Layering Leaves, Around the Bend, Dainty Delight, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun quick card to share with you. Please read on to see how it was made.

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

I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer. Then I added some score lines to it. I set the piece on my scoring board and I scored it at 1/2" and 3/4" on the left, the long side. Remember you will  be turning this over so the bumpy part of the score lines will be on the front. I scored it about 1/2" down from the top and 1/2" from the bottom. Then I scored the bottom at 1/2" and 3/4" down. I stopped when the lines met the first ones I made and I stopped about 1/2" from the side. You might want to practice on a piece of scrap copier paper first. 

Next I die cut the cute little daisies from the "Around the Bend" bundle using Basic White card stock. I die cut 6 of them. I glued two together. I had to move the petals around a bit until I could get them to line up nicely to my liking. The centers of the flowers were done using a regular paper punch on a scrap piece of Lemon Lolly card stock. I glued them to the center of each flower. And the leaves are from the "Dainty Delight" bundle. I die cut three of them using Parakeet Party card stock. Granny Apple Green would work but I wanted to keep the colors light. I laid the flowers on the right side for placement. I needed to find some nice wording for the upper area.

The words are from the "Layering Leaves" set and were stamped using black Memento ink.

Now it was time to get the flowers affixed. I glued the top one down first with just a dot of mono glue. The center one was set in place using a Dimensional. And the third one was glued in place the same as the top one. I put a little bit of glue on a scrap piece of card stock and dipped the stem of the leaves in it and set them in place under the flowers.  And that was it, the card was done.

This was a very fun and quick card to make. I love the soft colors. This is another one of those versatile cards! Ya gotta love that!

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