Days to Remember, Softly Sophisticated, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a very pretty card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here.  I clicked through the link but got no information on measurements 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. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party card stock for the layer. On top of that is a piece of 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Softly Stippled" 12" x 12"package. The DSP was taped to the Pool Party piece but not taped to the front of the card.

A 3" x 3-3/4" piece of DSP from the same package was cut and then taped on top of the larger piece of DSP. A piece of Pool Party colored ribbon (mine is retired) was added to the piece. I cut it at 7" piece and I taped the ends to the back of the piece.

Next I cut a 2-5/8" x 2-7/8" piece of Pool Party card stock for the smaller back layer. On top of that is a 2-3/8" x 2-5/8" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock. And the Basic White focal piece was cut at 2-1/4" x 2-1/2".  I taped the Mossy Meadow piece to the Pool Party layer and I set it aside.

Using the Basic White piece I stamped the stems from the "Softly Sophisticated" using Mossy Meadow ink. The flowers were stamped using Pool Party ink. 

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. Then this piece was taped to the Pool Party/Mossy Meadow layers.  Dimensionals were added to the back of the piece and it was set in place on the front of the card.

This was such a fun card to make. I LOVE lots of layers on cards but they do take a bit longer than the more simpler cards do but now and then you need to spend some time on an card and have some fun.

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