Magnolia Lane Birthday Card with 3D Flower
I absolutely love the Magnolia Lane Suite found on page 37 in our new annual catalog. It is stunning!! You can choose to buy it all together for one low price or in pieces. I didn’t want (or would use) all of it, so I bought it in pieces.
Magnolia Lane Suite #152178
This birthday card pops a punch with the 3D magnolia I attached as the focal point to the front. Let me show you how I made it:
I started with a basic black cardstock as my base, measuring (hamburger fold) 5.5″ X 8.5″ scored in half at 4.25″.
I picked out a piece of Memory Lane Designer Series Paper and cut it to 4″ x 5.25″ and then a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock measuring just a hair bigger. I mean I literally took my pink piece cut it at 4.25″ x 5.5″ (the same size as the card) and then shaved a hair off each side until I got it to mat the DSP perfectly. It was scientific at all, sorry about that!
I adhered the DSP and the Petal Pink together with snail and then that to the basic black card front and set it aside.
Next, I created my sentiment. The ‘happy birthday’ comes from Here’s A Card stamp set. I have mentioned this before and I am doing it again, I love this stamp set. It is brand new this year in our annual catalog and found first thing, on page 15. I grabbed for these sentiments over any other, A LOT!!
I stamped ‘happy birthday’ in Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out with a stitched shape oval. I adhered it to a scallop oval from the layering oval dies in Petal Pink. I adhered them both flat onto my DSP with snail.
Last but not least, I made my 3D flower. What fun. I used the Magnolia Memory Dies and cut out petals, stamens and leaves to create my flower.
I used: 1 large petal, 2 small petals, 1 large stamen, 1 small stamen, 2 large leaves and 2 small leaves.
I cut the stamens out of Crushed Curry and the leaves out of Mossy Meadow. I cut the petals out of Whisper White and used my sponge dauber and sponged the centers and sides in Petal Pink classic ink. I then put them all together in an assembly line, using mini glue dots and dimensionals. The flower turned out perfectly.
I hope you love this project as much as I do! It would make a perfect card for a loved one. I know exactly who I am giving my card too.
Have a terrific weekend and I’ll see you soon!
