Even though it's near Christmas Day, the weather outside isn't very tropical but I loved the new "Botanical Garden Designer Series Paper" and the new "Rose Wonder" stamp set that will become available for you to purchase with the new Handmade From the Heart Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up and Sale-A-Bration Catalog that begins on January 5th.

I just loved the Designer Series Paper with all of its tropical images, flowers, and colors and with the coordinating Stamp set (Botanical Blooms Stamp Set) and the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies, this card comes together very easily. (Bundle all three and save 15% with 140819)
I chose to cover the Whisper White card base with a 2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of the Botanical Garden DSP and matched it with a 2 x 5 1/4 piece of Cajun Craze card stock atop a piece of Mossy Meadow Card Stock that measures 2 1/4 x 5 1/2. When I cut the DSP, the extra 1/2 inch was used to line the top and bottom of the strip, using the opposite side of the paper. Then it was time to get creative...I used the framelits to create multi-dimentional floweRs to place on top of the Cajun Craze paper along with some tropical leaves in Mossy Meadow that blended wondefully with the DSP. The flowers for the framelits were cut from Hello Honey and Cajun Craze card stock. The label that contained the Happy Birthday wish was hand cut and stamped in Mossy Meadow from the "Rose Wonder" stamp set. And that's it...a most beautiful and fun birthday card to send to someone in a not so tropical climate...enjoy!
