Little Birdie Poppies and Roses Card

Hello everyone! I've got two posts today and the first is this pretty, pretty birthday card I made for my sister using Little Birdie flowers, decorative chipboard, and Poppies and Roses cardstock collection. I was inspired by my crafty pal Ginny Nemchak (Polly's Paper Studio) who is the queen of card making, in my opinion. I pin so many of Ginny's cards on Pinterest for inspiration! The card below was my inspiration for my card.


This card is one of my all-time favorites of Ginny's because of the lovely layering of all the elements.


I used this beautiful collection of flowers, focusing on the stemmed pieces for my card.


The 6 x 6 pad is just the right size for card making, and this is cardstock, not paper. Each sheet is thick and one-sided.


To frame my stamped phrase, I added the Primed Chipboard Oval. (Psst, chipboard is 50% right now on their website!)


I planned out my pieces for a 5" x 7" card, fussy cut some elements, and prepared my card base.


I dabbed a bit of pale ivory paint over the chipboard frame and adhered it to my stamped phrase. This stamp sentiment comes from a new stamp set from Close To My Heart called "Sentiments and Stitches." (C1835)


I decorated the inside of the card to make it extra special, as well as to balance out the weight of the front of the card. This is a good, heavy card! I will package it up in a small mailing box or padded envelope to protect it.
