Today’s card pairs the “thank you for making my birthday happy” stamp from the All Things Thanks set with the gorgeous Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP). All products used are from Stampin’ Up!, and can be found in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.
I love the sentiment on this stamp, and I only get to use it once each year. I recently celebrated my birthday, and I am making and sending thank you cards. I posted a previous card for a girlfriend that you can see here. Today’s card is for my sister, and I think she will love the card and the beautiful photographic floral designs on the paper.
This paper (DSP) is unique, as it has floral frames. I am not sure what cool things others have made, but I wanted to stamp inside the frame, and the birthday sentiment fit perfectly!
The floral frames come in two sizes, and there is also a floral border. I chose the 3″ x 3″ frame, and trimmed it. I cut a piece of the border and trimmed it to 7/8″ x 3 3/4″. I then played with different color combinations, and finally decided on Smoky Slate, Heather Highland, and Petal Pink; all are found in the flowers on the DSP. I experimented to determine what I wanted to make, and then everything came together quickly. It is a simple card with a lot of frill, certain to make my sister smile!
I used Highland Heather ink to stamp the sentiment in the floral frame, and also on the inside of the card. I used stamps from All Things Thanks for the front, and from Beautiful Promenade for the inside panel.
For the card front, I adhered the stamped floral frame to a layer of Petal Pink, then glued everything to a layer of Highland Heather, including the floral border. I wrapped polka dot tulle ribbon around the layer, above the floral border, and tied a bow for a lovely, frilly touch.
