blue birthday card

Well, I got the new garden silloutes level 2 hostess set, and had to play. Making a large (A5) birthday card for a co-worker that is celebrating her 40th was a perfect excuse.

The patterned paper is something I found in my giant stack of patterned paper, and sadly do not know who made it, but it is beautiful!

I stamped the image in so saffron and a nice pale blue to match the patterned paper. Matted on some so saffron paper.

I then dug though my giant basket of ribbons to find a ribbon to match - I think it is scarry that I managed to have some ribbon that matched! That means I either have too much paper, or too much ribbon! Or both!

Finally, stamped the happy birthday on some whisper white paper and punched out with a 1" circle punch, then punched out some patterend paper with the 1.25" circle punch. Finally took one of the amazine silk flowers from the Stampin'Up! pretties kit and sponged some of the pale blue ink onto it.

In the end, a beautiful birthday card for a co-workers 40th that is large enough for everyone in the office to sign.
