Here's a Card, Flower and Field, Birthday Card, 2021 Stampin' Up!

I always laugh when I use the "Here's a Card" set and I put it in the title of my post. It's like announcing "here's a card" when it's actually a set called "Here's a Card".  So here's MY card! LOL

I had a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flower and Field" 12" x 12" 2021 Sale-a-Brations sitting on my worktable.  I'm slowing going through the piles of paper there and using them up.  

I thought it would be fun to use the "Medium Daisy" punch with this card since the images are daisy looking flowers.  I punched out two pieces and glued them together. Then I punched out a 3/8" Daffodil Delight circle and glued it to the center of the flower. I set this aside to dry.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White to the inside.

The DSP measures 4" x 5-1/4" and it was taped to the front of the card. 

Next I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White and used the "Curvy" die to cut the top and the bottom. 

I took the bottom part and stamped the words from the "Here's a Card" set using black Memento ink. Then I added Dimensionals to the top and bottom pieces and set them in place on top of the DSP.

The petals of the flower were curled using my bone folder. Hold the flower in the center and curl them like you would using curling ribbon except be a bit more gentle or you will rip the petals off. I sponged on a little Balmy Blue ink and set the flower in place using a Dimensional.

I used my dark Balmy Blue Blends pen and colored a few crystal rhinestones and set them in place on the front of the card.  And that was it.  

This is a very quick way to make a pretty card. It looks like a lot of time went into it when in fact it took linger to get all the stuff together to make it, including cutting the card stock.

I can see myself making more cards like this with some retired DSP. I should have left the words in my Stamparatus so I could crank out a few. I may set it up tomorrow and just stamp some fronts for another time when I run across more DSP laying around that I just can't seem to let go of.

Thank you SO much for taking your time to see todays card,
