Flight & Airy, Go To Greetings, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I took a day off from blogging and cardmaking yesterday, I was just overly tired for some reason so I just slept half the day away.  So now I feel refreshed and back at cardmaking (plus the chores that were waiting yesterday are still here today!). I found this pretty card on Pinterest but was unable to find instructions for it. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how I put it all together. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut the sheet in half on the 8-1/2" side so once cut it measured 4-1/4" x 11"  It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I like to cut a piece of card stock to tape my Designer Series Paper (DSP) to so I cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 4" x 5-1/4".

The DSP is from the "Flight & Airy" 12" x 12" package and my piece was cut at 4" x 5-1/4".  I cut 2" off the top of that and used the flip side of that piece for the top. I taped both pieces on top of my piece of card stock. I also cut a 1/4" strip of the blue DSP from a sheet in the package. I cut it 4" long.  I taped that across the middle seam of the two pieces. I didn't press down on the tape so I could slip the half doily piece in place. It's from the "Delightful Doily" die set and was cut from a piece of Basic White card stock.  I cut it in half. A little glue was added to the solid part just above the lace and slipped under the taped blue strip.

Next I die cut a Basic White circle from the "Stylish Shapes" set using the third largest circle in that set. Dimensionals were added to the back and it was set in place on front of the card, lining up the bottom of the circle with the roundness of the solid part of the doily piece.

The bird is from the same "Flight & Airy" DSP package and was fussy cut. It was then set in place on top of the circle. Leave enough room for the words.

The words are from the "Go to Greetings" set and were stamped on a 3/8" strip of Basic White card stock using Boho Blue ink. Once stamped the ends were snipped and the piece was taped in place on the circle. Only use tape where the piece will be touching the circle.  And the card was done.

Isn't it pretty? If I loved fussy cutting I'd make a few of these to have on hand but I'm not so this will be the only one for now! It was a fun card to make and it really didn't take that long either.

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