Primary Colors for Birthday cards

For the Card Positioning Systems blog this week, the team played with some DRS Designs stamps. For both cards that I posted today, I paired some great, primary colored papers. I picked out this totally great verse for a belated birthday card, the flower stamp and the leaf stamp. HELLO! How many of us are late with a birthday card and isn't this just the cutest?
I just love this flower and the leaf. I did emboss both of them with clear embossing powder since that makes the color more intense. I added a punched out tiny flower to the middle of the stamped flower and added a self adhesive pearl to that.
These papers were already out on my scrapping table, so I paired them again for a quick and easy card for a child, probably a boy. I lightly drew the number on the red striped paper and then hand cut it out.
I always think this border punch is a great look for a "boy" project, notice the embossed part to it that is made more pronounced by sanding the Core'dinations cardstock.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
