SB Hydrangea Happy Birthday Card

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by!  It has been a beautiful day here in the Nations Capital and I managed to spenda little time outside enjoying the sun and the garden - I love Hydrangeas but sadly we don't have any at the moment - but working on it!!  

In the meantime I have stamped the hyderangea from the Bunny Stamp and Die Set from the Spring Love Collection by Stephanie Low using ImagineMemento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  The flower has been coloured using Chameleon  Pens - and cut/embossed using the co-ordinating die and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.


Cut/emboss one Nestabilities Celebrations Pierced Squares Etched Dies #5 #6 (#1 being the smallest) using Kaisercraft Golden Grove Patterned paper. Pop up onto a pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L Crafty Foam Tape.  Pop up the die cut Hydrangea on the left side of the card using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

Layer a pre-cut Kaisercraft sentiment, also from the Golden Grove Collection, onto a Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles SM Etched Dies #2 (#1 being the smallest) using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Adhere the layered sentiment onto the lower right hand side of the card front using E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong 

Glue a double bow using May Arts Ribbon to the stems of the flowers and add a recycled button with the shank removed to the knot.  a few random splashes have been used by dripping a glimmer spray nozel
