Another of my friends is having a 65th birthday and I thought I would use a couple of Suzanne newest digital files "Flourished Happy Birthday" and "Flourished 65" and I paired it up with the "Sunflowers" all of them available on the Silhouette onLine store.
This is what the files look like:
I opened the "Happy Birthday" Silhouette file in Sure Cuts A Lot software . Ungrouped the words and hid the word "Birthday". Opened the "Flourished 65" and moved it into a pleasing arrangement with the Happy., selected all and enlarged it to about 4.75" square. Welded everything and cut from cream toned cardstock. Inked it with Versamark and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. Also cut a shadow layer and painted it with Distress acrylic dauber "Walnut Stain". Adhered both together.
Opened the "sunflower", adding another flower image, cut from the cream toned cardstock. Painted with the acrylic daubers "Mustard Seed" for the flower, Walnut Stain for the flower center and "Mowed Lawn" for the leaves and stem. assembled the flowers and added glue to the centers adhering some "Nut Brown" Flower Soft .
Side folded my forest green toned Bazzill Monochromatic card. Adhered a piece of dark green/gold variegated ribbon, then my word and flower elements,
On the inside: Stamped the quote ("How Old Would You Be...") using Distress Picket Fence and embossing with Emerald Creek "Glacier White" embossing powder.
Masked the quote and stamped the daisy/sunflower (Stampendous "Jumbo Daisy") using Archival "Saffron" and embossing with a bright yellow embossing powder. Added color using Prisma colored pencils in a yellow and orange.
