Altenew Rose Flurries Birthday Card

My son turns 23 tomorrow, and I wanted to make him a special card to celebrate! To start, I chose a white A2 card base. Then I created a blue panel just slightly smaller than the card base. On a white panel just slightly smaller than the blue one, I used Altenew's Geo Steps 3D embossing folder to emboss the background. I stamped "Have a perfect birthday" and "Love you" using my Sizzix Stencil and Stamp Tool. 

Then I arranged the florals and foliage from Altenew's Rose Flurries 3D Die Set (some I cut from colored cardstock and some I used my Ohuhu alcohol ink markers to color) and used some Glad Press 'n Seal to keep them where I wanted them as I glued them down. I decided to add some blue pearls because I needed to cover a spot where my ink smudged by the "H" in "Have." 😁Embellishments have saved the day for me on more than one occasion!
