Quinceañera Card – Julie Nutting “Olive”

Hola everyone!  

Hope you had a great weekend!  It is Spring!!  My favorite season of the year.  The flowers are bluming, the birds are chirping… and I have a cute bird nest on one of my plants.  I love it!

My grandmother called me a couple of weeks ago, asking for one of “those gorgeous cards you make” for the girl who she used to care for from 2 months old until she went to pre-school.  She is now turning 15, and grandma wants a Quinceañera card for her.

I hit the Internet for inspiration, and then I remembered: I have some Julie Nutting stamps!!  I'll use my Julie Nutting stamps for this card.  I chose “Olive”:

I stamped “Feliz Cumpleaños” several times on the olive colored carstock (see the pun? “Olive” on olive paper…lol) and I stamped Olive in several papers, and pieced her back together with patterned paper for her dress, shoes and headband.

For the flowers and leaves, I got the cut files from here, and placed a white enamel dot on each one.

Hope you like my latest creation, and that it inspires you to create.

Peace and healthy days for you all!
