Floral and Copper Birthday Card

I love it when a plan I didn’t have comes together. Like when two different companies whose products I love each come out with products that work together. Which of course means I have to get them because, well, they can’t be separated right?

I made this birthday card using a new stack from DCWV called Serenity, a Grand Adhesions pack from K and Co called Engraved Garden, and die cuts from their Edamame collection.

TAIC Copper Birthday

The Serenity stack has coordinating florals and other patterns and some of the papers have foil accents. I used a large and small version of the same foral pattern for the background and center of the card.

K&CO Engraved Garden

The Grand Adhesions dimensional word stickers are all in one piece so they’re super simple to use. Peel. Stick. Done. The letters look a little brassy in this pic but they are a gorgeous metallic copper.

TAIC Floral Close Up

I layered the butterfly die cut using dimensional foam dots and embellished with self adhesive pearls. This was one of those cards where less was more so I actually kept embellishments to a minimum which is a challenge for me!

Beautiful colors, and I love the scattered insects against the big butterfly! (I am a fan of scattered insects! Not in real life, tho.)
