Birthday Card for Grandma #2

This is the second card I made for my grandma, the first card was one my parents asked me to make so they could send one to her.

I just received a new batch of goodies from Papertrey Ink today and wanted to dive right into them.

I also used some of my favorite supplies from Stampin Up as well.

I also made a coordinating envelope to match using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope punch board.

This is they layout I started with and then changed it in the end.

I used a punch from We R Memory keepers to punch out the 3 by 4 cream piece.

The background paper is from Stampin up DSP Pocketfull Of Posies.
I used the remaining paper from the punch to cut out my flowers and the birthday die, using washi tape to hold the dies down.
These flower dies do not have holes to help punch out the paper and that's no problem just use some washi tape to get them out.
Ta Da.

The Stamp and Die sets are from Papertrey Ink: Polka Dot Parade #2 and Wonderful Words: Birthday.
I used the coordinating stamps and used Stampin Up So Saffron ink, they are not stamped perfect but hey every flower is unique.
First I die cut the birthday and stamped the coordinating stamp set on top in Stampin Up Crumb Cake ink, but I didn't stamp it perfectly, so I rethought and stamped first then die cut and it worked out pretty darn good.
I glued the big flowers first and pop doted the smaller flowers.

The stems are stamped in Stampin Up Pear Pizzazz ink.
