Once again I've used the same stamp (Stampin' Up's Herb Expressions) and stamped it on ivory cardstock and then added Flower Soft product to the blooms. This card is a very simple card and I wanted to bring out a little 3-D by attaching a bouquet of faux lavender tied in a dotted lavender colored ribbon.
To make the lavender bouquet I just cut three 3 inch pieces of wire and covered the end of the wire about 3/4 of an inch up the wire with glue and then rolled the glue-y end of the wire in lavender flowersoft and let it dry. In order to keep the wires standing upright while they dry I poked the wire ends into a dry sponge and let that sit on the table to dry.
To carry out the inside of the card with more lavender and the birthday greeting I used this sweet vine border. It is one of the stamps in the Stampin' Up! Long Time Friend set. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Stampin' Up!
I used my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder on the outside of the card and also punched a eyelet scalloped border with a Martha Stewart border punch.
And this completes my lavender gift set.
