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

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a floral birthday card to share with you. I found it on Pinterest but the image was tiny in a small group of other cards. There was no link to find the original poster so I had to wing it.  You can see that grouping here. 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. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock for the layer.

A 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock was cut and then textured using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder from the 2024 Sale-a-Brations catalog. I glued it to the Gorgeous Grape piece.

Next I die cut the scalloped rectangle using the die from the "Color & Contour" bundle on Highland Heather card stock.

A 2-5/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Basic White was cut for the center of the Highland Heather piece. And the Designer Series Paper (DPS) is from the "Perennial Lavender" and was taped to the Basic White piece. Then that was taped to the Highland Heather piece. And then that was glued to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Throughout the Year" set and was stamped using Versa Mark with white embossing powder sprinkled on top. I heat set it and then die cut it using the smallest die in the "Deckled Rectangles" die set. 

I took a 6" piece of ribbon (retired) and crossed it on itself. A glue dot was used to hold it together and another one was used to stick it to the DSP.  Dimensionals were added to the back of the word piece and it was set in place on top of the card. And the card was done.

Isn't it pretty? I love these colors and that DSP. I'm not a big fan of heat embossing. I'm not sure why, maybe I'm just too lazy to get up and get the Versa Mark in one spot and then the embossing powder in another place and then the heat tool. Not sure why but I do like how it looks when I'm done.

I thank you ever SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
