Have an Aster-nomical Birthday


The ready side fold card measures, 5 1/2” x 8”. Cut a decorative gate in white using Regal Lattice Gateway Die. Choose a teal color pattern paper from the designer paper collection to create the very first layer of the card front. Cut the paper measuring 5″ x 7 1/2″. Distress the edges using sharp scissors and layer them on the card front using foam tape. For the next layer, choose coordinating paper from the same paper collection and cut measuring 4 1/2″ x 7″. Distress the edges and mat it on the white cardstock making a white border of 1/16th” on all the sides. Layer it flat on the card front using foam dots.

Cut the decorative gate using Regal Lattice Gateway Die, once in Luxe Gold card-stock and once in white card-stock. Glue a golden die-cut, behind the white one to create little shadows. Layer the decorative frame on the card front using glue dots. Do the same with the center window. 

Wrap matching satin ribbon around the panel and secure the ends at the back using tacky tape. 

For Blue Asters, Stamp a couple of petals from Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set using French Ultramarine Archival Ink and cut them using its coordinating die. Color the petals using the same ink and shape them using golf groove tools. Create one large, 3 medium, and one small-sized Aster. Complete the flowers by adding the prills in the centers.

Stamp, cut, and color a few wisteria flowers using Bright Tangelo and shape them using a flower shaping kit. Add flower pollens using a glossy accent and use these flowers as fillers.

Stamp 2 sets of leaves using Leafy Accent stamp and Olive Green Archival ink and cut them using its coordinating die. Color the leaves using the same inks and shape them using a deluxe flower shaping kit.

Once all the elements are ready, make a small floral display using all flowers, fillers, and foliage. Complete the card by adding a stamped sentiment from Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp Set.
