Birthday Bonanza, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up! 2020 Spring Catalog

As I was looking through a pile of card stock and other stuff on my worktable, I ran across a packet of card stock and Designer Series Paper (DSP) and I thought I would make a card with them.  That was what they were intended for, I just never seem to get around to making cards with them.  But today I thought I would take one pack and make a card.  And this is what I came up with.

I took the 1/2 sheet of Purple Posy card stock.  It was fun to play with because it's very pretty. It's such a soft looking purple and I didn't buy any because it's an in color and I just don't have the funds to put into that.

The pack also has some DSP.  This DSP is from the "Best Dressed" 6" x 6" paper stack.  The DSP was cut 2" x 5-1/2".  I cut off 1/4" off the end so my piece measured 2" x 5".  

I cut a 2-1/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock to make a layer for the DSP.  I taped those two pieces together and I taped that to the front of the card.

I die cut a Rich Razzleberry using the "Stitched So Sweetly" dies.  These dies are SO fun. There's 6 scalloped rectangle ones and 4 of the different shaped ones. This is the second size of one of the different shaped ones.  All of the 4 are different shapes and sizes. 

I stamped the words from the "Bonanza Buddies" set using Rich Razzleberry ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.  I die cut it using the second smallest "Stitched Circle" die.  I had to stamp this twice because the Rich Razzleberry ink didn't dry very well.  So I heat set the second one and made sure it was dry. I taped the circle to the Razzleberry die cut piece.

The packet also had the dotted ribbon in it, I cut the ends and folded it in the middle and taped it to the front of the card.  

I added Dimensionals to the die cut piece and set it in place on top of the card. 

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card and the card was done.

It's a nice clean looking card.  Plus it was super easy and a great way to use up some of those strips of card stock.  This is one of the layouts I seem to use a lot anyway.  It's easy enough and at times you don't want to use up all of your DSP, so you can use a small piece of it on a card like this.   It was a fun cad to make!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
