Happy Birthday Flower Garden

by - April 23, 2015

Miss Kim is on the blog today with a spiffy new card using a...napkin!  I have used napkins before for cards, but I have never heard of this technique that she used and holy cow!  Talk about a heck of a lot less messy than slopping up my paper with glue and pressing the napkin into this.  This is FAB!

Check out her card and this fun technique!

The April challenge at So Suzy Stamps is…Birthday!
Challenge April 2015
Did you know that So Suzy Stamps
can be found on InstagramFacebookPinterest and Twitter.
Yes, you should join us there and find more inspirations and fun!!

The background is a napkin!
The technique is to sandwich a piece of plastic wrap (not Glad – microwave safe – doesn’t melt) between cardstock and the printed napkin layer (take off the white layers).  Put a towel or paper on top of this and heat it to fuse the cardstock, plastic, and napkin together.
  1. Card Base:  5.5 x 5.5, Bazzill medium brown cardstock, opens from the top.
  2. First Layer:  5.25 x 5.25 white cardstock.
  3. Second Layer:  5 x 5.  Cypress  Field of Flowers napkin.
  4. Stamp:  First Layer – card base cardstock 2.25 circle.  Second Layer – white cardstock, distressed with Distress Ink – Marmalade & Lemonade.  Stamp:  So Suzy Stamp, inked with Distress Ink – Honey, embossed with clear powder, and highlighted with Copic marker B02 (flower) and G43 (leaves).
  5. Bottom:  Canvas Home Basics burlap (cut in half), a scrap thread of burlap made into a bow, and a flat matte pearl.
  6. Sentiment:  Unity stamp, inked with Distress Ink – Ocean, and stamped on the same cardstock as the base.
