ID: MC July/16 - Quill  - ECD Happy Birthday - You're Never Too Old - HB card
size:5"w x 7"h

Created: July 3, 2016

I created these purple/yellow flowers at the last quilling session - playing with Malaysian style coils. and as I was making them I knew I wanted them to sit on a bed of tiny yellow flowers...

I'm using an "A Way With Words" die from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Happy Birthday ") available in the near future, designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using part of a quote stamp, sentiment and design element stamps from Quietfire Design  

("A Mother's Greatest Masterpiece" 4pce set); ("Calligraphic Love Bits" 6pce set); ("We Cannot Tell the Precise..." 2pce companion set)


Scored and folded my deep yellow toned "Star Dream Amber Metallic" cardstock (

Cut a piece of purple cardstock 1/4" smaller all around. Embossed with Couture Creations "Tied Together" embossing folder, then hit the high points lightly with a Distress pad "Picket Fence". Adhered to card front.

Created a yellow background paper from 90# CP watercolor paper and Brusho powders in various yellows, spraying with lots of water. Dried and die cut using Impression Obsession "die 140-D". Tooled them on a piece of fun foam and a medium sized balled stylus. Adhered them all to my card front.

Adhered my quilled elements, adding the floral pearl centers.

Die cut the leaves (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Leafy Branch" from a greenish background paper I had in my stash. Pinched off sections and adhered under quilled flowers.

Added Liquid Pearls "Orchid" dots in the centers of all the mini yellow flowers.

Stamped part of the quote and the flowers design element stamp using Versafine "Imperial Purple" and hitting here and there with Black Onyx, clear embossed on cream toned cardstock. Die cut the smallest oval (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals"), sponged some "Scattered Straw" around the edges and adhered to card front. Added some Liquid Pearls (Buttercup & Key Lime) to the flower and a small narrow ribbon purple bow to the oval


On the inside: Created an eCut file of the stamp by CC Designs "Dragonfly Floral" and cut from white cardstock. Inked the stamp with the Versafine purple and "Olympia Green", clear embossed. Painted with QoR watercolors, dried and added some Viva Glitter Liner "Holo Iridescent" on the wings using my finger. Adhered to inside of card.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday" from white cardstock, inked with the purple and embossed with Emerald Creek "Frosted Plum" embossing powder. Adhered to inside.

Stamped the "my friend" with the purple and clear embossed.
