Days to Remember, Perennial Postage, Flight & Airy, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a pretty card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. You can see it here.  There is no link so I had to guess at how it was made. Please read on to see how I made this card. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Misty Moonlight card stock. Once cut it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  I a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and I taped it to the inside. I cut a quarter sheet of Basic White card stock and cut the largest die from the "Perennial Postage" die set.  I taped it to the front of the card. Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed on some Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather ink.

Next I cut a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer. Before I textured it using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder, I die cut a circle using the second largest die from the "Stylish Shapes" set. I saved the circle for a future card (hopefully!).  I didn't have the circle used on the original card. The piece was set in place using Dimensionals. 

I didn't have the same leaves as on the original card so I used some from the "Textured Floral" bundle. Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed on some Fresh Freesia ink. I had die cut two sets and I did clip pieces off it to make the areas look fuller.  I glued them in place.

Two birds were fussy cut from a sheet in the "Flight & Airy" 12" x 12" package of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I set them in place with Dimensionals. I doubled up on the Dimensionals for extra height because the birds heads tilted too much toward the center of the circle.  

I also did not have any current ribbon so I took some Night of Navy ribbon that I had and I cut it in half lengthwise. I tied a bow and glued it to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Misty Moonlight ink. The "Dual Oval" punch was used for the words and for the Misty Moonlight card stock for the scalloped layer. It was glued in place on the front of the card.

Three pearls were colored using the Night of Navy Blends Pen and set in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

I like how this turned out even without having a lot (and I mean A LOT) of the element used on the original card.

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

That is a great card and the arrangement of the birds would have made a wonderful anniversary card as well.
