Happy Birthday Floral Folk Art Card

Happy Tuesday crafty friends,
I hope your day is going well and you are beating the heat wherever you're at. It has been sizzling here in Florida.
One of the best ways to beat the heat, is to stay inside and do a little crafting. I had the chance to work with some of the wonderful dies from Cottage Cutz's Folk Art dies. Here is what I created.

I created this birthday card for my future sister in law's birthday. My card is a side folding A4 card. I used the pretty flower dies from the Folk Art Mixed Flowers Die Set from CottageCutz.com  

I started by cutting out the various flowers from the die. I cut them all out from White cardstock. I then proceeded to color them with my markers. Some I did leave white. I added some foam to the back of some of them so I could give them some lift.

I used some lavendar paper for a mat. Here you can see that I ran it through my die cut machine with an embossing folder. Towards the top you can see where I used the nested stitched circle doily die. I used one of the smaller pierced circle dies for a mat. I then added the Happy Birthday Shadow die for the top and main sentiment.

Here is a closeup of some of the flowers I assembled on the top. I added some stickles to some of the centers and the various flowers. I also used some diamond dots for the centers of some of the others.

Here's another photos and it also shows the happy birthday on top of the circle pierced mat on top of the doily mat. You can see I used some foam tape to give it some lift.

Here is one last look at my finished card. I think it turned out very cute and I think she liked it. I used the colors in the purple family as that is her favorite color.
