Bright and Sunny Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have a bright and sunny birthday card featuring the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die set.


Flowers and Leaves:

Die cut the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves die from heavy white card stock.  Ink blend the flowers using VersaFine Clair Cheerful from the center toward the tips of the petals.  Ink blend using VersaFine Clair Tulip Red from the center toward the middle of the petals.  Go back over with the Cheerful to create an orange color.  Darken the flower center with Tulip Red and add shading at the edge with VersaFine Clair Fallen Leaves.  Ink blend the leaves first with VersaFine Clair Verdant all over and then darken with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair ink.  Form the flowers by taking a large stylist from the back side to "cup" the center.  Turn flower over and run the large stylist along the petals to lightly flatten them.  Adhere the 3 flower die cuts with the largest on the bottom and smallest on top, offsetting the petals. Take an ink pen and curl the leaves over the barrel of the pen.  



Ink blend a 1.5" x 3" heavy white card stock with VersaFine Clair Cheerful. Ink blend with Tulip Red along the outside leaving the center yellow.  Then ink blend over the Tulip Red with Cheerful.  Then foil the sentiment using the Posh Happy Birthday hot foil plate and gold foil.  Then die cut out the sentiment using the matching die.  



Cut a med tone orange from the Sunny Orange paper pad to A2 size. Lightly ink blend with VersaFine Clair Cheerful and Tulip Red.  Adhere to a A2 card.  Adhere a white 4" x 5/14" white card to the center.  Add 3 flowers to the lower left corner and 1 flower to the upper right and corner.  Letting some of the flower hang off the card.  Add leaves underneath the flowers letting them hang off as well.  Trim off the excess.  Adhere the sentiment in the middle.  Add matching Fairy Jewels and Gemstones round from the lower right hand corner to the upper left hand corner.  The gem stones I used was Autumn and Treasure Chest.  








Your flowers are just gorgeous, lovely layering and coloring of them. Like the sentiment background done in the same colors!
