A birthday card

It was just my aunts birthday, so I wanted to make her a card and this is what I came up with. I got the idea for this card from the user Beate on the Splitcoast Stampers webside. Although my card and hers is slightly different, I guess you can say I "CASEd" her card, so click here to see her original.

Supplies used:

Paper: Bazill cardstock

Stamps: HCPC 3324 Daisy Patch Swirls PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations and  "Gratulerer Drodle" from Kreativ Hobby on the front. The Daisy Patch Swirls stamp was stamped with Tsukineko Memento "Rich Cocoa" ink and colored with promarkers. The sentiment was stamped with Ranger distress Embossing Ink, and I then added  Stampendous "Jeweled Gold" embossing powder and heated it up. On the inside you see "Amy R Butterflies" from All That Scraps (Discontinued) and "Tea Rose Background" from Flourishes (discontinued). The butterflies were also stamped with "Rich Cocoa", and the Tee Rose Background was heat embossed like the sentiment on the front. Sadly I don't remember where I got the little bugs and the sentiment stamped on the inside. I also added some distressing to the card with Ranger "Vintage Photo" distress ink. I also used Inka Gold "Cobalt Blue".

Dies: Spellbinders Nested Hearts

Punches: Martha Stewart Double Loops Punch Around the Page Set

Embellishments: Flowers from Kort & Godt.

On the inside there's room for a little message:
