Petal Palette, We Must Celebrate, Birthday Card

Here's a fun and quick card to make.  I was surprised at how quickly it was to make without having anything pre-cut for me.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a piece of  "Petal Passion" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I cut the DSP 1-1/2" x 5".  I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry 2" x 4-1/4".  There is about 1-5/8" of it exposed. I taped the card stock to the DSP and then I taped them both to the card base about 1/4" from the left fold of the card.

Next I stamped the flower and die cut it. I also die cut the branch looking image using Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Why not cut more than one thing at a time. It will save on your Big Shot and on your arm!  Plus when you are in a pinch for a card there might be some pieces you can quickly grab and whip up a card!  It could happen!!! LOL

I colored the flowers using Rich Razzleberry Blends.  I used the Old Olive Blends for the leaves.  I slipped the branch image under the DSP a little to hide the bottom stems and I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals. 

The words are from the "We Must Celebrate" set, I used black Memento ink to stamp them.  I LOVE that font.  I was going to say that I will be sorry when it retires at the end of the month but the "happy birthday" in the set that is replacing the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set is just as nice. I will adjust!! LOL

That was it.  A pretty quick card from start to finish!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Pretty card today. Great color combo and font for the sentiment. I'll have to remember to pull out the We Must Celebrate to use that happy birthday. Love your easy to follow directions. Enjoy your weekend.
