Cheerful Daisies, Days to Remember, Birthday Cards, Stampin' Up!

 Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Night of Navy card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold was on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and taped it to the front of the card base.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) was gifted to me so I'm not sure what package it came from but I do know it's from a 6" x 6" stack. I cut this piece at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  Now that I see it on my computer screen, I'm thinking the color is Blueberry Bushel and not Night of Navy, though Night of Navy did work for the card base. I taped this piece to the Basic White piece.

Next I die cut the flowers from the "Cheerful Daisies" bundle and cut out with the matching dies. The leaves and the ferny branch piece too. All from Basic White card stock. I sponged on some Granny Apple Green on the leaves and some Soft Sea Foam on the ferny piece. The centers of the small flowers were stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink and the center on the large flower was stamped using Daffodil Delight ink. I die cut the large center and fussy cut the two small centers. I taped them in place on the center of the flowers. 

The flowers were then set in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. I started with the large one and then added the top small one and then the bottom one.

A little bit of glue was added to the ends of the greenery and they were tucked under the flowers.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch and set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. It seemed odd to me to not to have a layer behind the word piece. In order to make that work the layer would have had to have been white and the word piece Night of Navy using white embossing powder. But this worked it just seemed odd to me. That's what happens when you step outside your comfort zone!

I do like how this card turned out. I love the colors. It's got such a fresh feel to it.

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