As you may have noticed from my last Blog post, I have been learning to participate in a Blog Hop. I think I finally have it working if you would like to check it out. After you scroll through my portion there will be a list of names. Click on the name and visit their Blog. You can get a lot of great ideas from a Blog Hop.
Today’s card is a Birthday card. I have 6 people in my family with Birthdays in May! I need to stock up on Birthday cards. This card can be made with any Designer Series Paper (DSP). I am using Garden Lane DSP from the 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.
I made this card with the Layered With Kindness stamp set by Stampin’ Up!® and the coordinating punch.
Measurements: Garden Green Card stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches, 8 1/2 x 3 inches and 5 x 3 inches; Garden Lane DSP: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 3 inches; and Whisper White CS: 4 x 3 inches and 5 x 3 inches.
The first step is to stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Memento onto the 5 x 3 inch Whisper White CS. Set aside.
Stamp the leaves in Garden Green ink onto the right hand side of the 4 x 3 inch Whisper White CS.
Now stamp the little flower in Petal Pink ink.
Stamp several flowers.
Stamp the single leaf several times in Garden Green ink.
Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Garden Lane DSP to the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Garden Green CS.
Fold the 8 1/2 x 3 inch Garden Green in half at 4 1/4 inches and use the Bone Folder to make the fold nice and crisp.
Adhere the 4 x 3 inch Garden Lane DSP to the front of the folded Garden Green CS.
The floral card piece will go inside the folded Garden Green CS piece.
Adhere the floral card piece.
Adhere the back of the Garden Green folded card piece to the front of the Garden Lane DSP on the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch piece of Garden Green CS.
Use the Label Me Lovely punch to cut out the “Happy Birthday” sentiment and then punch another label out of the 5 x 3 inch Garden Green CS.
Adhere the two labels together with the Garden Green label slightly to the right of the “Happy Birthday” label.
Adhere some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the “Happy Birthday” label on the half behind the “H” and the “B”.
Adhere to the card front with the right edge hanging off a little.
Now for some Bling! I used the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and applied them with the Take Your Pick tool.
Slide the pick under the adhesive on the rhinestone and transfer it to where you want it on the card. Apply slight pressure to the rhinestone and slide the pick out from underneath. Tip: If you do not have a pick tool, try a toothpick.
Add as many rhinestones as you like, keeping with an odd number. An odd number is more pleasing to the eye.
And Viola! You have a really nice Birthday Card that folds in a new and fun way. (This type of card is called a Fun Fold or Fancy Fold).
I am so glad you joined me today. This is a great card to use any designed paper you may have around. You can easily substitute another sentiment, and if you do not have any punches, just make the sentiment a square. I am going to make a few more in different colors so I can get them mailed out to my family soon!
