Cherry Blossom Birthday

     A new project for Creative Expressions this morning using a John Lockwood Striplet stamp, Cherry Blossom. I love oriental designs so this stamp will be used a lot!
     It's a very basic card, nice and easy to make and no additional postal costs either.

    The design is stamped on to smooth white card using Perfect Medium, it's them embossed with CE Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold.
     I have used Graph It alcohol markers (9201, 5110) to colour the flowers and the open area in the middle. I stamped some extra flowers and cut them out so I could add dimension to the card. Each little extra flower has a tiny gem in the middle.
     The design panel has been cut out and mounted flat onto a plain white DL card blank, I wanted to keep the whole card very simple.
     The greeting is die cut in gold mirri card and glued on flat to the design, the only raised work are the flowers so this scan be sent in the post without too much trouble.
