A Grunge Rose Birthday Card

On Friday I received my much anticipated order from Ellen Hutson.  Inside the package (which in retrospect I should have taken a photograph of, if I was going to mention in on the blog don't 'cha know), was some delicious new papers from Pink Paislee and Prima Marketing that I just couldn't wait to use to create a couple of cards.  Today I am featuring Pink Paislee's "Sweetness" papers that you can purchase right here. And are they ever sweet too! I also ordered some beautiful Zva Creative packages of bling and a few other fun things that, while I didn't use on this card today, I'm sure they will show up in some projects here in the near future!


  1. Cut card base from Fine Linen Cardstock (finished size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2)
  2. Cut one piece of patterned paper to 4 x 2 1/2
  3. Cut another piece of coordinating patterned paper to 4 x 3
  4. Overlap patterned papers and adhere together to create one 4 x 5 card front.
  5. Adhere ribbon on overlap
  6. Adhere card front to card base.
  7. Die Cut leaves from Ripe Avocado and emboss.
  8. Die Cut three flowers at 2 1/2 inches from Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge (On the overlay: 4th Row, 2nd White Key w shift selected).
  9. Apply thin coat of Mod Podge to flowers and create bloom using Tim Holtz Grunge Rose Technique.
  10. Cut one 3/4 inch x 2 1/2 inch piece of Fine Linen cardstock and stamp sentiment on center.
  11. Adhere Zva Creative Crystal to card front.
  12. Adhere leaves, sentiment and flower using Pop Dots.
