Faux Cloisonne' again - with leftovers

Hello. Well, I am back with that other Faux Cloisonne' card that I promised you with the leftover pieces from the big flower card in my previous post. So this time I used the smaller flower in Stampin Up's "Embrace Life" stamp set. Now, I am having some issues with the memory card for my digital camera, and had to scan the card instead. Urgh! Why didn't I keep an extra card around? Live and learn! Anyways, here is the card:
It is hard to tell in the picture, but all four corners of the base card are rounded, the flowers are mounted on Stampin Up Whisper White after running it through my cuttlebug with a nestibilities rectangle. Then I ran a piece of Stampin Up Pink Passion card stock through the cuttlebug with a scalloped rectangle nestibilities. Both rectangles are popped up with foam dimentionals. The birthday greeting (Stampin Up's "Warmest Regards") was first stamped on my Versamark pad, then directly to Pink Passion classic ink, then stamped on the card stock. Next I applied clear embossing powder from Stampin Up, and heat set.

I did want to mention that I stamped and embossed the flower buds first , cut them out, adhered them, then...added the stems using the same stamp, but only inking and embossing the stem, not the flower. If I have not explained this clearly, drop me an email, my contact info is on the side bar. If any of my local customers would rather learn to make this at a workshop, let me know and we will get one scheduled at your house or mine. That is all for today, I am off to spend quality time with my 9 year old before bedtime.

Blessings, Lisa
