Clearly Besotted Tulips Wish Mom Happy Birthday

This soft card was created for a dear friend's mother. I was given free range to create a card as long as it wished her mother Happy Birthday and this is what I came up with.

I love these Tulips from Clearly Besotted's stamp set Friends Forever and try to use them as often as possible because Clearly Besotted does flowers right. I stamped the image on Neenah Solar White 80# Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers ( R12, R32, Y00, YG21, YG25 & YG17). Then I die cut it using the coordinating die.

While I had my die cutting machine out I also cut the main panel out of some MFT Watercolor Wash Brights 6x6 in the aqua shade with a Gina Marie wonky stitched rectangle die and the word Mom from a SSS die set from both black and Neenah White I colored to match with the R Copic Markers.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Let's Bokkeh stamp set onto black cardstock using Ranger's white embossing powder and trimmed it down to a thin strip.

The pieces went together really quickly once I had everything together. I layered the die cut rectangle onto black cardstock then onto white and then onto some SSS dark grey cardstock.

Then I placed the main image onto the left side of the main card panel and layered the black sentiment strip over it after trimming it and creating an angled banner end with scissors.

I layered the two die cut words, Mom using some Ranger Multi Medium Matte Adhesive and adhered it below the sentiment strip.

Three sequins from Lucy's cards finish the card front.

I finished the inside with a strip of the watercolor printed paper and a fun sentiment by Two Lips Stamp Company called Say Out Loud.

Please let me know what you think of today's card. I'd love to know.
