Happy Birthday Card Using Tranquil Tide Cardstock

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I wish to share another card I made using the Eastern Beauty stamp set and the Eastern Medallion Thinlits dies from Stampin' Up!.  I really love using these two sets right now!  I also used the Happy Birthday Greeting from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, which I feel looks great!  What do you think?

Whisper White cardstock scrap:  2 1/2" square
1. Fold your cardstock base in half.
2. Take the large Eastern Medallion die, place onto the Tranquil Tide cardstock mat and diecut out using your Big Shot machine.  Cut the die away from the cardstock.
3.  Die cut the same large Eastern medallion die again from the scrap of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. Cut out the die shape from the cardstock.
4. Using Tranquil Tide Ink stamp the flower shape and then die cut using the matching die.

7.  Take the Flirty Flamingo ribbon and wrap around the left hand side of the Tranquil Tide Cardstock mat (see photo) and tie a knot.  Secure the knot to the cardstock base with a mini glue dot.
8.  Attach the Tranquil Tide cardstock mat to your card base.
9.  Glue your Flirty Flamingo die cut medallion into the cutout circle (see photo).
10.  Glue the die cut and stamped flower medallion to the center of the Flirty Flamingo medallion.
