Color & Contour, Art Gallery, Scalloped Contours, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello. I'm glad you could make it here today to see my latest creation. I had no idea where I was going with this card when I started. I took a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock and folded it in half. Then I stared at it for a bit. All I knew was that I needed a birthday card.

I took out my "Color & Contour" bundle and stamped the flower on a piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut it out with the matching die and then I colored it in using both light dark Poppy Parade Blends and light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends pens. 

Next I die cut a scalloped stitched rectangle using the die from the "Scalloped Contours" die set on Basic White card stock. 

Dimensionals were added to the back of the flower and I set the flower in place on top of the scalloped rectangle. I was going to set this on the front of the card base but it just looked too plain. So I stared at it some more.  LOL 

Then I took the rectangle die from the "Fabulous Frames" die set and die cut the large frame. You get a bonus with this die. You get a nice 3" x 4-1/4" rectangle to use on a future card.  I added small Dimensionals behind the rectangle frame and set it in place on the front of the card.

Then I set the scalloped piece in place in the middle.

The words are from the "Art Gallery" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the die from the "Stylish Shapes" set. I put Dimensionals on the back and set the piece in place on the upper left of the card. And the card was done.

For not knowing where I was going with this card, I was pleased at where I ended up. Now to sign it and get it ready to hand deliver!

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