Thoughtful Blooms Birthday Card

Today’s card is a quick and easy birthday card made with just a few supplies. Lately, my favorite color is Flirty Flamingo, so that color is the star of this card. The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set and the Small Bloom Punch are only available during Sale-A-Bration which ends on March 31,2020.

Card recipe:

~ Cut Flirty Flamingo card stock at 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”. Score at 4-1/4”

~ Cut the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP at 5-7/8” x 4-1/8”

~ Cut Whisper White card stock at 5-1/4” x 4” (cut two if you want a Whisper White layer on the inside of your card).

~ Now it’s time to stamp! I did a whimsical pattern across the card. I love how it looks. To begin: stamp 3 of the larger flowers on a scrap of Flirty Flamingo card stock and punch out with the Small Bloom Punch (this can be found on page 13 of the the Sale-A-Bration mini catalog). Use these as a guide as you stamp everything else. Stamp the leaves in Garden Green, the flowers in Flirty Flamingo and the berries in pool party. Don’t forget to stamp your sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White.

~ Adhere your 3 large flowers.

~ Using the Timeless Label punch: punch out your sentiment and a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock. I cut the Flirty Flamingo piece in half lengthwise to create a backdrop for the Whisper White piece. Adhere your layers.

~ Wrap some twine or ribbon around the base of the Whisper White 5-1/4” x 4” layer. Once that is in place, glue all of your layers together, pop your sentiment up on dimensionals, add some bling and your card is done!

Now is a perfect time to send some of our cards to those that may be feeling a little isolated or lonely. If you need any assistance ordering products, please send me a message. I am happy to give you ideas or pop a catalog in the mail. So, cut that paper and Happy Crafting! Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
