January Blog Hop - Birthday Card


Started with a 14 x 14 cm card base then cut an extra piece of card 13.5 x 13.5cm and embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder then cut the corners of this by pushing them into a circle punch so that it was covering a quarter of the circle and punching. I then took a gold marker and dragged it around the edge of this piece until I had a gold border, then attached it to the card. I punched out to Nestabilities Labels one in Gold and the next size down in White. I used Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet stamp set to make the floral design on the white label and gold embossing powder was used for the Bloom words and the flower head. I finished the card with a gold gem to each corner and one on top of the flower and a gold sheer metallic ribbon wrapped and tied into a bow.
