Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays - TWO Birthday Cards

 


Hello!  Thank you for swinging by my blog today.  Recently, I have been sharing some fairly simple cards on Saturdays.  Today, I decided to share a quick and easy card, PLUS a slightly stepped up version of the same card.  I have been embossing just about everything this week, so of course, the second card includes some heat embossing!


Quick and Easy Card MEASUREMENTS
 Thick Basic White Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Fresh Freesia ~ 3-1/2" x 2-7/8"
True Love Designer Series Paper ~ 1/2" x 2-1/2" (*2)
Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-3/4" x 3-3/8"


  1. Use the Fresh Freesia Stampin' Write Marker to make dots on the front of the Card Base.  Start with the fine tip end, then make a few more larger dots with the brush end.  Be careful not to press too hard when making dots...you don't want to mess up the tips of your marker.
  2. Stamp the sentiment on the piece of Basic White Cardstock.  
  3. Layer the Basic White with the sentiment on the Fresh Freesia CS.  
  4. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the Fresh Freesia to the front of the card.  Don't put the Dimensionals too close to the edge.
  5. Place Liquid Glue on the the back of the DSP strips, then carefully slide them under the Fresh Freesia, getting them as straight as possible. 

For the inside of this card, just add more dots with your Stampin' Write Marker to the corner. 


Stepped Up Card MEASUREMENTS
Fresh Freesia Card Base ~ 6-1/2" x 6-61/4", scored at 3-1/4"
True Love Designer Series Paper ~ 1/2" x 2-1/2" (*2) and 3/8" x 6" (inside)
Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 2-3/4" x 3-3/8"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 2-5/8" x 3-1/4" and 3" x 6" (inside)


  1. Color the flowers on the DSP with Stampin' Blends. 
  2. Use the dots stamp from Sweet Ice Cream and Versamark ink to create dots on two opposite corners on the front of the card.  Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder of the dots and set with the Heat Tool.  
  3. Stamp the sentiment on the piece of Basic White Cardstock.  
  4. Layer the Basic White with the sentiment on the Evening Evergreen CS.  
  5. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the Evening Evergreen to the front of the card.  Don't put the Dimensionals too close to the edge.
  6. Place Liquid Glue on the the back of the DSP strips, then carefully slide them under the Fresh Freesia, getting them as straight as possible.
