Go To Greetings, Be Mine, Painted Texture, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I do have some good news to share with you today. I think my illness has taken a turn for the better. I was awake a lot more today than I have been since last Friday. We even ran to the store to get more cough meds and I didn't feel as weak but I couldn't wait to get home to have lunch and take a long nap. The cough is still there and is fierce but it's not as frequent so I take any baby step forward as good. Tomorrow will be even better! Today I have a card to share with you that I saw on "Heartwarmer's From Vicki". The post is dated April 11th 2024.  I loved the layout. You can use it for SO many occasions. Plus you can use up some Designer Series Paper (DPS). And the added bonus is, it's a quick card to make. 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 from the bottom and the fold is on the top. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock that I textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued this to the front of the card base.

The DSP is from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package. I was thrilled to be able to use more of this paper. I hate being stuck with leftover Valentine's Day paper because I know it will not be showing up in the next catalog. Once Valentine's Day is done the paper is pretty much done. So when I can still use some I'm thrilled.  My piece of DSP measures 2" x 5-1/4".  I think the piece is not quite as wide on the original card, it's difficult to tell.  I taped the DSP to a 2-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Poppy Parade card stock.  Before I had taped it I die cut the ribbon layer using the die from the "Stylish Shapes" set. If you have scraps of Poppy Parade to use then by all means use them. I didn't and I didn't want to take a new piece of Poppy Parade when I could just use the layer and no one will know there's a piece missing in the middle. Once the DSP was taped to the Poppy Parade piece I glued that to the front of the card about 1/4" from the bottom edge of the card.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the next size smaller ribbon die in the "Stylish Shapes" set. I taped the word piece to the Poppy Parade piece. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. And the card was done.

I have plans on using up some wedding looking DSP and making wedding and anniversary cards using this layout. I have WAY too much DSP to use up but this will help some. And if you have some time visit Vicki's blog and see her beautiful cards.

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

So glad you are feeling a bit better. That kind of cough you had really zaps a person! I'm happy you were able to make a card using that layout. It's such an easy one to do for so many different occasions. (And you got your sentiment on straight hopefully the first time unlike me.)
