Happy Birthday Card!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

It's Nancy, from The Nickel Nook, back with a new project share!

Aren't dies wonderful?
They make it so fun to create a new project,
Each die has such a great variety of creative possibilities!

The featured die set on my card, the Petite Peony Cluster,
is one that I will be playing with often. 

Here's my card:

I began with a white A2 card base.
To that I added added the green designer paper.
I cut the brown print down to 4" x 5 1/4".
I then used the Tutti Designs - Nesting Stitched Ovals die to cut an oval from the center.
I cut a second oval from the script paper.
I adhered the brown print to the green background. 
Then I adhered the oval in place using foam tape. 
It is raised enough that you can get just a hint of the green around the edges.

I then cut two of the frame pieces from the Petite Peony Cluster die,
from some matching green cardstock. 
I adhered them in place on either side of the oval,
with half of the cut extending out from the oval. 

I then cut six of the single flowers, from the blue print designer paper. 
I shaped them, to add dimension, before adhering them in place. 
I then added a green rhinestone to the center of each flower. 

Finally, I die-cut the Happy Birthday from the Impression Obsession - Greetings Set.
These greetings are such a lovely font, and so intricate.
It's one of my "Must Have" sets!

 There you have Happy Birthday card!
