Pansy Patch, Pansy Petals, Birthday Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I'm loving the "Pansy Patch" set and matching Designer Series Paper (DSP). I found this pretty card on Pinterest and I thought I'd give it a try. I don't know where the scalloped edge rectangle came from but I did know that I didn't have it, so I used what I had. You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the new "Fresh Freesia" card stock was used for the layer. I taped that piece to the front of the card.

Then I die cut the rectangle piece. I didn't have the scalloped rectangle die so this is what I found in my stash and I thought I'd just go with it and it worked. I used largest lacy rectangle die from the "Ornate Style" bundle.  

The words are from the "Pansy Patch" set and were stamped using Fresh Freesia ink. I set it up in my Stamparatus to stamp the words and I'm glad I did because I needed to stamp them twice to get them dark enough.  I didn't buy the stamps, I had bought the ink refills and empty cubes for the in colors. I don't use them often but sometimes it's nice to have them, so this was a more economical feasible way to do it. I may not have inked the cube enough but it's better to have not enough ink than too much (if you're using the Stamparatus).

I cut a 1-3/4" x 2" piece of DSP from the "Pansy Petals" 12" x 12" package. The original card had three small strips of the checked DSP, but I didn't want to mess with the cutting and lining up so I just made it one piece and moved on quicker. I taped the DSP to the front of the lacy rectangle.  

The flower was die cut from a sheet of the DSP and the leaves were die cut from a different piece of the DSP.  

The lacy piece was set in place using Dimensionals. Then the flower was set in place using Dimensionals. I didn't press it down because I needed to add some tape to the back of the leaves and slip them under the flower.  Then I could press the flower down.

This was a fun card to make and very pretty too. It's got such a soft sweet look to it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to pop in and see this sweet card,
