Simply Zinnia, Go To Greetings, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you that I found on Pinterest. It was made by Terri Gaines and I changed it a little. 

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.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Bee Mine" Valentine's 12" x 12" package. I was trying to find more used for that DSP. I didn't make very many Valentine's Day card with it and it certainly won't be in the next catalog so I need to find ways to use it up.  This piece was perfect for the flowers, on the other side are rows of honey jars, so it's perfect that this DSP will work with other themes. I cut my DSP 5-1/4" x 2-1/4". I taped it to the left side of the card leaving about 1/4" border on the top, folded side and bottom.

Next I stamped the flowers from the "Simply Zinnia" bundle using black Memento ink. I colored them in using both light and dark Poppy Parade Blends pens. I also used both light and dark Granny Apple Green Blends pens for the stems and leaves. For the center of the flowers I used the light Daffodil Delight and Pecan Pie Blends pens. Once the coloring was done I cut them out with the matching die in the bundle.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I cut them out using the second largest ribbon die from the "Stylish Shapes" set.

I set the flowers and word piece in place on the front of the card with Dimensionals and the card was done.

This is a very quick and easy card to make. The coloring took the longest to do but it went pretty fast. I plan on making more using this bundle, it's fun and easy.

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