Blooming Birthday Wishes

Have you noticed that I really like this stamp set? This card is so simple that you can create a dozen in less than an hour.  Here are a few tips: 1) I used the corner rounder on two opposite sides of the flower image to soften the look and to help coordinate with the rounded images of the designer paper. 2) I sponged the edges of the cardstock where the flower and words are stamped. To do this, rub a wedge of a Stampin' Sponge on your ink pad then gently brush the outside edge of your cardstock. 3) You'll need 8" of ribbon to make the bow.
