Perennial Postage, Days to Remember, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a birthday card to share with you. I found this card on Pinterest. You can see the original card here. I changed it just a little. There were no instructions so I had to wing it. Please read on to see how I made this card. 

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

The first thing I did was I die cut the opening in the front of the card. I was sure the Designer Series Paper (DSP) was not die cut and taped on top of if the front of the card was die cut. So I went ahead and die cutting the front of the card. I used the second largest die in the "Perennial Postage" die set. 

The DSP is from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. I cut it at 4" x 5-1/4" and taped it to the inside of the front of the card. Then I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock that measured just a hair smaller than 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and tape that over the DSP on the inside of the cover. Before you tape it down, slip the card stock in and see if any of it sticks out. If it does, trim it up just a little and you'll be fine.

Next I die cut the pieces to the flower. I used Daffodil Delight for the center ring. Berry Burst for the flower center and one set of petals. Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo were used for the other two flower petal pieces. The leaves and stem were die cut using Lemon Lime Twist card stock. 

I glued the flower pieces together and then glued the flower to the front of the card. 

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. I set the words in place using Dimensionals.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was taped to the inside and the card was done.

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