Happy Birthday in Copper & Pink

I needed a special birthday card for a friend who was celebrating a milestone birthday.  I remembered seeing a spectacular card posted by a fellow demonstrator and knew I needed to put my own twist on it. I love how it turned out and I got to use what might turn out to be my new favorite accessory – the 1/4" Copper Trim.  That ribbon is just yummy, you can stretch and shape it, showing off the loose weave mesh.  Here it my masterpiece!

This card is very dimensional so hand delivery was in order.

The Happy Birthday Thinlit was used to cut the greeting from Copper Foil Paper, to make it pop a little more I put a Basic Black die cut behind it, offsetting it just a bit.

The flowers are punched from the new Daisy Punch.  I spritzed them with water and scrunched and pinched them til I got the effect I wanted.  I layered two together and used Gold Faceted Gems for the centers. Thanks to fellow demonstrator, Monica Gale from the UK, for her gorgeous card that inspired me.

I was lucky enough to meet the uber talented Monica at a Stampin' Up! Convention a few years ago.  We had each made earrings from SU embellishments.  We decided to swap earrings right then and there.  Here is a photo of us wearing each others earrings.  That is Monica on the left

Here are the other products I used:

Powder Pink Card Stock for the square card base, 5" square I believe

The twigs were also cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, I used Basic Black Card Stock

Copper Metallic Thread was looped and tucked behind the flowers

I hope you have as much fun making this card as I did, but the real joy is giving it away!  You can order all the supplies from my online shop.
