Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Catalog

I almost forgot to post tonight.  I thought I had already set this up to post but when I looked, there was nothing.  I didn't even have a card ready to post.  So I went into my Pinterest saved images and found this fun card.  I LOVE the looks of this.  It's super simple to make too. You can see the original card here.  

The base of this card is a folded 11" 4-1/4" piece of card stock.  This card is folded at the top and opens from the bottom.  

I die cut the "Happy Birthday" from the "Happy Birthday" thinlits die using Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  I used the double sided sticky sheets to the back of the card stock so I could just remove the backing and stick it directly to the card stock.  That piece of card stock it's stuck to is a 4-1/4" x 3-1/8" piece of Whisper White.  Behind that is a piece of 4-1/4" x 3-3/8" piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  I taped those layers together.

Next I set those layers on top of the front of the card but I did not tape them in place yet.  I wanted to see where the flowers needed to go.  I stamped the little flowers from the "Happy Birthday,Gorgeous" set. I used Sweet Sugarplum ink for the solid part of the flower and Berry Burst for the outline.  The outline of the leaves were stamped using Wild Wasabi ink.  I ended up coloring them in with the Wild Wasabi marker.  The original card showed them with just the outline but once I got mine stamped, I thought it should be colored.  

After my coloring I taped that front focal panel layer in place.  Then I added some green "Glitter Enamel Dots" to the card.  I added some pearls to the center of each flower and I also added some "Wink of Stella" to the card.  I went over the Happy Birthday words and the center lines of each leaf and the center lines of the flowers.  I think if you click on the photo you can see the shimmer of the "Wink of Stella."  

It was a very fun and easy card to make.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
