Revamped Birthday Card

I mentioned yesterday that I spent Sunday afternoon with a wonderful group of women who were (almost) all new to stamping.  At the hostess' request we made one birthday card and two Christmas cards.  The birthday card I chose is a revamped version of a card I did a while back. 

Birthday card featuring the Bordering Blooms and Tag Talk stamp sets.
To start, I stamped the border image from Bordering Bloooms in Old Olive ink on Whisper White card stock.  Then I embossed the panel using the Perfect Polka Dots TIEF, leaving the stamped portion smooth.  I added some Strawberry Slush thick baker's twine and some little flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes (retired) punch pack.  The label, from the Tag Talk set, is stamped in Strawberry Slush and punched using the Bracket Label punch.  Of course, a card just isn't a card without some bling, which I added liberally ;)


The front panel is matted on a piece of Old Olive card stock and mounted on a Strawberry Slush card base.


On the inside I stamped the border again along the opposite edge and added a few more punched flowers.  The sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set and is stamped in Strawberry Slush ink, punched with the Lg. Oval punch and layered on a Scallop Oval in Old Olive.  A little more bling and...voila...a fun and easy birthday card.  Perfect for a group of new stampers to have success!
