Dainty Delight Birthday Card

 Hello friends! What a strange week it has been. Wednesday was absolutely gorgeous and sunny. I took my little miss for a nice long walk outside in the afternoon. Then Thursday, we woke up to a few inches of snow. I am definitely ready for Spring weather!

Today's card was made specially for a friend's Mom who is turning 107. Yes that is correct, she is 107 years young! She is a remarkable lady in every aspect and I feel so lucky to know her. She is sharp as a tack and such a sweet lady.

I wanted to use the Dainty Delight Bundle and to be honest, I wanted to use some Pool Party ribbon but by the time the card came together it was too busy for ribbon. That is a very hard thing for me because I love ribbon.

I started by stamping one of the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used the coordinating die from the bundle to cut it out. I then used my Stampin' Blends to colour the flowers and leaves. The colours I used are Granny Apple Green, Fresh Freesia, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo.

I used a Pool Party card base for my card. On top of that I added a piece of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I used my Blending Brush to add some Pool Party ink all around the edges of this cardstock.

I used the curved vine die from the bundle and cut it out of some Granny Apple Green cardstock. I cut out two of the vines and put the together to create a large oval frame. I added these vines to my embossed cardstock. I added my floral image to the center of the oval using dimensionals.

On a small strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set. I cut a banner cut into both edges of my sentiment piece. I used the Blending Brush to add Pool Party ink to all edges of my sentiment piece. I added this to the card using dimensionals.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy this card. I hope Jo likes her card. I am so impressed by her!

Stay well and keep creating!
