Splendid Swirls And Leane Flowers. Spring Birthday Card.

Hello Bloggers,

Here is my spring colored card today with lots of flowers, embossing and swirls. It's a birthday card for an old lady from Russia. The sentiment is in Russian and it says Happy Birthday. I don't have any Cyrillic letters, so I had to hand write it with a glue pen and use some glitter.
What makes a card almost totally unsendable? The spiral swirls of course! They are even more unsendable than fluffy flowers. So, in my wisdom I used the swirls from the Sue Wilson's Splendid Swirls CED1427 set anyway just because I liked them on the card so much and later spent a lot of time trying to fit them into the envelope in such a way that they stay intact. Quite successfully though! :)
This card is very big - it's a full A4 folded in halves. With all the layers and flowers, it turned out to be too heavy for a regular two-stamp letter, so I had to cheat a bit by creating the visibility of layers out of two sheets only. The outer green frame is literally a 1.5 cm wide frame, the middle cut-out part was embossed separately and used as the main green background. The white sheet in between them is not complete either. A non-crafter will never know :)

Veel Liefs. With Love Birthday Card.

Crealies Flowers 03, 21.
This card was the WINNER OF THE ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE # 310. And it made it to Top 3 at Dies R Us #46 - Use Scallops

Hello Bloggers,
Today's card is Veel Liefs (With Love) with Crealies flowers 3D. Somehow, if you look at the samples made by the Crealies design team themselves, you won't see many 3D flowers really. They prefer flat designs. I really like some dimension on my cards, so there they are, the flowers:
