Growing Green birthday


So, that friend who loves Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso just happens to have a birthday on Christmas Day. Inconvenient, eh? Poor Alison, her birthday is pretty much a non-event for her every year.

Here’s the card I made her – which I copied and adapted from a sample in the US Idea Book & Catalogue which somebody was kind enough to give me for ideas. Their sample used a stamp set we don’t have, but that never puts me off using an idea.

I stamped the main flower in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla cardstock then coloured it in using the ink from the Early Espresso ink pad lid and a blender pen. The two flowers behind the main image are stamped in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut out. The photo makes it look a bit flat but there is a slight 3D effect, even though I haven’t popped them up using Dimensionals.

The largest flower in the background is stamped on Crumb Cake using Crumb Cake ink.

The greeting is from the Perfect Punches stamp set – I inked up just the words, omitting the oval outline, using an Early Espresso marker.
