Flowers for Mom’s Birthday | CraftyPaws

Today I’m sharing a floral card that I’ve made for my mother’s 77th birthday. Like me, her favorite color is blue, so I thought that the For the Love of Stamps “Forget-Me-Nots” bouquet in the shape of a heart would be perfect for a classic, CAS birthday card.

I stamped the bouquet on Strathmore Bristol Paper and used a Arteza Real Brush Pens in Acid Yellow (151), Bumblebee Yellow (128), Arctic Blue (117), and Cyanine Blue (159) with a water brush to watercolor the flowers. I also stamped four medium and small individual flowers and used the same colors to watercolor these but used a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen for added shimmer and shine. I fussy cut these extra flowers out and inked the edges with a Momento Tuxedo Black Marker for a nice finished edge because I wanted to add some dimension and detail to the card by popping up these flowers.

For the card front sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment that says “It’s Your Birthday!” using Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder on dark blue card stock and hand cut banner tails on each side. I popped up this sentiment on double sided foam adhesive to give a bit of dimension. Then I added the four fussy cut flowers on foam dots and positioned some of them to overlap the banner here and there. As a finishing touch, I also added three 6mm and 4mm Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets in to add sparkle, dimension, and the look of dew drops. I added a skinny mat for the card front with a pale blue card stock and then adhered everything to a dark blue card base.

I also created a simple card liner by stamping a branch of flowers from the For the Love of Stamps “Forget-Me-Nots” stamp set off the edge of the pale blue liner in the lower left corner. I thought this completed the card nicely, coordinating, but not being matchy-matchy with the card front image. To finish, I stamped an “Enjoy Your Big Day” sentiment in the upper center of the card liner; both sentiments are from the Power Poppy “Party Time” stamp set.
