I used the MFT 'Blueprints 18' die set and used one of the suggested sketches - I used the sketch at the bottom right but I tweaked it a little.
The A6 sized card base was made with SU! Bermuda Bay CS and I used a die from the 'Blueprints 18' set to cut out a diagonal row of holes and I glued a piece of white CS inside the card behind the . holes. I used dies from the set to cut the white and green panels but I did trim them a smidge to better suit the front of an A6 sized card. I embossed the Granny Apple Green piece with the SU! 'Petal Burst' embossing folder. I love the texture this folder gives and I think it echoes the shape of the stamped leaves perfectly! I stamped the flower in Bermuda Bay three times, fussy cut three layers and popped the flower up. I die cut and stacked three buttons, added some Bermuda Bay twine and glued the button to the flagged banner. I stamped the sentiment, cut it into a strip, used the SU! 'Banner' punch to create a flagged end and glued it in place. The final finishing touch to the card front was a couple of rhinestone jewels.
Here's the inside and the envelope. I was very happy how this card turned out, bright and cheery which is ideal for a birthday card!
