Painted Seasons, Southern Serenade, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Brations

You are not going to believe this!  I needed a sympathy card and I was going to make one but I just couldn't get myself to do it.  But I did have one in my stash that I am using.  Yes, I actually am using a card in my stash. I hope you were sitting down for that!!! LOL

I had taken out the "Painted Seasons" Sale-a-Brations set.  I have not played with this one much.  It became available on March 1st and by the time it arrives you only have about 20 days to play with it.  And with me, in those 20 days I've already forgot I have it!!!  UGH!  

So today I thought I would play with it since it is retiring in 2 days.  I may make another card using it tomorrow.  It's a fun and easy set to use.  I LOVE the pine cone in it but that just seems like a fall image. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pool Party card stock.  This card opens on the right.  On top of the card base is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I cut a 5" x 1-7/8" piece of the "Painted Seasons" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I taped it to a 5-1/8" x 2" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock.

The image was stamped on a piece of 2-1/4" x 3" piece of Whisper White card stock using Pool Party ink.  And the words are from the "Southern Serenade" set and were stamped using Shaded Spruce ink.  I taped that to a 2-3/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Pool Party card stock.  I tied a piece of white Baker's Twine around the panel.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it. It's a very quick and easy card to make.  It may have been a good sympathy card but I didn't have any words that would fit in that small area.

I forgot to add, I colored the image in using a Wink of Stella pen.  It's difficult to see in the photo.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

Love this pretty card. It makes a great birthday card. Glad you found a card in your stash to use. I always think it is fun to just pull a card from my stash that works for the occasion. I usually like to make it specific to the person. Have a great weekend.
