Beautiful Friendship, Birthday Card, 2010-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Today's card reminds me of the flat stamped cards from years ago.  Before the punches and dies became popular (or in my case, necessary).

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Flirty Flamingo card stock.  This card opens at the bottom and the fold is at the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock and taped it to the card base.  And I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock to stamp on.

I stamped the double roses in the image from the "Beautiful Friendship" set using Flirty Flamingo ink.  I moved the image up a bit on the piece to make room for the smaller flower. I stamped the other flower using Flirty Flamingo ink as well. 

I set the leaves in place around the image and I stamped them using Old Olive ink.  I moved the leaves and stamped them again on the flowers.

The words are from the same set and I used black Memento ink to stamp them.

This was a very easy and quick card to make.  I forgot how quick you could make a card with flat stamping.  I still prefer all the punches and dies.  I LOVE layering.  I could have layered here but then that would mean "FUSSY CUTTING"  UGH!!! NO!!!  I'm not a big fan of fussy cutting, can you tell?  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
