Love What You Do, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, 2018 - 2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog

"Love What You Do" was one of the first sets I saw appear on the internet when the pre-order came out. I LOVED what I saw and knew I was going to have that set.  I did get the set (obviously) and I have played with it a lot. I find it fun to color, especially these flowers. I have not played with the smaller flowers on a stem yet. I think I should give that a try before I put this set away.  Today I played with the leaf, an image I hadn't tried yet!

I found this card on Pinterest. I did change the words and the background color of the tiny flowers. I think the on the original card the color is Grapefruit Grove. I did not buy the in-colors this time around. It was just not in my budget.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut it on the 8-1/2" side.  This card is folded at the top and opens from the bottom.

I cut a 2" x 4-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock and a 1-7/8" x 4-1/4" piece of the "Share What You Love" Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP).  I taped those two pieces together.

I stamped the flower and I stamped the little flowers around it. Those were stamped using Mango Melody stamped off once.  The leaves were stamped using Old Olive ink.  I die cut the flower image using the second largest stitched oval die.  Then I die cut a Basic Black scalloped oval to fit the stitched oval. I taped those two layers together. 

The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set. I stamped them using black Memento ink.  

I set the ovals in place using Dimensionals but keep them away from the top and the bottom so your oval doesn't lay funny.   And that as it.  It's a super quick and easy card to make.  Oh and I thought it was a fun card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
