Petal Park, Pick of the Patch, Through The Years, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fall birthday card to share with you. It was pretty simple to make and I was able to turn a spring/summer set into a fall one with just a little bit of color! Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Garden Green card stock. I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock to the inside. I also cut another 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card tock for the outside of the card.

I stamped the leaves from the "Petal Park" set using Garden Green ink. I had set it up in my Stamparatus and I stamped twice, that's why it's so dark. And in being so dark I had to use black Memento ink for the details.

The flowers were stamped next. I used Crushed Curry ink for the solid part and Pumpkin Pie for the details. There is a punch for the flowers but I just fussy cut them (because once again I was too lazy to get up and get the punch. It's so involved. I would have to get off my chair, walk over to where the punches are kept, find the right punch, and walk back to my worktable.  See, so involved!!! It just screams "LAZY" doesn't it?  LOL). Once the flowers were cut I set them aside.

I stamped the pumpkin from the "Pick of the Patch" set using Pumpkin Pie ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I stamped the stem using Pecan Pie ink and the leaf using Garden Green ink. I fussy cut the three of those out.

Before adding the words I assembled the card. If I were to make the card again, I would just set the pieces on the front so I could see where to add the dots. I ended up getting ink on the one flower and I had to redo it. I stamped off once using Pecan Pie ink for the dots. You can also do the words at this time as well. I didn't! Sometimes I do things a bit backwards when I'm designing because I'm not really sure where I'm going with the card/project.

The pumpkin was set in place first using Dimensionals. Then the little flower on the right and the larger flower on the left were added using Dimensionals. I taped the medium size flower in place.

I added my wording from the "Through the Years" set using Pecan Pie ink.  I taped the piece to the front of the card and the card was done.

I though this was a fun card to make and I was glad I could work a fall card into the "Petal Park" set.

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