I'm really having fun with the Walk in my Garden Cricut cartridge! For this B-day card for my Aunt, I decided to use a variety of flowers to make a big birthday bouquet.
This is a full-sized greeting card with a double-mat. For the lemon card stock, I used my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and then my corner rounder for both mats. Just like my mom's b-day card from my previous post, I made the same "terracotta" flowerpot (same technique).
All of the flower cuts (Iris, Daffodil, tulips and sunflowers, I embossed. For the butterfly, I used a couple of techniques I learned from Gina at http://stamptv.com - This butterfly started as a rubber stamp image that I embossed with copper powder on a dark purple cardstock, then I bleached areas of the wings and then later added a little Lemon Ice stickles to bling it up. For all the flowers, I created the 3-D effect by using varying sizes of pop-dots to make them look like a bouquet. For the tulips, I only used a pop dot on one of them - when you cut these it cuts two stems and leaves attached, by just adhering 1 of the blooms, it allow the 2nd bloom to just float - pretty cool.
The Sweet Birthday Wishes sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Sweet Sentiments which you can get at Scrappy Mom's. Finally, I added a coordinating ribbon bow.
Hope my aunt enjoys it.
