Tattered Floral Birthday Card Using Gift Wrap

Remember a while back when I wrote about some lovely books of gift wrap that I received from my friend Ruth?  Well, I was asked by a co-worker to make Ruth a birthday card for her.  Ruth loved the gift wraps, and knew I would get use from them, so I thought: what better way to use them than make her a card? I remembered her favorite pattern from the book, so that was the one I used.

Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin' Up
Paper: Gina K Designs
Ink: Archival
Misc.: Tattered Floral Die, Circle Punch, Button, Gift Wrap

I attached a piece of the floral gift wrap to a piece of card stock and then die cut it.  This gives the piece some weight and made it sturdy.

The leaves were made by cutting out them out using a circle punch and scoring and folding.

Wishing Ruth a very Happy Birthday!  She brings a lot of sunshine to those who know her!
