Days to Remember, Around the Bend, Fresh as a Daisy, Birthday Card, Stampin Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun card to share with you and it's got lots of pieces. It took more than the usual 20 minutes or so to make but it's SO worth it. I saw a card that Vicki from "Heartwarmers from Vicki" had made and I thought I'd give it a try. You can see her card here from her March 15, 2024 post. There's no direct link to the card, just to the blog. I love her little bunnies. I didn't have any bunny dies and I had to think of what I had that would fit in those squares and I ended up with the flowers. 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 took the card to my paper cutter and cut off 2-1/8" from the front.

I taped on a 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fresh as a Daisy" 12" x 12" package. I also took another piece of the DSP that measures 2-1/4" x 2-1/4", it was cut diagonally and then taped to the inside of the card on the upper and lower right side. 

On the inside I also taped two layered pieces. The Boho Blue measures 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" and the Basic White piece measures 2-5/8" 2-5/8". I taped those two pieces together and then taped that to the inside of the card.

The flowers are from the "Around the Bend" bundle. I die cut 6 of them. Then I sponged on some Boho Blue to the tips. I glued two together. The center is a die cut piece of Copper Clay and glued to the center of each flower.

Next I cut three 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" pieces of Boho Blue card stock and four 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock for the squares for the front. I taped the two pieces together and I set aside the one Basic White piece left. I taped two of the squares in place first, the top and the bottom. I lied up the tip with the bottom and edge of the DSP. I thought the center one was a bit more difficult to put on. I added a tiny bit of tape where I thought it would touch the front inside of the card and then I set the piece on the inside of the card so I could line it up with the layers already taped down. Once lined up I shut the card and pressed down so it picked the square off the inside. Then I pulled the edges back a little and added a dot of glue on three tips (one at a time) and that piece was now affixed to the card. On the back of that piece I added the other Basic White square. But before taping it in place I stamped the words from the "Days to Remember" set using Boho Blue ink.

The flowers were set in place using glue dots and the card was done.

All in all it was fun but it does have lots of pieces to play with and I did lose one of the Basic White pieces. Who knows where it went! It's somewhere on my worktable. I didn't keep all the pieces in one spot and that's what happens. And then I wonder if I really did cut four or was it just three?  LOL.  I just cut another one and saved myself some time in hunting!

I am pleased with the looks of this birthday card.

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