Simple Card ~ Birthday Celebrations

I needed a quick birthday card for a friend and thought this was a great, simple layout! I started with Bermuda Bay textured cardstock, stamped circles from the Circle Circus set (pg. 129) randomly throughout the center of the card. I like to 'stamp off' the page so that the images look like they are flowing on and off the page! Then I cut out the large Certainly Celery flower with my Big Shot and layered a chipboard circle, and Rich Razzleberry circle in the center of the flower - then adhered it all to the card! The trick to getting the Rhinestone brad through the center of flower (yes, I added the brad last) was the Paper-Piercing tool! It went through, yes (4) sheets of cardstock AND a piece of chipboard! Pretty amazing! Then I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Grosgrain ribbon around the bottom edge (for some color) and adhered it with a Silver Brad. The stamping on the card was all done with Bermuda Bay ink for a tone-on-tone look. You can also achieve this look with the VersaMark Pad (pg. 190) if you're wanting your ink color to match your cardstock color!
