A Teeny Tiny Wishes and English Garden Birthday Card

Sandi at Stamping with Sandi has a beautiful card posted on her blog.  You can see it here.   She had used the gold doilies on her card.  I didn't have any so I took a white one, folded it in half so it wasn't so transparent and I sponged the edges using Mossy meadow. 

The flower on the doily is fussy cut from a piece of the English Garden decorative paper. I am not a big fan of fussy cutting but today I didn't mind because I was anxious to make this card.  I did wish I had all the stuff to duplicate Sandi's card but then again, it does teach me to learn to work with what I have.  

To make this card you take a half sheet of Delightful Dijon card stock that is cut on the short side.  Fold it in half.  Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4" x 5-1/4".  Cut a piece of the decorative paper 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  Cut off the bottom of the decorative paper at about 1-1/4" and turn over.  My piece was cut from a 6" piece because I always cut my decorative paper 6" x 6".  So the bottom of my piece was longer so I was able to tape the bottom to the top easily.  

I taped the doily in place, added the ribbon (taping the edges of the ribbon onto the back side and then taping that piece to the Whisper White piece.  Then those two pieces were taped to the Delightful Dijon piece.  

The flower was set in place using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set.  The layer behind it was created using the "Decorative Label" punch.  I miss the "Modern Label" punch.  But I was able to make a narrow label that was cute enough for the card.  I set the label piece in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it!!!  Super easy, very little stamping, and a pretty card too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
