Wanted to Say, Fresh as a Daisy, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

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

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

I cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fresh as a Daisy" 12" x 12" package. There is a couple of pages in the package that you cut apart to have ready to tape pieces. This is the last one of those in my package. I wasn't saving it, I just didn't know what I was going to do with it because of the color. It's not a color I'm fond of but now that fall is here that color has come into play and is more pleasing now. The only problem with this piece is the measurement. It was cut at 3-3/4" x 5-1/4".  I suppose I could have cut a little off the top and bottom to get it to measure more equally around the card front. But I didn't want that much white showing so what I ended up doing was taking another piece of DSP from the same package and add it to the inside of the card. I cut a strip 3/8" x 5-1/2" and taped the strip to the right edge on the inside of the card.

The words are from the "Wanted to Say" die set. I used Basic White and Pecan Pie card stock.  I used double sided tape for the words so I could make them into a sticker and make it easier to add to the background piece. I really like these dies and plan to use them more (because I remembered I have them!!). I set the words in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

There's no stamping on this card. Nice, huh?  I'm happy with the way it turned out and even more thrilled that I had used up 100% of two sheets of DSP in that package!!

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