Happiness on Fifth Ave

This is another birthday card that I made recently for one of the girls at school! I decided to use the flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and my Circle Scissors Plus to create this feature using some watercoloured flowers.

I stamped a range of flowers onto Watercolour Paper and watercoloured them using Baja Breeze & Pacific Point inks. I cut out the large feature circle using my Circle Scissors Plus and cut out some separate flowers to use at the bottom of the card. I found a great technique on Sarah-Jane’s blog to make this Scalloped Circle around the outside of my large circle – it uses the Scallop Oval Punch to punch out some scallops and then you arrange these around the outside to create a large scallop circle. It was a little fiddly, but I think it gives a nice effect! I think my scallops still aren’t lined up as well as I would like, so I will have to work on this effect some more!

I also used the co-ordinating Urban Oasis DSP (love this paper!!) as a background, and it has the large rose from the Fifth Ave Floral stamp set which I think ties it altogether well! I added another strip of this DSP along the bottom, punched with my Eyelet Border Punch, and my sentiment is one of the beautiful ones from the Whimsical Words set from the Sale-a-Bration offer (to find out how to get this FREE stamp set, just click here!).

I’ll be back with some more Sale-a-Bration cards soon – I made a cute card set using the Happy Moments and Whimsical Words stamps! I’m just finishing editing the photos and they will be up here after that!
