Varied Vases, Gallery Grunge, Birthday Card, 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Today I added some "Gallery Grunge" to the "Varied Vases" set.  I used the muted dots in the "Gallery Grunge" set on the background of this card. I think it gave the card a nicer look than just a plain white background.  This was a very fun and easy card to make.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo.  And on top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White.  

I die cut an oval using the stitched ovals. I die cut a Smoky Slate stitched oval. I used the largest one in the set for that.  And I die cut a Whisper White scalloped oval for the layer behind the Smoky Slate stitched oval.  It doesn't show up well on here but in person it looks REALLY nice and a bit elegant!

I stamped the vase using Smoky Slate ink and I punched it out.  I stamped the flower on the Whisper White oval using Garden Green ink. Then I stamped the flower petals image using Melon Mambo ink.  I set the vase in place using Dimensionals.

I taped the oval layers together and added Dimensionals to the back, but I didn't set it in place yet. I needed to stamp the scalloped edge image first. I did that using Melon Mambo ink. Next I stamped the "Gallery Grunge" muted dots. I used Smoky Slate ink and stamped off once before stamping it on the background.  Then I added a piece of the Whisper White "Sheer 1/8" Ribbon" and taped the ends on the back.  Then I stamped the words using black Memento ink.  

I taped large layers together and then I set the oval in place.  This was a very fun card to make and I didn't think it took my time at all to create.  I am SO loving the gray with the Melon Mambo!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
