Classy Cards Birthday Wishes

Hello!   Lately I've been inspired by cards on Pinterest.  It's such a fun site and did you know that Classy Cards 'n Such has it's own Pinterest boards?  You can check them out HERE!

The only stamp I used is the huge Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card Wooden Plank.  I stamped it in vintage photo distress ink and then sponged weathered wood ink over it.  The entire panel was glued to a piece of Kraft Card Stock and then mounted onto an A2 card.  

The Memory Box Trellis Border Die was colored with antique linen and pumice stone distress inks. The pink flowers were cut with the Spellbinders Rose Creations die but you could get a similar look using the gorgeous new Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die Classy Cards now has in stock.  I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't sell out before my next order!  :)

The flowers were cut from white card stock.  The edges were sponged with pink distress ink and misted with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist. While still damp, I stacked the flower layers and then scrunched them up being careful not to rip the petals.  Scrunching gives them a more tattered, vintage feel.  I waited until they dried and then glued the layers together.  I used about four flower petals pieces per flower.  They were popped up using Joy! Foam pads for extra dimension.

The Memory Bamboo Shoots leaves were cut out of Wausau Index Green card stock and colored with peeled paint distress ink.  The Joy! Crafts Billie's Branches were colored with shaded lilac distress ink. I sponged pink  distress ink on the Memory Box Whimsy Circle and antique linen distress ink on the Memory Box Quinn Flourish die cut and glued them to the card before positioning and gluing the flowers, Billie's Flourish Branch and the Bamboo.

The Birthday Wishes sentiment die was colored with distress ink to match the bamboo shoots and are from an Impression Obsession Greetings Set.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
