Simply Zinnia, Simply Said, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I found a card on Pinterest that caught my eye.  What was kind of funny (in an odd way) was I had that same exact strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP) in my package that was on the card. Leftover from previous cards. You can see the original card here.  Please read on to see how it was made.

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 DSP from the "Flowering Zinnias" 12" x 12" package and taped it to the front of the card base.

Next I took out that strip of DSP and measured it. It is 1-1/2" wide and 5-1/4" long. I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock (I didn't have that glitter paper that is on the original card) and I taped the DSP strip to it. Then I taped that to the front of the card about 5/8" from the fold.

The words are from the "Simply Said" set and were stamped using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I cut them out using the die from the "Labeled with Love" bundle. I opted to by the dies instead of the punch. You get three of the same size dies, which is nice and they all fit inside the stamp set container. I added Dimensionals to the word piece and set it aside.

Then I cut the flower and stem. I used Flirty Flamingo for the flowers. I cut two of them. The stem is Mossy Meadow and I cut one. I glued the two flowers together and then glued them to the stem. 

I removed the protective pieces on the Dimensionals and placed the flower stem across the piece first and then set it in place on the front of the card.

This was a super quick and easy card to make. What caught my eye when I saw it was the cute little flower under the word piece.  I can see myself making more of these (if I have more DSP strips!).

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