  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival and then run the top portion through the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder
  • Basic Black – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add whisper white piece and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Using Botanical Builder framelits cut out leaves from Basic Black, Basic Grey, Silver Glimmer and Vellum add to card front.
  • Silver Foil – 1/8 x 3 1/2, add using dimensionals
  • Cut out larger flower in Basic Black and smaller flower from Vellum, layer and add using dimensionals

Birthday Blooms

BirthdayBlooms3Well…you ready for another really cool card using this set?  I thought you might be!  Here’s another quick and easy card (anytime I don’t have to color and image…it is quick and easy for me!).  We be making this as a make and take at my group.

I don’t know about you but I love to look at ideas on Pinterest.  You too?  If you are also like me you tend to pin a TON of ideas…but do you make them?  Well…I started a file called cards to case and then I challenge myself to use them and once I do, I delete them from that file.  My last card was based on a card a found on Pinterest (that one was pretty close to the original although I did change like 5 things.  This one…if I showed you the card I ‘cased’ you’d laugh your socks off…it looks absolutely NOTHING like it!  But I LOVE the way this turned out!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • So Saffron – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting on bottom using Basic Black Archival, run the top part through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  HINT:  Since I only wanted the embossing on the to part, I just ‘hung it off the end’ of the platform so only the part I wanted embossed would be.
  • Black/white print – 1 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to panel, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4, stamp flower using Basic Black Archival, then cut into three panels – 1 1/2, 1 1/4, and 1, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Black sequins to finish off

Isn’t that cool!  Just a reminder…

Birthday Blooms

BirthdayBlooms2Okay…when I first saw this set, I thought…what the HECK do I need with STILL ANOTHER flower set.  So I didn’t buy it.  Then I had to put in another order and talked myself right into ordering it (what can I say…I have this thing for flower sets!).

Then I got it in and during my New Year’s weekend card making marathon played some with this set and all I can say….LOVE IT!!!  I kept things nice and simple on my cards…although I did cut out the image…LOVE cutting things out!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Black/White diagonal stripe print – 1 x 5 1/2, add to bottom of card front
  • Crushed Curry – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to top of card front
  • Whisper White – stamp image using Basic Black Archival and the center of the flower using Crushed Curry Marker and cut out
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 5 1/2, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival, add cut out flower, stamp dots using Crushed Curry
  • Crushed Curry, 1/8 x 5 1/2, add to bottom of Whisper White panel then add panel to card front using dimensionals
