Rosie Posie Birthday

I waited a long time to purchase the Rosie Posie & Rosie Posie Step 2 stamp sets and dies, but I'm so glad I have them now. This is my first card using this set - a birthday card for my husband's cousin. She will be 80 this month, so one of her daughters is arranging for 80 cards to be delivered on her birthday. Can you imagine having 80 cards and letters in your mailbox? I'm sure it will be a fun birthday celebration!!

I started by cutting the largest square from a Nestabilities die and then embossed Off the Grid (Stampin' Up) with gold embossing powder. Happy Birthday sentiment (Butterfly Dreams) was stamped with Berry Sorbet ink and fits perfectly in the top right corner. (The colour of the ink and cardstock looks like orange in this picture, but it really is Berry Sorbet!!)The front panel was matted with Berry Sorbet cardstock and then mounted onto the 4" square card base that was impressed with the Stitching Impression Plate.

The bottom left corner of the grid provided the perfect place for 3 of the small Rosie Posie flowers.  I die cut the flowers and then stamped them with the solid flower image (Rosie Posie) and the matching accent stamps (Rosie Posie Step 2) with Berry Sorbet/Raspberry Fizz; Harvest Gold/Summer Sunrise; Winter Wisteria (stamped off once to create the lighter flower and then full strength for the accents).

All of the leaves were stamped onto Spring Moss card stock with Old Olive ink  and then fussy cut. The flowers and leaves were positioned, some with 3D foam dots for added dimension. The brass adhesive dots finish off the front of the card. I did stamp the inside of the card with another flower and birthday sentiment, but I forgot to take a picture of it. I was in a rush to get it into the mail; it's on its way to Michigan!! Happy Birthday, June!!
