Awesomely Artistic Birthday Card Tutorial

1) Cut Rose Red cardstock 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 Scored at 4 1/4; Cut Smoky Slate Layer 5 1/4 X 4; cut whisper white layer 5 X 3 3/4 and another panel for the interior of your card 5 1/4 X 4

2) On the whisper white layer start by inking the leaf in old olive. You may want to first stamp off on a scrap piece of paper so that the ink will not be too dark and then stamp onto your card panel where you want the leaves to show up. Next, using rose red ink stamp the floral image on the panel over the leaves at the top portion of the card and again at the lower portion of the card leaving enough room for the sentiment. 

3) In rose red ink stamp the 'happy birthday' sentiment in the center of the card.

4) Take the 'dotted grunge' stamp, ink it in smoky slate and lightly and randomly stamp over the whisper white panel. Adhere this layer to the smoky slate cardstock and then adhere this panel to the rose red card base. 

5) Stamp the inside sentiment on the 5 1/4 X 4 panel in rose red. If you would like you can stamp some of the flowers in a lower corner as well.
