patterned paper: American Crafts (Metropolitan: City Park); KI Memories (Pop Culture: Jacks)

glitter: Doodlebug (Tangerine)

Non-kit items:

ink: Stampin’ Up!

Happy Birthday stamp: Heidi Swapp

Instructions:

  1. Fold 6 x 12” piece of cardstock in ½ to form card base.
  2. Adhere strip of City Park to piece of Jacks. Trim to fit card front—I made mine 5 ¾ x 5 ¾. Ink edges. Adhere decorative tape over seam.
  3. Stamp sentiment on left-side of card on little strip.
  4. On big side, rub-on an adhesive flower and pour glitter. Shake off excess and return to jar. ( I cut my flower center separate so I could use the tangerine glitter for it.)
  5. Hand-stitch stem and leaves for flower. Pencil in first and make stitching holes with a paper piercer. Stitch and then erase any stray pencil marks.
  6. Adhere to card front.
