A Betsy's Blossoms Birthday Stampin' Up!

The blog is doing something weird right now but at least I can finish my post, so I'm just going to let it do what it wants!!!  LOL

Today I found a card on Pinterest that I had pinned a few days ago. I thought it looked like a fun card to make so I made my version of it.  You can see the original card here.   I made my card using Whisper White and the soon to be retiring Regal Rose.  I thought I'd use that color since I had a few sheets left.  It would be great to use them up instead of have them hanging around because they retired before I got to them all.  I did make a One Sheet Wonder using the Betsy's Blossom images.  A One Sheet Wonder is when you stamp all over a piece of card stock and use the sheet as your focal point or for backgrounds.  You cut pieces off it as you need.  They're fun to do and you can make a LOT of cards from one sheet.

I took the two images, the 3 flowers and the larger flower and stuck them to an acrylic block and stamped them all at once.  Another advantage of having clear mount stamps.  

For the butterfly I used the Sizzlet and the Regal Rose decorative paper.  I just set it in place with a dot of glue.  That particular piece was too hard to tape so glue worked better here.

The main panel is set in place using Dimensionals and so is the word piece.  And the scalloped border punch was used for the Regal Rose side piece.  

The "happy birthday" came from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  And that was it.  SO simple, so quick and very pretty!  FYI, my Regal Rose piece was cut at 3-1/4" x 4-1/2".  

Making cards like this goes quickly and you can whip up quite a few in a short time.  You can make these cards into a fun pack for a gift.  Use different colors for a pretty effect.  

WOW, when I justified the words the post began to look more normal. Let's hope it looks like that when I hit "publish"!  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
