Five-Way Flower Fun Birthday Card

I am really enjoying this one single Five-Way Flower stamp.  Just make sure you have all of the scalloped punches before you begin this project or you will be spending a lot of time cutting.  Because of the punches, this card goes together SO quickly.  I think I will hunt around for the "perfect" card layout to use with this flower and make a set of them for a gift. Giving sets of cards for gifts is fun, the one who gets them LOVES them and it's fun making them and giving them!  Win win!!

Today my flower card comes to you from Katies "Stamp Ladie Katie" blog.  I don't think I've ever been to her blog before.  It was fun to look around.  When I saw this card I immediately thought of the Five-Way Flower set.  The flower in her card is from the Mixed Bunch set.  But the size was close enough and the Five-Way Flower came to mind so that is what I ran with.

I used the new in color Pistachio Pudding decorative paper for my background paper and Marina Mist for my ink on the flower.  I stamped my flowers and punched away.  You really only need to stamp 3 flowers.  Punch out the parts needed from each flower and layer them.  No one will see that the center of the base flower is not there!  I looked under my flower layers and couldn't tell and I knew what I was looking for.  Besides if people are looking under your flowers on your card then next time they get a store bought one!!! LOL

The words are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  Such a fun set!

For my decorative paper, the pieces are 1-1/4" x 1-1/4". Katie used a punch for hers.  I didn't want to waste the decorative paper so I cut it on the paper cutter, it didn't take long at all.  It was only four pieces for pitty sake!  My corner rounder is a retired one that doesn't round much of the corner so I used my 3/4" circle punch, turned it upside down and I slipped the corner of my paper inside the punch and punched the edge off.  Easy Peasy!  

I set my flower layers in place using Dimensionals and I added a green Candy Dot to the center and I called it done!!!  As simple and quick as that!

This would make a very fun Stamp A Stack project!!! And a  fun Make N Take too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
