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

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun layout to share with you. I may try another one later and use a different orientation. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I set that piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.

Next I cut a 2-3/4" 3-3/4" piece of  Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package. 

Then I cut the pieces on top of the DSP. The long strip on the left measures 1-1/8" x 2-3/4" for the green DSP (from the same package) and the Basic White piece measures 7/8" x 2-1/2". I taped these two layers together and then it was taped to the DSP piece.

The Basic White square was cut at 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and taped to the DSP.

The flower from the same package of DSP was fussy cut and set in place on the Basic White square using Dimensionals. The piece was glued to the front of the card

The words are from "Textured Floral" and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. They were cut using the 3rd largest die in the "Everyday Details" die set. I sponged the edges using Berry Burst ink. I set the piece in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

I'm not overly thrilled with how the card looks but I do like the layout. I'll give it another try sometime soon and hopefully do a better job on it.

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