Flower power birthday cards

Good Morning all, beautiful sunny morning down here.

So today a complete change from the baby cards, a full on flower cards i made for DC buddies birthdays in December.  Sorry its those curved border dies again, i was on a roll with them at the time.

So for this first one i kept the back of the card in tact and covered with patterned paper, i then die cut the front of the card with the spellbinders curved border dies. Happy birthday die matted onto paper to match the background, die cut leaves and ready made roses.

Showing the card closed with the background paper showing through.

This second one i made for the amazing Samsweep and is similar to some uploaded before which she loved, especially the one for Lizzy's birthday (link below if you fancy a peek at that one), different for me i went with more muted colours, the ready made carnations were white and i just edged with peach ink.  I do love how the light shows through the die cut detail.

Papers used on both cards is 'Zephyr' by prima

also a link back to one i made with these dies back in 2014 for anyone who is interested

Thank you for looking and all your amazing comments this week.  I hope you all have a lovely weekend and keep warm. Hugs Emma x
