Today is the birthday of my wonderful Mum, so happy 70th birthday Mum xx
When I first saw these papers in the catalogue, I thought they were ok, but when I actually saw them for real, they were lovely. May have to invest in some more 🙂

Cut out the leaves and flowers using the dies and set to one side.
Stamp your sentiment in Memento Black ink and add it to your So Saffron backing Cardstock using mini Stampin’ dimensionals.
Put the Very Vanilla front panel into the Coastal weave embossing folder and run it through your Big shot/embossing machine.
On the front of the envelope add the DSP panels to either side.
On the back flap of the envelope add one of your flowers.
Attach the inside layer of your card and add a flower to the bottom right-hand corner.
Now we can assemble the rest of our card.
Add the DSP to the bottom front of your card, leaving a slight border.
Layer the Embossed panel onto your card in the centre overlapping about half the DSP.
Add the sentiment to the bottom centre of your embossed panel.
Glue the leaves above the sentiment and add the flower using mini Stampin, Dimensionals.
Finally, add a little Wink of Stella to your flowers.
Saturday’s project will be a special birthday card.
Until next time, happy crafting
