Wonderful Moments, Magnolia Lane, Birthday Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I have used this layout many times. I found a pretty card on Pinterest and I thought I would give it a try because I had some scraps to use up. You can see the original card here.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Petal Pink card stock. 

The top layer is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock that was textued using the "Tufted" 3D embossing folder.  The piece was taped to the card base.

I cut three pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Magnolia Lane" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I cut these squares at 2" x 2". 

I cut the Basic Black layers at 2-1/8" x 2-1/8".  I taped the DSP to the Basic Black layers.  It's when I saw that the squares were too large.  I think they should have been cut 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" and the Basic Black layer should be cut at 1-7/8" x 1-7/8".  Or even cutting the DSP at 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and 1-5/8" x 1-5/8" for the Basic Black layers.  But this is what it is and it's okay.  If you don't look at the original card you will never know!!!  No peeking!!! LOL

I taped the squares to the textured piece.  I have some Washi tape that is a ruler that is taped across my worktable and I just lined up the card so I could find the center and that's where I started one corner.  I turned the card so I could find the center on the other end I set that piece in place. Then I taped the center square in place.  

I fussy cut a flower from the same DSP and I taped it in place.  That is actually when it dawned on me that the squares were too big.  

The words are from the "Wonderful Moments" set using black Memento ink to stamp them on the Whisper White card stock. 

I die cut the words with the smallest Stitched oval die.  And I die cut a Basic Black scalloped oval for the layer behind the words.  I taped those two pieces together and I set them on top of the card using Dimensionals.

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

I do like the look of the card and other than the fussy cut flower being a little small, the card looks good to me.  All in all it was a fun card to make and I REALLY do like this layout. 

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