Floral Acetate Birthday card

Good Morning all and welcome to Monday.  I hope you all had a good weekend.

Today i am sharing a card and chocolate wrapped set i made for a good friends birthday. 

6x6 Acetate cardbase, i then used this beautiful floral paper as the insert.  A white die cut frame added with foam tape to the front, white die cut birthday sentiment.  I then fussy cut some of the flowers and leaves out of the left over paper, gently shaped and added to the front.  Glitter glue to highlight and embellish. 

Close up showing some detail

Just showing the insert, the paper is double sided with a lovely pale lemon inside. I added the glue for the insert under the frame so you can't see if through the acetate. 

Chocolate bar wrapper.  I wrapped the paper around the bar to make a sleeve, stamped greeting die cut into a rectangle and more fussy cut flowers to finish. 

I just love this paper so was nice to use it as the main feature for the card and not hiding it all.  Its from Crafts you create 'springtime', the papers are very good quality and lovely designs. 

Items used:
Crafts you create 'springtime' papers (B&M)
Mama elephant frame die
Cheerylynn Birthday sentiment die
Stampin up 'sassy salutation' stamp
Hunkydory acetate
Stickles fruit punch

Thank you for stopping by and all your comments last week.  I hope you all have a good week, its a busy one for me starting with dentist today. Emma
