Floral Birthday Card

Hi friends.  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft sharing a pretty floral birthday card showcasing some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Have you seen the beautiful new January Ribbon Club Assortment?  This pretty assortment is themed for Valentine’s Day, but as you can see, it works for other things too.  If you love pink, you will LOVE this assortment.

This pretty assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

I don’t know about you, but I’m having trouble getting back in the groove after the holidays.  It doesn’t help that it’s freezing outside.  It’s been in the single digits for days with no end in sight.  Makes me want to crawl back in bed and pull the covers over my head!

So, flowers and pink are in order!  Flowers always make me happier.
My background die is the pretty Alpine Flourish Doily.  This is one of the dies in my very first order from Cheery Lynn Designs and I still love it as much as I did all those years ago and it’s so versatile.  The lovely sentiment is from the Happy Greetings Set from Graciellie Design.

My roses were made with the Small and Medium Tea Rose Dies.  I alternated solid pink cardstock with some Distress Ink cardstock I created for a little more depth in the flowers.  The petals layers were shaped with a stylus and foam pad before assembling.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow which was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using ribbons from the January Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow was topped with a pretty Star Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

I love the classic white/black color combination and by adding one bright color you can really make it pop.

I used some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs to create my card along with the gorgeous ribbons from the December Ribbon Club Assortment.

Cheery Lynn Designs Flower Power Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs Flower Power Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cherry’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

Our blog hop today is all about FLOWERS.  I just love creating gorgeous three dimensional paper flowers and Cheery Lynn Designs has some wonderful flower dies.

I found the frame I used in the discount area at one of the chain craft stores and it’s been waiting for it’s moment to shine for a while now.  This blog hop was the perfect opportunity to pull it out and use it.

The lovely sentiment is a digital sentiment from the Graciellie Design ‘This Season’ set.

 

I created a base layer of greenery using the two flourishes and some of the foliage dies from the Floral Bouquet kit.  Then I created my flowers and added them on top.  My flowers were made using several distress ink papers I created which gives them a lot of depth and color.I will share one of my flower making video tutorials below.  You can find several more if you visit my YouTube channel.
