This card was made as a simple Design Team feminine birthday card for WWC202 - Dawn's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge.
I diecut the blossoms using two different sizes of dies from the Stampin' Up! (SU) "Swirly Squiggles" Thinlits dies, from alternating paper colors for same family of colors, but different intensities. I glued each die cut onto a scrap of it's same-family color cardstock, then using paper snips, cut close to the outside edge of each die cut. For the larger blossoms, I cut off the outer ring of the blossom die cut, and glued the smaller die cut inside the larger before trimming around the outside of the larger blossom.
Using a 4"x 5.25" SU Smoky Slate panel as my card front, I then attached some of these blossoms directly on the panel with Tombow glue, and attached others using adhesive foam strips to give more depth.
The sentiment was stamped using SU Melon Mambo ink, and two enamel dots were added in the empty space to the left of the sentiment for balance. I used my MISTI to stamp the birthday sentiment three times to ensure it was a solid color.
This completed front panel was then glued to the SU Melon Mambo card base using Tombow glue.
The card was pretty straightforward to make, so I am rating its difficulty level as a "1" out of a possible "5".
