My Daughter's Birthday Card

Yesterday was my oldest child's 20th birthday.  I can't believe my baby is no longer a teenager.  The time sure goes by fast!  This is the birthday card I made her yesterday.  Her favorite color is purple, so, of course, I had to put a lot of purple in it.  I CASEd a card made by Connie Babbert when making this one.

I used the sneak peek stamp set, Delicate Doilies.  This pretty set will be available to purchase beginning Friday, after 2:00 p.m. EST.  The greeting is a level one hostess set from the Summer Mini called Swirls & Curls Verses (p. 4).  I made the flower using the Island Floral Bigz Die.  The flower petals were made with White Vellum card stock, and embossed with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  The leaves were made with Pear Pizzazz card stock, and embossed with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  The Wisteria Wonder (purple) layer of the card was embossed with the Framed Tulips Impressions Folder.  I think that's the most Impressions Folders I've ever used on one card!  The flower center was made with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (p. 6 in the Summer Mini) and a Pretty in Pink flower brad from the Subtles Flower Brads Pack.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I did add a strip of designer paper from the Sneak Peek paper, Flirtatious Specialty DSP.  It's under the flower.  The flower petal layers are also separated with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I cut little strips from the scraps of the dimensionals and attached them below the flower center so they couldn't be seen.  Then, I attached the flower to the card with dimensionals as well.  I then attached the leaves underneath with Snail Adhesive.
