Days to Remember, Simply Zinnia, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have another quick card to share with you. I love making quick cards as much as I love making cards with lots of layers.  Today's card has a little fun fold to it. Please read on to see how it was made.

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

I scored the front of the card 1-1/4" from the fold. I glued that area shut. 

The splatter folder from the "Stripes & Splatters" embossing folder set was used on a piece of Basic White card stock. I trimmed that piece to 1" x 5-1/4" and I glued it to the left side of the card.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is the "Simply Zinnia" 12" x 12" package.  I think that's what it's called. I was gifted six 4" x 6" pieces along with matching card stock from Terri when I had placed an order with her. It's always fun to get things in the mail, isn't it?  So today I thought I'd play with the new stuff.  It also came with a technique page that has a card you make and then a small one the page for future reference. I have lots of those fun techniques in my binder. So back to the card. I cut my piece of DSP 3" x 5-1/2" and I taped it to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" and were stamped using black Memento ink. They were punched out using the "Double Oval" punch. I also used the same punch to punch out the Old Olive scalloped oval. I taped the ovals together, added Dimensionals to the back and I set it in place on the front of the card.  And that was it. A super quick and easy card to make. Oh and pretty too! Wouldn't this make a pretty Mother's Day card, get well card, thinking of you card, thinking of you card, friendship card, or a thank you card?  Such versatile paper. I love versatility with the items I work with.

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