Everything Eleanor Birthday Card

I am now going to start to make a concerted effort to blog at least once a week, lets see how it goes.

This card was made using the gorgeous, but in my case, under used Everything Eleanor stamp set.  The colours used are Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral, which work so well together.

I used a standard square stock cream card layered this up with Whisper White cardstock stamped with the swirl design from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake and then overstamped with the large flower design in Calypso Coral.  I then restamped some more of the flowers and cut these out and raised them with 3d foam onto the single layered images.  I only did this with 3 of the flowers to get some depth into the card.

I finished off the card with a sentiment stamp from Hobby Art, a few gems in the centres of the flowers and a little metal/enamel butterfly that I had in stock (no idea where from).

The final section was to layer the card onto Calypso Coral card and then a subtle strip of Crumbe Cake across the centre back of the card.  A flower was then stamped on the front of the envelope to really give it the personal treatment.

Hope you like!
