Flowering Fields, Sweet Ice Cream, Birthday Card

I have some Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowering Fields" package that I was struggling with. I'm still struggling with half of it but I was able to come up with something for a card with the bottom half. The DSP images came from the upper left corner and got larger as it went across the page. I didn't know how to work with it.  So here's what I did with a piece from the bottom of that sheet.  I was able to make two cards using that strip. The purple was on the left and the yellow ones were on the right.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I cut the full sheet on the shorter side so it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut the DSP from the bottom of the sheet at 1-3/4" x 4-1/4".  For the purple one I cut a piece pf Merry Merlot at 1-7/8" x 4-1/4" and I taped the DSP to it.  I did the same for the yellow piece.  When I cut the DSP, I cut the purple one across, leaving the factory edge on the left. And for the yellow one I left the factory edge on the right. I didn't want to catch any of the area where the two colors meet. 

The words are from the "Sweet Ice Cream" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I stamped them about 1/2" up from the bottom edge.

I taped the flower layer strip in place about 3/4" down from the top. And that was it. It's super simple to make and when you cut the 1-3/4" strip from the 12" x 12" sheet you can get two cards.  I like them both and I really liked how easy it was to make them.  Plus I used a piece of DSP that I was struggling with.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Birthday card,

Another cute idea. I'm really loving this DSP. I was wondering what card stock you used behind the yellow flowers? I really need to try these cards.

Hello Mz Cookie. The card stock behind the flowers is Merry Merlot on one and Pumpkin Pie on the other. Thank you for leaving a comment and visiting my blog.

Pumpkin Pie! I figured it might be that or Mango Melody. Thank you again for sharing your creativity.
