April Birthday

If your birthday is in April this card could be going to you!


I used two different stencils for this card. Marianne Designs Star Collection PD 0015 and Happy Birthday Fun HBM 7001 I  used the PD 0015 stencil just about as is but omitted the pricking and instead added the sentiment stamp. After cutting it out around the edges I mounted it on green cardstock and cut around it with scissors leaving a narrow border. After embossing and cutting the corners on the back panel I used my Martha Stewart score board to emboss a rectangle and then cut out the middle and backed it with DP. This was then adhered to the card base and the top layer was mounted with dimensional tape. The flowers are hand cut from a 3d sheet from my stash. For the butterfly I colored a piece of vellum and used a MS punch. A few half pearls and the card was done!
