Olive Birthday Card

Hello all!  I know what you are thinking...olives?  REALLY?!  Yes, I couldn't believe I made a card covered in olives either.  I do not like them at all, but this was for a co-worker who loves olives and we had one night at work where her olives were instrumental in us getting through a very interesting night.  So, olives it is!
I used Echo Park's 6x6 Getaway paper pad for this card.  I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to go around the edges of the olives and the white printed layer.  For the olives I simply cut ovals that were 1.5"x1.125" out of the green and 0.5" circles of the red.
The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The bow is Totally Black Trendy Twine.
Other products I used on this card are GMD Stitched Rectangle dies, ATG, Scotch foam tape, and Scotch Tacky Glue.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

  1. What a stunning card; I bet the story behind it is great! How thoughtful. The olives are so creative. Best, CG

  2. Hahaha... That's so funny... that you don't like olives.. :) I LOVE them! They're so Tasty! :) Your card is super Fun & Whimsical! I also like the fact that you created the olives with just a couple of simple dies/punches.. that any crafter would have in their stash already! Very Creative! :) Have a great day!


  3. What a fun story! I love that there's actually a story behind your card! The papers are really cute and that sentiment is so awesome! I love the way your card came together!
