Darling Details, Perennial Lavender, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

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

This is one of my favorite layouts. It creates a nice focal piece for your Designer Series Paper (DPS).  

For my card I cut a half-sheet of Basic White card stock and folded it in half. Before folding it, it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock for the layer.  

The Baisc White piece measures 3-1/8" x 4-1/4" and the DSP from the "Perennial Lavender" 12" x 12" package measures 3" x 3". I taped the two pieces togethr making sure the DSP was lined up at the top and sides, leaving the bottom open for the words.

The words are from the "Darling Details" set and were stamped using Gorgeous Grape ink. 

After stamping I took a 6" piece of 1/4" ribbon and taped the ends to the back. Then I glued the piece to the Gorgeous Grape piece.

I fussy cut a bird from the "Perennial Lavender" DSP and I set it aside.

Two leaf clusters were die cut from the "Textured Floral" bundle using Basic White card stock. Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed on some Highland Heather ink. I loaded up my brush and then I went from the stem to the top of the leaves I only went in one direction. This creates the look of the darker shaded area under the leaves. 

The leaves were glued in place and the bird was set in place on top using Dimensionals. 

For a final touch I added a brass butterfly and the card was done.

This was a fun, quick and easy card to make.

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