Birthday Wishes Ranunculus Card

February is a big month for birthdays in my circle of friends and family! I have 3 cousins with birthdays and a couple friends with birthdays this month, so I've been busy creating some birthday cards.

For this card, I created a top-folding A2 card base out of double-sided orange card stock with polka dots on one side and plain orange on the other. Then I die cut dies from SU!'s retired Ranunculus Romance set. I cut a panel of pretty floral pattern paper and then adhered it to the card base. I adhered the die cut flower with foam tape and the leaves with liquid glue onto the pattern paper. Then I heat embossed the "Sending you birthday wishes" onto an orange panel in white embossing powder and popped that up using foam tape. It's still cold and snowy here in Michigan, but this card reminds me that spring will eventually arrive!
