A formal bunch of flowers in green and blue


For this flowery birthday card I used another variety of the stickers my ex-colleagues gave me. The challengingly formal shapes which I mounted on a piece of white textured wallpaper give it a clean and simple look, ideal for a man's card. Cutting out an even circle was a quick job for my compass circle cutting tool - I should take it out more often.

The fresh green background colour contributes to a modern feel.

I made my own embellishment by mounting some of the stickers on top of each other and glueing a sequin on top. My tip for those of you who want to do something similar is to use a glue gun instead of crafting glue so you can be sure it stays on the card.
