Apothecary Birthday

Good morning, Friends! I hope your New Year is off to a great start! I think this is still considered vacation to many of you. I am looking forward to watching the Rose Parade and football games today!! I always love watching the Rose Parade. Such beautiful floats! And it is always interesting to see what they use. Nick has been getting a bedroom make-over and it should be done today. Pat and Nick have been working hard on it and it looks pretty good! Now if I could just get a craft room make-over...

Today's card uses some great new products! You will soon be able to order these, too!! My card base is Very Vanilla. Then I cut a piece of Soft Suede and attached two different designs from the Attic Boutique designer paper pack. Then I added a strip of Daffodil Delight with both ends flagged. This was to cover up the seams. This whole panel is popped up on the card. Then I cut a piece of Very Vanilla with the labels framelits die and glued it down. Then I stamped the image from Apothecary Art onto Very Vanilla with Soft Suede ink. I colored in the flowers with Pool Party and a blender pen. Then I cut around the image. I stamped the greeting on a strip of Very Vanilla in Soft Suede and flagged both ends of this before gluing it down. This frame is popped up onto the first frame. The last thing I did was to add a few pearls to the flower centers. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Deb, this is a beautiful card. I love the two pieces of DSP you used for the background layer. They go together very nicely. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work. Karen
