Birthday botanicals

I always need birthday cards and decided to create a couple of cards featuring the new Stampin' Up! Botanicals Builder framelits.

 
The key to both these cards to is die cut the leaf vine from the Stampin' Up! Botanical Builders framelits set from two different coloured pieces of card stock.  I chose to use Melon Mambo and Basic Black card stock and you do need to keep all the little leaves that fall out of the die (which you would normally throw away).  When you interlace the two different coloured card stock together, you then glue the individual little leaves back in place to complete the card.  The fern leaves and flowers were also die cut using dies from the same Botanical Builders framelit set.  The sentiments are from the Wetlands stamp set which I punched out using the Large Oval and Scallop Oval punches.

 
I used Wild Wasabi card stock for the fern leaves on this card.  One of the small Iced Rhinestones was added to the centre of the flower.
 


This card is for those who like a little bling.  I used Silver Glimmer paper to make the fern leaves and added Rhinestones to the flower and sentiment too for a bit of sparkle.

The key products used on this card have been listed below - just click on the picture and it will take you to my online store where the product can be purchased.  The Botanical Gardens suite can be purchased as a bundle saving you 15% off RRP - it contains the Botanical Builder Framelits, Botanical Blooms stamp set and Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.  Papercrafting classes are available.
