Graceful Mustard - Birthday

Good Morning Everyone,

I am overwhelmed with the lovely comments and emails I am receiving from so many of you, thank you all so much.

On with today's card which I hope you will like.

Products Used: (which are also links to Phill's Website) :-)

8 x 8 Card Blank
White Card Stock
Brown Card Stock
Graceful Butterflies & Dragonflies Paper Pad
Graceful Mustard Twinkles
Graceful Mustard P.V.A.
Graceful Mustard Gilding Wax
Sentimentally Yours Birthday Verse 2 Collection Stamps A5
Sue Wilson Die - Classic Rose
Sue Wilson Die - Austrian Collection - Innsbruck
Spellbinder Die Dragon Delight
Walnut Stain Distress Ink

 Using a sheet of Mustard Dragonfly paper from the paper pad I attached this to front of the card blank.

Then using the Rose Dies I cut the apertures in the top left hand corner. Next I used Mustard Twinkles around the edges of the apertures.

I then cut out the Dragonflies using off cuts of brown and white card, and attached these to the card.
Then added Mustard Twinkles and Mustard P.V.A. to decorate.


Using the two largest  Innsbruck Dies and Brown Card stock I cut the dies out.

Then using the smallest plain oval die cut out using  White Card Stock.
Using Walnut Stain Ink I stamped the Birthday Verse Sentiment.
I then edged this with Mustard Gilding Wax, and Mustard Twinkles to the brown oval.

Using a sheet of plain white card stock I sprayed it with Mustard Mister Spray and then cut several of the roses out, I also used scraps of Graceful Mustard paper.

I made the roses up, then closing the card I lined the roses up attached to the inside of the card, (through the aperture)

I cut 3 triangles from the paper pad and added these to the corners of the inside of the card, and finally finished with a dragonfly.

                               Happy Crafting
