Birthday Card

Last weekend was my niece's 23rd birthday and I'd like the share the card I made for her.  Since I'm on the Design Team for Cuddly Cute Designs, I wanted to make my card for her using one of their designs.  As I was going through all my CCD patterns trying to decide which one to use, I came across the "Bear With Roses" file and remembered that my niece's middle name is Rose.  That was it -- I knew I had to use that one.

I wanted to keep the card pretty simple, so I decided to use just the bundle of roses that is part of this pattern.  Here's my card:

The roses in this pattern are very easy to assemble and I just LOVE the dimensional look they have.  Each rose has 5 pieces, not counting the stems & leaves, but please don't let that scare you LOL!  Like I said, very easy to assemble!

After completing my bundle of roses, I glued them onto a scalloped oval I had made a long time ago and didn't use.  They fit perfectly onto this oval and the end result was a very pretty but simple card front.

I printed off my simple birthday sentiment for the inside of the card, glued a 2" strip of the red paper on the opposite side of the cover (which I forgot to photograph!) and slipped a little "something" into it for the birthday girl.  Quick and easy card, but one with a lot of heartfelt thought put into it.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time... Happy Scrapping!
