Bee Mine, Darling Details, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a birthday card to share with you. It's quick and easy to make plus it's colorful. When I sat down to make a card today my thought was that I wanted to make a colorful card. I think I succeeded! Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 5-1/4" x 2-1/8".  I textured that piece using the "Softly  Sophisticated" embossing folder. Then I glued it to the left side of the card.

The 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package. I was thrilled when I saw that design in the package, it meant that I can use it beyond Valentine's Day because it's not hearts, it's just pretty cute little flowers.  I taped the DSP to the front of the card. I think I should have cut it at 2" and maybe it would not have had so much white showing on the right side. Didn't notice that till I mentioned it, did you?  Shhhh, don't tell anyone!  But I'd recommend cutting yours at 2" and taping it down first and then gluing the textured piece.

Next I cut a piece of Basic White to measure 2-1/2" x 3-3/4".  I stamped the flowers from the "Darling Details" bundle using Poppy Parade ink. The stems and leaves were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink. Then I layered it on a piece of Poppy Parade card stock that measured 2-3/4" x 4".  I glued that to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Granny Apple Green ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. 

Using the same punch I punched out the scalloped oval Poppy Parade layer. The two ovals were taped together, Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.  And that was it.

So bright and cheery, huh? I think this card could be used for a number of other occasions too!

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

Love this card! That embossing folder is such a great design to use with the dsp. Beautiful flower. I haven't used that stamp set as much as I should.
