Lavender Field Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have a birthday card using the New Sunburst hot foil plate and Lavender Bouquet to create this beautiful field of lavender with golden sun.  I can imagine laying under the sun and taking a nap in the lavender field.  



Cut white card stock to 5"x5" square.  Position gold foil and Sunburst hot foil plate in the upper right hand corner of the paper.  Heat and run through your die cutting machine per their instruction.  I use Gemini Junior system and followed their instructions for foil plates and it turned out on the first run.  Ink blend Distress Broken China from the bottom left corner up over to the upper right hand corner.  Do not ink blend in the center of the sun. Ink blend the sun with Distress Squeezed Lemonade.  Ink blend the bottom left corner with Distress Twisted Citron keeping to the edges to create look of green steams.  


Lavender Field:

Die cut all the Lavender Bouquet dies from fun foam.  Add some double sided tape to stamp block and position the fun foam die cuts on the tape.  Ink up with Distress Dusty Concord on the flower and Lucky Clover on the stem.  Randomly stamp first through 3 generation on the ink blended background.  Having taller lavender in the left corer and shorter toward the right corner.  Die cut the Lavender Bouquet from a mid green Lush Green paper pad, 2 times.  Die cut just the flower of the Lavender Bouquet from a dark and medium purple from the Twilight Purple paper pad, 2 times.  Trim off any of the stem that is left and glue on the matching green die cuts.  Adhere on top of the stamped background randomly mixing the light and dark lavender flowers.  



Heat foil the Intricate Mini Butterflies from the same gold foil and medium tone Twilight Purple paper. Only foil first then run through the die cut machine again for die cutting.  Use temporary tape to secure the foil and paper securely to the paper so the die does not move.  Form the wings with your fingers to pop them up.



Hot foil the Birthday Wishes plate with gold and the midtone Twilight Purple paper.  After foiling use the cutting die to die cut out the sentiment.  


Create a 6"x6" card base from white card stock.  Cut the same mid-tone Twilight Purple is the flowers and sentiment to 6"x6".  Cut a gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad to 5 1/2"x5 1/2". Adhere the purchase on the card base, the gold paper, then the card base.  Adhere the butterflies, 2 in the lavender and 1 in the sky.  Adhere the sentiment with foam tape over the sun. 







Absolutely gorgeous
