Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials


Happy Saturday!  Hopefully today is a happy day for you, full of crafting time and relaxation!
Today's card uses Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Perennials stamps and Perennials Dies.  The large 'happy' stamp in this set is my favorite.  I love the rest of the set too.  However, I'm going to tell you a secret.  Sometimes stamp sets that have a lot of parts and pieces like this one can overwhelm me a bit.  It helps me to see what other people are doing with the set, and also to just stamp some pieces, die cut them and play around until something clicks!  

I guess I have spent enough time with set, because today's card came together really quickly and the only pieces I had left over were two little leaves.  :)

To start, stamp 'happy birthday' and the smallest flowers on a piece of Basic White Cardstock, at least3-1/4" x 4-1/2". 
Then, stamp the rest of the flowers and leaves on another piece of Basic White Cardstock (scraps are great for things like this)
Now, die cut the pieces.  
For the rectangle, use the 3rd largest die from Stitched Rectangles.  
(You can also go ahead and use the largest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock for the inside.)
Use, your favorite adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals to attach all the pieces.

For the inside of the card, I decided to use the largest rectangle die to cut the piece of Basic White Cardstock so it will tie it in even more with the front of the card. 
After die cutting, stamp the large flower in the bottom corner. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card and get to be crafty soon!
Happy Stamping!
