Enduring Beauty, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a versatile card to share with you. I made mine into a birthday card but it can be used for several other occasions. It's very easy to make and you can have the prettiest coloring you've ever done! I am amazed at how it turned out. 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" x 5-1/4" piece of Daffodil Delight card stock and I taped it to the front of the card.

A piece of Basic White card stock was used to die cut the postage stamp edged rectangle piece using the dies from the "Enduring Beauty" bundle. Then I textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that on top of the Daffodil Delight piece, centering it as much as I could by eyeing it.

I stamped the flower image using the stamp from the "Enduring Beauty" bundle on a piece of Basic White card stock with black Memento ink. I colored the piece in using the fun masks. They are numbered and have a "V" on the upper left edge so you really can't mess it up. Using my Blending Brush I colored the flowers in using Daffodil Delight ink. Then the next mask does the highlights. I scrubbed on some Crushed Curry and that was it for the flowers. Next was the leaves. I used Granny Apple Green and the next mask. And then the details on the leaves was done with another mask. I used Garden Green for that and the piece was all colored.  I set up my workspace to do several flowers at one time since I was getting the stencils all inked up. I set them aside and will make a card with them on another day. 

The bundle has a die to cut out the whole flower image. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I punched them out using the punch from the "Dual Oval" punch.

Using the same punch I punched out a Granny Apple Green scalloped oval. I taped the ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. And the card was done.

Isn't it pretty? I love the coloring, it looks SO perfect! I'm in awe!

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