Birthday Botanicals

I have a fair few birthday cards to make in the coming weeks and thought I would share this one here with you today:-

I haven't tried paper-piercing for quite some time now, so out came the piercer AND needle and Metallic Silver Thread !!   So the card took a little longer than most, but I enjoyed stitching the pierced border.   It was actually quite therapeutic, as crafting should be.

I die cut some Botanical Blooms using the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and silver embossed the background leaves from Hopeful Thoughts and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set Cottage Greetings.

I finished off with a dry embossed edge and layered the 4 7/8"inch layer onto a piece of 5" x 10" inch Whisper White cardstock, which was scored at 5"inches using my Simply Scored board.

Thank you for stopping by today and I do hope you like today's little project.
