Materials Used -
Woodware Daisy punches
Brilliance inkpads - Victorian Violet, Mediterranean Blue, and Sky blue.
Crafts -Too Daisy embossing folder.
Nestabilities circles dies - Standard and Small sets
Fiskars border punch - Threading Water
Elusive Designs sentiment rubber stamps
Bling on a Budget gemstone swirls (I got mine from Craft Obsessions)
Rangers Glossy Accents glue.
First of all I cut all the panels for the card then ran them through my Cuttlebug with the embossing folder. Then using the Brilliance ink pads sponged the Daisies and edges.
The 21st center was cut out using a standard size nestablities circles die. I then cut out another standard circle then positioned the small die in the middle of this to get a frame. The number 21 was bought and the gemstone swirls were further embellished with some dark blue rhinestones from my stash.
The daisy flowers were made with Woodware daisy punches and the center of the flowers were coloured using a cotton bud and a Brilliance ink pad. The center of the flowers then had a generous blob of Rangers Glossy accents glue and left to dry for a couple of hours.
The happy birthday sentiment was gone over twice with a Sakura Gelly roll clear glaze pen.
The box center circle was hand cut and the frame was made the same way as the 21st centerpiece.
The acetate was embossed with the same embossing folder as the card.
The edge of the box border again has blobs of Glossy Accents in the holes.
The card is then held shut with some dark blue organza ribbon.
Not sure what my next card is going to be, maybe a double, double tri shutter card :oD Anyway until then ... Take care & keep smiling

This piture shows what I mean by lifting the petals. Do it one layer at a time until it looks like this..
Johanna didn't do leaves in her tutorial, so I'll show you how I made mine.

The roses I bought from a gorgeous new website Wild Orchid Crafts. They too were sprayed with the Glimmermist. The heart is made from 3mm Beech wood that I bought from Button-it when I went to a craft fair at the begining of the year. I haven't been able to fine these hearts on their website but I've no doubt if you emailed them they would be able to help. The heart was sponged with StazOn Metallic Gold and Copper ink and StazOn Timberbrown. The sentiment on the front is computer generated and embossed down the side with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder, and then inked with the same colour combination as the backing paper/card.
The heart in the insert was made using Nestabilities heart die and Cuttle bug embossing folder then hand stitched with gold thread. It was all then sponged with Brilliance inkpads Gold, Beige and Coral. The flourish was made with Sizzix Bigz die "Decorative accent with flower".
My "logo" on the back is hand stamped the other information (sentiments) is computer. generated.
Finally the box was decorated using Nestabilities square die and the embossed using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder and edged with gold peel offs.
I was going to make my own roses, but that would have taken to much time. But here's a picture of one I made a while back
