Powder Pink Birthday

Hello Stampers! This month the theme for my classes was Birthday cards. Many of the participants asked for more masculine ones or cards that would be suitable for anyone. I had to have just one fluff card and here it is. 🙂

I absolutely LOVE this Happy Birthday die – the font, the size – this die has it all. I used the new In Color Powder Pink and it was a big hit. 

I used the circle I cut out from the front for the sentiment on the inside. I used silver embossing powder. I love the Stitched Framelits, they give all the shapes that extra touch. I added some Fresh Fig flowers for contrast. I used the Washi Tape from Paper Pumpkin on the corner of the envelope.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment.

Friend Flip Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

Since today is the Fourth of July I’d like to wish you all a Happy Fourth! Shock…I do not have a red, white and blue card for you. 🙂 Instead, I have a little different twist on a greeting card. Got the inspiration from Dawn Griffith. She has so many great ideas so “why invent the wheel”!

Instead of the normal card this one has a single piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then you build from there.

I used the new In Color – Fresh Fig and the Fresh Florals DSP. Those new In Colors are great.

The Blushing Bride is adhered to the Fresh Fig and then there is a small fold in the DSP which adheres over the Blushing Bride. Whisper White is then centered with the back of the DSP onto the Blushing Bride. It’s quite different and I do like unique folds and cards.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Bunch of Blossoms

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Fresh Fig, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Laying Circles Framelits, White Satin Ribbon (R), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch

 

This is such a fun card to make and I can see it made with all the new In Colors. It would make a great gift set of Thank You cards in a cute little box!  Hmm…just might do that!

Here are the measurements I used:

Fresh Fig – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Blushing Bride – 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  DSP – 3 1/4″ x 6″, score on the 3 1/4″ side at

5 9/16″.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. Punch out a 1 3/4″ circle from Fresh Fig, and a 2″ circle from Silver Glimmer. Glue them together. (Might want to use your Fast Fuse especially on the Glimmer paper.)     Using the 2 1/8″ Circle Framelit cut out a circle in the DSP, then use that die and the 2 1/2″ Scallop die together to make the frame. Glue it together and add the ribbon and you’ve got an awesome card.

Give this card a try and send me a photo…I’ll highlight you as my guest stamper!
