Vintage Linens Happy Birthday Card

Hi there!  With all the new releases from Papertrey Ink, Altenew, and Hero Arts, I've been purchasing quite a few new sets that I still have yet to play with!  When they all came in, it was quite overwhelming, especially trying to figure out where to start first so I decided to hold off for a bit.  So today I went into my already owned stash of stamps. I pulled out an old set I have from Papertrey Ink.   Once in a while, I like to revisit the wonderful sets I already own.  Today I'm playing with Vintage Linens Stamp Set.  I love the beautiful flowers in the set and the leaves are gorgeous.

My card for today:

I used a Soft Stone cardstock measuring 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I cut a piece of pattern paper from My Mind's Eye paper pad and adhered that in the middle of the cardstock. Then I used the Doily Details Die B to die cut a piece of white cardstock and blended it with Stampin' Up Rose Red ink.  I stamped the sentiment, "Happy Birthday" from Stampin' Up Well Scripted Stamp Set on white cardstock.  This is one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets because I love the elegance of the curly letters.  I used my 1 3/4 circle punch to punch out the sentiment and then blended the edges with Distress Oxide Ink in Fossilized Amber. I adhered it to the middle of the doily.  This was placed in the middle of the pattern paper.  The flowers were stamped in different colored inks with the edges in a darker color than the center. I die cut them and heat embossed them in clear embossing powder. I stamped several leaf images in Going Gray ink  and die cut them as well.  Next I assembled flowers and leaves onto the Soft Stone cardstock, placing them around the doily and sentiment.  When done, I placed it onto a white card stock base. I love the colors on this card.
