Enjoy the Rhythm, Simply Zinnia, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I still had my pieces of gifted "Simply Zinnia" Designer Series Paper (DSP) sitting on my worktable so I thought I'd play with them again today. You all know I never put anything away, everything is always sitting on my worktable! LOL Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Exposed Brick" embossing folder. I glued this piece to the front of the card base.  I actually cut and textured two pieces because of the way I had cut my DSP I was able to make two cards at the same time.

Next I took the floral DSP you see on the card and cut it at 2" x 3-3/4" and the Old Olive layer behind it was cut at 2-1/4" x 4".  

The Petal Pink dotted DSP is from the same package and was cut at 3" x 3-3/4" and the Old Olive layer was cut at 3-1/4" x 4".  I taped the layers together. 

Then I glued down the Petal Pink layer at an angle.  I was going to go with a more traditional layout but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something different for a change. 

The floral piece was glued in place in the upper left corner.

The "Enjoy the Rhythm" set was used for the words. I stamped them using Melon Mambo ink and punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. Using the same punch I punched out the scalloped oval. I taped the ovals together and then set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make and I'm glad I angled the Petal Pink piece, it gave the card a unique look. Plus I think more of the Petal Pink DSP shows this way.

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