Two-Tone Flora, Beautifully Happy, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello. I found a beautiful card for you to see today. You can see the original card here. I changed it just a little to fit with the supplies I have.

The base of the card is a folded half-piece of Orchid Oasis card stock. The card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I took a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fancy Flora" 6" x 6" package and I cut it at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and taped it to the front of the card base.

Next I took the big floral die from the "Two-Tone Flora" bundle and die cut it from a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Orchid Oasis card stock. I did have to trim the piece a little to make it more symmetrical. If I would have remembered from yesterday's die cutting I should have moved the die over about 1/8" from the edge of the card stock I wouldn't have had to trim anything. I'll try to keep that in mind the next time. I had lined up the left side and the top side before I die cut it. So moving it that 1/8" should do the trick. Next I took a piece of waxed paper (I could have used my silicone mat but I'm lazy and didn't want to clean it) and I put some glue down on it. I took a sponge and sponged the glue on the back of the die cut piece. Then the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

I stamped the flowers from the "Two-Tone Flora" set using Daffodil Delight ink for the main part of the flower and Calypso Coral for the details. The leaves were stamped using Soft Succulent ink. I stamped and die cut two of these.

The words are from the "Beautifully Happy" set and were stamped using Soft Succulent ink. I die cut them and set them aside.

I cut some Soft Succulent ribbon I had and taped it to the center of the card. Then the top flower was glued in place, slipping the top glued leaf under it.

Next I glued the other leaf down and then set the last flower in place using Dimensionals. 

The word piece was slipped in under the bottom flower with glue on the backside.

I had some Old Olive pearls so I set them in place on the front of the card. Unless you know the difference between the Old Olive and Soft Succulent colors you can't tell it's not the same. Well, now you can because I told you!!! LOL  A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was added to the inside and the card was done.

This was a very fun card to make and I thought it was pretty simple too!

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