Happy Birthday Diane!

By | June 26, 2014

Let me start today by wishing a Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister-in-law Diane, hope you have a great day!  Look forward to seeing you a week from today with my brother Michael, Jake & Maya when you come to visit for a long July 4th weekend!

Today I will be sharing with you the card I sent to Diane for her birthday.  While checking out ‘You Tube’ for some new creative ideas, I found this “screen card” made by fellow demonstrator Deb Valder and just knew it was the right card for Diane.  The card base is a piece of Whisper White 6″ x 12″, scored at 3″, 6″ and 9″ to create the screen effect.  Used the Decorative Label Punch to punch out the bottom to create the “legs” of the screens, for the top I used a “vintage” border punch for a feminine look.  To decorate the screens used a mat of Wild Wasabi, layered with Whisper White which I used one of the new Decorative Mask – Hearts to add to the background.  Flowers, leaves and greeting are from the “Flower Patch” stamp set  which has matching framelits – Flower Fair (these come together as a bundle for 15% off).  Colors used for the flowers include Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride, Tangerine Tango and Marina Mist.  Flowers on the outer screens have dimensionals for depth.

Here is the card with the matching envelope I made using a piece of Park Lane Designer Series paper;  Envelope punch board;  Age Awareness – Petite Petal and Something to Say stamp sets, flowers punched with matching punches and jewels for accents.
