Painted Lavender, Throughout the Year, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a pretty birthday card to share with you. I found the basics of this card on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how the card was made. 

The base of the 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 1" x 5-1/2" strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Perennial Lavender" 12" x 12" package. A 3/8" x 5-1/2" piece of Lost Lagoon was cut for the strip.

A 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock was cut and then textured using the "Layered Florals" embossing folder to texture the piece. I glued that piece to the front of the card. Then I glued the DSP to the left side. The Lost Lagoon strip was glued in place. I set the piece aside to dry a bit.

Next I stamped the flowers from the "Printed Lavender" set using Highland Heather on the larger piece and Gorgeous Grape on the detailed piece. I cut them out using the matching die. At the same time I die cut the leaves behind the flowers using a piece of Lost Lagoon card stock.

I added a little bit of glue behind the leaves piece and set it in place at a slight angle. The original card had it set on the card pretty much straight up. I wanted to see more of the leaves than just the tips. The lavender flowers were glued down next. 

A double bow was tied using linen thread and set down on the front of the card with a glue dot. 

The words are from the "Throughout the Year" set using Gorgeous Grape ink. I used the second smallest die from the "Countryside Corners" set. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

I colored some retired "Polished Dots" using my dark Highland Heather Blends pen. I set them in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

This was such a sweet looking card. Can you see why I had to make one?

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