Textured Floral, Flowering Zinnias, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I found today's card on Pinterest. What attracted me to this card was the line of diamond dots and of course the use of more "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package of Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how the card was made.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Melon Mambo card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. I cut

I cut two  4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock, one for the outside and one for the inside. I taped the inside piece in place. 

Next I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of DSP that I die cut the dotted diamond line using the die from the "Everyday Details" die set. I taped the DSP to the Basic White piece and then I taped that to the card base.

The words are from the "Textured Floral" set and were stamped on a piece of Basic White card sock using Melon Mambo ink. I die cut them using the circle die in the same "Everyday Details" die set. 

The flowers are from a piece of DSP in the "Flowering Zinnias" package and were fussy cut. 

I taped the word piece in place and then added the flowers to the front.

I took some retired embellishments and colored them using my dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen and I set them in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and very easy too. I do like the dotted diamond line, I think it adds a lot to the card.

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