Softly Sophisticated, Softly Sophisticated, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blot. Today I have a pretty card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. I was still wanting to play with the "Softly Sophisticated" set and when I saw this card I thought it would be fun to make. There's no instructions on how to make this card so please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4"piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped it using the leaves and flowers images from the "Softly Sophisticated" set with Crumb Cake ink. 

Then I cut a 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Crumb Cake card stock and textured it using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder. I glued that to the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake card stock.

I took a 6" piece of vanilla ribbon (retired) and taped the ends to the backside. Then I glued the piece to the front of the card base.

The image was stamped next. I used Garden Green for the leaves and Highland Heather for the flowers. I die cut them using the 10th largest die from the "Deckled Circles" set. Then I die cut a Highland Heather card stock layer using the 9th largest die from the same set. I taped the two pieces together. Dimensionals were added to the back and it was set in place on the front of the card about 3/8" from the fold and 3/8" from the top. 

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped on a 3/8" x 3" strip of Very Vanilla and were stamped using Crumb Cake ink. I snipped the ends to about 3/8" from the words on each end. Then I snipped the "V" on each end. Tape was added to the left side and a Dimensional was added to the right side.

I thought bottom looked a bit too empty so I added a few pearls to brighten it up a bit.  And that was it.

This was a fun, quick and easy card to make.

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