Apothecary Art Birthday Card

apothecary art birthday flower card 2 The Natural Composition specialty paper is a perfect backdrop for the bright Melon Mambo label.  I hope you can see the beautiful glossy, raised note pattern on this paper.  I used the decorated jar on page 137 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog as inspiration for this card.  Do you need a catalog?  Send me a note and I’ll get one out to you.

To create the label I inked up the midsize Apothecary Art stamp with Wild Wasabi and then went over the border with a Chocolate Chip marker before stamping on Whisper White cardstock.  The stamped label was cropped out with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and Labels Collection Framelits.  I layered the label on Melon Mambo cardstock which was also die cut with a framelit a size larger.

To make the flowers I punched out the four-petal flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and curled the petals to the center.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue to flowers together and to adhere the flowers to the label.  To finish the flowers, I added a bitty adhesive-backed pearl to the centers.

The happy birthday sentiment was stamped on Chocolate Chip cardstock with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder for a crisp look.  The ends were flagged with the 1″ square punch.  For tips on creating banners and flag ends, watch this short video.

    Using the punch pack flowers sure beats coloring in those little flowers! Now I need to pull that set back out and use that idea. Thanks for sharing,

    Gorgeous, Mynnette! I love what you’ve done with this color combo. So many wonderful delatis! I especially love the subtle dry embossing and the flower center! Thanks for playing along with the CASE Study challenge!
