{Neat & Tangled} Happy Birthday, Dad


We celebrated my Dad's birthday this weekend. Since he's an avid gardener, I often make floral cards for him. In fact, he prefers them over masculine cards. ;) This was the perfect opportunity to use Neat & Tangled's Paper Cut Flowers again. I stamped and heat embossed them in various colours on vellum and tucked them into the negative space of a frame created with the A Lot To Say die.


To create the sentiment, I used "Happy Birthday" from Just For You. I spelled "Dad" by masking and selectively stamping letters in the "One of a Kind" sentiment from Paper Cut Flowers. Since red is an important colour for happy occasions in the Chinese culture, I added an enamel heart to complete the visual triangle of reds.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Perfect card for your dad -- and these bright flowers are especially nice to see on a snowy and cold February day! They look so good tucked behind the speech bubble opening.
