Beautiful Birthday

This is the card I did for my mom’s birthday.  Not only is it a birthday card – it’s a sneak peek of products in the upcoming Occasions Mini.  A double duty card!  The design is based on the card shown in the mini catalog.

What a great set!

Stamp Set – Apothecary Art (Occasions Mini 125525/125527)
card stock – Poppy Parade, Always Artichoke, watercolor paper
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Poppy Parade, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake
Etc – Framelits Label Collection, Edgelits Die, Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Poppy Parade ribbon, Victorian Lace, Hat Pin, Dazzling Details, Basic Rhinestone, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Vintage Trinkets pins, Always Artichoke seam binding

The Dazzling Details was used on the roses – just a touch.  Because the Hat Pin was so close to the edge cut with the Edgelit die, I put a drop of Crystal Effects on the point.  Didn’t want my mom to get stuck opening her birthday card!  There is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful pleated ribbon in the mini but not in Poppy parade.  So I used glue dots to make my own.  I’m wishing for this ribbon in every color – it’s just beautiful!  (I think I said that!)  So my mom’s birthday card ended up being the perfect time to try lots of the goodies in the Occasions mini!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
