Birthday Posies

Birthday Wishes shared today by Mindy, who created this wreath which is suitable for birthday's, get well, and thinking of you. 

The card is begun by selecting three colors of card stock that compliment the colors you choose for your flowers.  The flower used is the single flower from the Flower Basket Clear Stamps by JustRight Stamps. On a sheet of eggshell stock, I drew a circle using a circular die as a template.  I then stamped the flower stamp around the circle alternating the direction of the stamp to give it a different but balanced appearance. The flowers were then colored with Copic markers and left to dry.
When the Copics were dry. I highlighted each leaf and flower with a Gelli Roll Stardust Clear Pen by Sakura. I also stamped five extra flowers and colored them the same as the wreath, then fussy cut around each one.

I then assembled my three layers of card stock for the background. The layer where the wreath will be place is embossed with the Vintage Flowers Folder by Crafts Too!  I then adhered the wreath with Joy! Foam Pads Large, and cut a few of the pads in quarters for the smaller single flowers.  They were placed around the wreath to fill in empty spaces.

The sentiments were from the Flower Basket set and the Happy Birthday stamp from Art Impression. The stamps were embossed with embossing powder on Heavyweight Vellum then attached with brads. After all the layers were attached, I adhered the card front to an eggshell card base.

Thank you for visiting with us today. Join us again soon.
