Birthday Wishes

Here is a card I made for a coworker. Its a group card so its oversize (5"x10") to allow for about 12-16 signatures. I used my last Gusseted envelope matching the Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper, and tried out the popular Scallop Circle Punch Flowers.

The sentiment on the front of the envelope and the card, as well as the stamping inside is from the Watercolor Trio set, I am loving this new set :-) I added a bit of layering inside with the "Birthday Wishes" and some flower power stamped and punched on the Sahara Sand card stock. I also continued using the Scallop Trim border punch to accent the inside signature area.
I CASEd Blythe Klipples card from her nice tutorial here and modified it so that it would work in my oversize format. I used two sizes of the Scallop Punch, since we have the new larger size! These flowers are kind of a shabby-chic style, and work well with a little distressed-edge, casual style. The only addition I would make to her tutorial is a photo of the folding, here's mine below; and the note to "Fluff" your flowers and spin the layers a bit to offset the folds and give it a nice full look.

I hope my friend has a wonderful birthday!!!
