Dainty Delight, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. It's the last day of the year, can you believe it? For some it's a most welcome day and others sit in dismay. 2023 was not an ugly year so I'm not welcoming the last day with glee. I thought it was a busy year and it went by too quickly. I'm in the dismay category, the days are just flying by. And here I am making a card on New Year's Eve. But then again, I make a card every day so there's that! LOL  I found today's card on Pinterest and you can see the original card here.  There were no instructions when I clicked the link so I had to wing it. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

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 cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the layer and for the top layer I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock for the top piece.

On the top piece I stamped the floral image from the "Dainty Delight" bundle using black Memento ink. I colored it in using the following light Blends pens, Old Olive, Highland Heather, and Balmy Blue. For the larger flowers I used my Bubble Bath and Fresh Freesia markers because I didn't have those colors in Blends. 

After coloring I used the 3rd largest stitched square from the "Stylish Shapes" set. After cutting it I realized I should have moved the image over to the right more before stamping. But it is what it is and I ran with it. Once the square was cut out I added the strip of ribbon, taping the ends on the back. Then I slipped the ribbon under the strip of ribbon and tied a knot and cut the ribbon from the spool. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on top of the first layer I cut. I should have stamped the words before added the Dimensionals but I forgot but knew I could add them later. Anyway, I took the two layers and taped them to the card base.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Highland Heather ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. I set them in place using Dimensionals and the card was done. I do like how the words are popped up compared to them being flat on the card. It added a bit more dimension to the card. Imagine that, using Dimensionals adds dimension! LOL 

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make and I thank you for stopping in to see it today,
