Flowering Zinnias, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun card to share with you that allows you to use a couple pieces of your Designer Series Paper (DSP). I love finding cards that allow me to use my DSP and would work for retired DSP too. I found this card on Pinterest, you can see it here. I did change it a little.

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

I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock. One I taped to the inside and the other I taped to the outside.

The DSP is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package and was cut at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8". I taped that to the Basic White piece.

Next I cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock that measured 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" and I cut the DSP from the same package at 2-3/4" x 3-3/4". I taped the DSP to the Lemon Lime Twist piece and then that was taped to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink and were punched out using the "Double Oval" punch. The Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval was punched from the same punch. The ovals were taped together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. And that was it.

This was a super quick card to make and easy too. I can see myself using up a lot of retired DSP making cards with this layout.

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

So pretty! Love the subtle design on the larger piece of dsp as matting for the beautiful flowers.
