Happy Birthday & CT #89

I got an order for a Birthday card for a ladies cousin, so this is what I came up with!

One super cool part about this card is the green card is plantable and will produce butterfly attracting flowers! The plantable cards came with a "how to" paper for each card in the pack.

I used no adhesive, only staples so the recipient can just take off the staples and get to gardening! The inside of the card is a seperate piece also, after the front is taken off, they can easily tape the front to the inside and they still have a card.

This is also for Color Throwdown #89

I used the Poppyseed line from K&Company, I love the colors in this collection. They're darker than pastels, but at the same time, they're still very muted.

I used the big photo turn that says "cousin" on it as the middle flowers leaf. I got the photo turn at Joann's, it came with different family members on each one.

I got the stitching idea for the flowers stems for Kristina Werner's "Gathered Paper Flower" Card

The fibers were given to me by my friend, Amanda, thanks again! I trimmed the fibers to make them shorter because I didn't want them going over the two papers on the left.

My BIG leaf!

I got this $1 Birthday Stamp Set at Michael's.. It's by Studio G and has 2 or 3 other Birthday stamps that came with it. The dots were part of the stamp too. I cut them apart so I could use them in a different way than they had them.

Ohhh what a fun shot. Look at all those layers on the flowers! I used a crocodile texture paper, to add even more texture to the card.



Very cute, Tarynne! She will love this!
