Flower Pot Birthday Card Surprise!

 Hello and welcome! Todays card was made for someone very special and important to me, my Mom! It is her 73rd Birthday today, so a extra special card had to be made. For this card, I used Karen Burniston's Twist Panel Pop-Up die set as well as Karen Burniston's Flowers and Bee die set and the Flower Pots from the Flower Pot Pop-Up die set.

I started with an A2 size card using Kraft Cardstock from My Favorite Things. I die cut three rectangles using MFT A2 Stitched Rectangles and Lawn Fawn Dandy Day cardstock in the light pink. 

For the front of the card, I cut out a rectangle frame using MFT Rectangle Frames and with my blending brush, Gina K Sweet Corn and Lawn Fawn No.2 Pencil inks, gave the frame some detail and color.

I left the center of the rectangle white. I die cut several flowers, leaves and bees from the Flowers and Bee die set from 110lb white cardstock. Then I hand colored the flowers with my Copic markers. I added Mini Prills in black and brown to the centers of the bigger flowers and for the small white and yellow flowers, a small dot of orange Liquid Pearls. 

Using a darker shade of pink cardstock, I die cut the Happy Birthday to You twice using Karen Burniston's Word Set 2: Birthday and glued both sentiments together to give the wording some dimension. I also added glossy accents to the words. 

For the inside of the card, I die cut the pop-up in the middle of the card using 110lb white cardstock. I added a cloud and grass background using MFT Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Grassy Edges Stencil. I used Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn for this piece.

I die cut the pots from scrap yellow cardstock and ran the pot bottoms through my Cricut Cuttlebug and embossed a fancy design. Then using the same ink colors as the frame on the front of the card, I added some dimension to the pots. 

I had to trim the pots down to fit the center pop-up. I glued on the flowers using Neutral PH Lineco Adhesive (honestly the best glue I've ever used!) and my Karen Burniston's fine tip bottle. I die cut the "make a wish" sentiment from the same word set birthday dies and added glitter stickles to make the sentiment pop! 

I die cut two pieces for the top and bottom of my card using 110lb white cardstock and MFT Stitched Scalloped Edges. I stamped the "You are loved" sentiment from MFT Essential Sentiments. 

This card went over very well! My Mom loves flowers and has some very beautiful gardens around their house, so this card was perfect for her! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
