Filled With Happiness, Flowering Zinnias, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a birthday card to share with you using some soon to be retiring products. I feel I need to play with these more so I can justify my purchasing of them (which I can never do! 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. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

My Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Flowering Zinnia's" 12" x 12"package.  The piece I used measured 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".  The backside of the flowered piece was used on the bottom. It was nice to use one piece and not have more scraps. I cut the top piece 3-1/4". I taped the bottom piece in place first and then the top piece.

I cut a 4-1/4" x 3/8" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and taped it over the seam where the two pieces of DSP meet.

Using the "Filled With Happiness" set I stamped the birthday one using black Memento ink. I punched a Petal Pink oval using the "Modern Oval" punch. I taped it over the bird image that was part of the original image.

A flower was fussy cut from the "Flowering Zinnias" DSP and was set in place on the oval using Dimensionals. I had fussy cut the leaves and slipped them under the flower using a little bit of glue.  And the card was done.

This was a very quick and easy card to make other than fussy cutting around the oval. I had made a template to make sure I got the oval the same all around. I kept it in the stamp case for future cards. I had used it once before on a card and I was glad I kept it.

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