Throughout the Year, Around the Bend, Sentimental Park, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a very quick and easy birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how the card was made.

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

I took a 4" x 3-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fresh as a Daisy" 12" x 12" package and I taped it to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock. When I cut the Basic White piece, I cut it just a hair shorter so no white would show through on the edges after taping the DSP down.

Then I took another piece of DSP from the same package and taped it to the bottom. It was cut at 4" x 2".  A 4" x 1/2" strip of Copper Clay card stock was cut for the strip and it was taped in place between the two pieces of DSP.

Next I stamped the words from the "Throughout the Year" set using Copper Clay ink. I die cut them using the die from the "Sentimental Park" bundle.

The flower is from the "Around the Bend" bundle. I die cut two larger ones and one smaller one for the center. I took a little makeup applicator (tiny spongy thing on a plastic stick) and brushed on some Copper Clay ink on the petals. I also scrubbed a little in the center of one of the larger flowers. 

Then I took some Moody Mauve ink and rubbed some over the little flower for the center. I added a dot of glue to the two larger flowers. I lined them up first (usually I'm doing that while to glue is drying and by the time I figure it out the glue is too dry).  Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. The flower cluster was added using a little bit of tape on the left side and a Dimensional on the lower side. And that was it, the card was done.

It is a very quick and easy card, isn't it?  

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