While I had my fern stamp out, I also made this clean and simple birthday card.
After stamping the fern on a white cardfront, I also stamped the SU Happy Birthday on off-white cs with the same Olive Green Colorbox chalk ink. Next, I used a Nestie scalloped square to cut and emboss the greeting and "rolled" it on the ink pad to give it a shadowed effect against the white. Then I attached it with a few dimensionals.
For embellishments, I used a Hero Arts flower overlapping the fern and greeting. Using a Hero Arts small flower stamp, I added a circle punched from a piece of olive green cs scrap and added the three gold beads for a little glimmer.
This actually sounds more complicated than it was to make!
