Flowers & Doily Happy Birthday Card

I picked up this rectangle doily stamp in the sale at the Glitter Pot.  I couldn't wait to ink it up and try heat embossing with white powder, I think it turned out nicely.  I stamped stems and flowers from the SU! Soft Summer set and cut them out.  The flowers are popped up and I added a pearl to each centre.

Again, I made a side opening landscape oriented A6 card - I think they stand up better than the cards with the fold at the top.  Also again, I cut off a strip from the right hand side and added a decorative punched border.  I used Nellie Multiframe oval dies for the sentiment and added tiny pearls.

As per usual, I stamped the inside of the card as well.  The doily looks great stamped in colour too!  I stamped the doily in Pear Pizzazz ink, cut it out and also stamped it in Crumb Cake ink, added the birthday wishes sentiment and cut out a strip to layer over the pear doily.  To finish off, I added a flower with a brad centre.

I really love that lace stamp. I've not seen it before, and I love what you did with it. The white embossing is awesome. The second card uses it well as well. Great creativity with this stamp. I just may need to find this stamp! Best, Curt
