A Fabulous Florets Birthday Card Stampin' Up!

Let's talk about versatility here.  The word stamp here is from the "Delightful Dozen" set and it can not only be used for a mom's birthday card but for a Mother's Day card as well!  

I do like how the card turned out but after looking at it more I realized that I should not have made that focal piece the part that opens on the card.  I should have made the card the way it looks in the photo, all that you see being the front of the card.  In reality the dotted paper part is the inside of the card.  So yes, that means you have to write over the dots.  But on the brighter side of wrigint over the dots, that means that your words would be straight! LOL  

The base of this card is a half a sheet of Rose Red cardstock cut in half on the short side.  Then it is folded in half on the long side.  Then you cut off half of the front panel (2-3/4").  That piece you cut off is turned sideways and used on the front of the card for the focal part.  It's a fun fold but it doesn't leave you much room to write.  

The flower is from the "Fabulous Florets" set. A set I have used a LOT!  And still plan on using a lot more!  

It was a fun and easy card to make and like I said, the next one I make using that layout will not open like this one does, it will open "normally!"  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
