner with the Calypso Coral ink.

Hope you liked it!
Happy Stampin
