Birthday Bouquet

I have a great card for you today using a beautiful bouquet of Spring flowers!

I am still limited by the recent joint replacement in my middle finger which is still healing. I cannot drive which is the worst thing. I can craft though! i just have to keep it simple.

Measurements: Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base; Highland Heather 5 x 3 inches, and Whisper White 4 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches.

You will need several colors of ink for all the flowers. I used Stampin’ Up! Powder Pink, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green and Memento ink.

If you were looking to buy just one stamp set to get started stamping, Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful Bouquet would be it. Not only is there a multitude of flower arrangements you can create, but there are many useful sentiments for birthday, congratulations, wedding, anniversary and thank you – all the great reasons to send a special card. It is just so wonderful to receive a handmade card from someone!

Let’s get started! The first step in creating this beautiful bouquet is to stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green ink slightly off center to the left.

I used the Highland Heather ink with one of the larger flowers. Remember that using an odd number of an image looks more appealing than an even number.

The lilies are done in So Saffron ink.

I added five of the smaller flowers in Powder Pink ink.

I used Gorgeous Grape ink for the center of the larger flowers.

The center of the lily is done in Memento ink.

I used the single leaf and Granny Apple Green ink to round out the bouquet.

Use the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Highland Heather to stamp in the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card base.

Adhere the bouquet onto the piece of Highland Heather, then onto the card base.

Well, Sale-a-bration is over, but a great variety of products is available both in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and the 2018-19 Annual Catalog. These catalogs are good until June 3, 2019. Select the shop button above to look through the catalogs.

Hope you enjoyed this Springtime card! See you again soon!
