Upsy Daisy - Happy Birthday


This was my first get together with my new SU! group, and man can you tell I had fun. My card looks awesome, so that means it's good enough to blog AND to pass on to a deserving friend. I think my dearest friend Shirley (aka Group Demostrator) designed a beautiful card for this months get together. Great colors, great stamps & to top it off, I even learned a new technique... Wowzers!! {Happy Dance}

First off cut your whisper white and certainly celery out using the top note die cut. Trim away the preforated line of the white top not die cut, and stamp your upsy daisy image close to the top. Also leave enough room at the bottom of your white die cut to add your sentiment near the bottom.

Place some ribbon around the white top note, 1st layer is white organza, 2nd layer is pink & 3rd layer is silver elastic cording. I took my white top note die cut and pop dotted it only my certainly celery top note.

Here is a closer look:

Next, using the background image pretty petals. Color the different images using SU! Markers, then stamp a piece of whisper white paper. The backgroup image was then glued onto a piece of certainly celery and attached to the base of your card.

For the embellishment, the butterfly image was stamped with versamark ink and embossed with silver embossing on silver paper. Punched out with the 1" circle punch, and pop dotted onto 1 1/4" circle punch of certainly celery. Some pink ribbon is glued to the back and I pop dotted my embellishment onto the front of the card. {I love those pop dots}
