Short & Sweet Saturday - Happy Birthday Gorgeous


I've got a birthday card for you for this week's Short & Sweet Saturday. I used the new stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I opted not to use the die that coordinates with the set. I CASEd this one from one that Melissa Stout made.


Dimensions:
  • Daffodil Delight: 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Basic Black: 4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Whisper White: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" (stamped layer)
  • Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon: 6" and 4"

Instructions:
  1. Stamp the largest outline flower stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set two times onto the lower half of the Whisper White piece using the Crushed Curry Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the largest bold flower stamp on top of each one using the Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad. If there's room, stamp the branch stamp onto each of the flowers using the Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin' Pad (I only had room for a branch on the top flower). Stamp the same largest outline flower stamp around three times using the Berry Burst Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the same largest, bold flower stamp with the Berry Burst ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp onto one of the Berry Burst outline flowers. Do the same with the others. Stamp the same branch stamp onto the flowers that have room, using the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad. See picture for placement.
  2. Stamp the outline, five-petal flower stamp onto the same Whisper White piece around three times using the Powder PInk Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the bold, five-petal flower stamp with the Powder Pink ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp onto one of the Powder Pink outline flowers. Do the same with the others. Stamp the single, dotted flower stamp into some of the open spaces in-between the other flowers, using the Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp onto the bottom, right side of the card using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. See picture for placement.
  3. Attach the Whisper White layer onto the center of the Basic Black base layer piece. Wrap the 6" piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon around the top of the piece, attaching the ribbon ends to the back of the Basic Black cardstock. Tie the 4" piece onto the right side of the attached ribbon using a single knot, and trim the ribbon ends at an angle. I used the cross-stitched side of the ribbon, but either will work.
  4. Fold the Daffodil Delight card base piece in half. Attach the matted, stamped piece onto the center of the card base front. Attach three of the lighter colored enamel dots from the Glitter Enamel Dots. Starting from the left, I used a small, light Crushed Curry dot, a medium-sized, light Old Olive dot, and a medium-sized, light Berry Burst dot. See picture for placement.
