Purple Posy Floral Birthday Card

Purple Posy is not  a colour I’ve reached for much as we don’t have the inkpad but today I thought I use it in the Stampin’ Blends today to colour in this lovely floral birthday cake from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. This is one of the current sets available free with a qualifing order of £45.00 until the end of Sale-A-Bration on March 31st.

This image makes a great focal point for cards and with the matching die from the Birthday Dies set its easy to cut out too. I’ve coloured the main flowers with Purple Posy, the little berries with Rococo Rose and the leaves with Mint Macaron and I’ve used Crumb Cake to colour the cake stand.

For the background I ran some Whisper White cardstock through the Stone 3D Embossing Folder to add some subtle texture. I added a strip of Purple Posy In- Colour Designer paper to the bottom half of the textured cardstock and then added a stip of the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon, before adhering it all to a Mint Macaron layer and then the card base.

To finish the card I added a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set, stamped in Highland Heather onto a die cut scalloped label from the Sending Flowers Dies. I then added another scalloped label in Mint Macaron cut in half behind the sentiment to help it stand out.  I finished the card by adding my coloured and die cut floral cake to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Perfect birthday card for any female in your life.
