Days to Remember, Flight & Airy, 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 I made it.

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 a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flight & Airy" 12" x 12" package. The backside of that piece is the blue you see on the bottom part of the card and it measures 3-1/2" x 1-1/2".  I also cut a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of Basic White card stock to tape the DSP to. I do this to make sure my DSP is straight and the correct size. When I taped the DSP down I taped the bottom piece first and then the piece with the bird on it. 

A piece of 1/4" white ribbon was taped around to the backside of the piece. This is another reason why I use card stock. Taping the edges around the piece could cause the piece to buckle or even worse, tear. So I just play it save and use a piece of card stock. You can use any color you want if you cut it just a hair smaller so the edges of it won't show. 

Once the ribbon was taped on I glued it to a piece of 3-3/4" x 5"  Boho Blue card stock. Then the piece was taped to the card base.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" using Boho Blue ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. The layer behind it is Boho Blue and was punched with the same punch using the scalloped oval. I taped the two pieces together and added Dimensionals to the back. The piece was then set in place on the front of the card. I moved the oval over to the right so it hung over the edge of the Boho Blue layer. 

I took the end of the ribbon, still on the spool and slipped it under the taped ribbon, I tied a knot and cut the ends of the ribbon.

And the card was done. I think it's SO pretty and the DSP just makes a great focal point.

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