Stampin' Up! Swirly Frames Birthday Card


Hi there!  Happy Thursday!  Today's card uses some great stamps, but also some fantastic colors!  I love these two colors, but for some reason just don't use them often.  I was flipping through the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog again when I found the inspiration for this card.  Basically, I switched out a stamp set, dies, and changed the colors!

Highland Heather Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White ~ 4-1/8" x 2-3/4" AND 4" x 5-1/4" (inside) and a scrap for the flower
Smoky Slate ~ approx. 4-1/2" x 3-1/4"

1.  Stamp the large rectangle from Swirly Frames in Smoky Slate ink
2.  At the top of the Basic White, leaving room for the Smoky Slate frame, 
stamp the line w/dots in Highland Heather, then stamp again without reinking. 
3. Repeat step 2 on the bottom of the Basic White, again leaving room for the frame
4. Stamp the flower.  I stamped the outline.  Then I stamped off once before stamping the the second part of the stamp. 
5.  Stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate
6.  Use two Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the frame.  
7.  Fussy cut around the flower with Paper Snips.  
(You could use the coordinating dies, but you will get a closer cut if you trim it yourself)
8. Attach the layers with adhesive of your choice.  
I used Stampin' Dimensionals under the rectangles.
9.  Add a fun element to the center of the flower.

Happy Stamping!
