Colorful Season, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up Catalog 2017-2018

Here's a simple yet colorful card to make.  It wasn't my original plan for the flowers. The flower dies from the "Colorful Season" set has 3 different flowers to stamp and die cut out.  I stamped all three in three different colors, making 4 of each.  I die cut them all.  My plan was to make a horizontal row of flowers but as I was laying them out I couldn't stop it from looking awkward and out of place.  So I gathered up all of the flowers and put them in a container.  I had a few sitting out and as I was looking at them, I thought that a card with just three flowers might work.  So I changed the orientation of the flowers and this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  Next is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Rich Razzleberry.  And on top of that is a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Whisper White.

I had stamped the flowers from the "Colorful Season" set using Rich Razzleberry, Berry Burst, and Sweet Sugarplum ink.  They were die and then set in place using a Dimensional.  Before I removed the protective backing on the Dimensionals, I set them in place and stamped the words.  The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set and I used Rich Razzleberry ink.  For the center of the flowers I used the yellow new "Glitter Enamel Dots". And that was it!  Very simple and quick to make too.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
