Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Birthday Card


The Peaceful Moments stamp set is another sentiment set that can be added to almost any other Stampin' Up! product(s) for a great card!  I love that the 'Happy Birthday' stamp in this set fits so perfectly in the Double Oval Punch. 

This card was inspired by As You See It's Challenge #257.  This is a great challenge, perfect for this time of year!  

Crumb Cake Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Crumb Cake Layer ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Basic White ~ 4" x 5-1/4" (inside), scrap for sentiment
Just Jade ~ scrap at least 1-1/4" 2-1/4" 
Bumblebee~ 4" x 3"

  • Use the Checks Embossing Folder to emboss the right side of the Crumb Cake Layer (it helps to line the bottom of the cardstock up with the line on the embossing folder)
  • Cut out 2 of each of the "wheat/grass" pieces from Sunflowers Dies
  • Use Glue Dots to attach the ends of the Gingham Ribbon behind the Crumb Cake Layer
  • Attach the Crumb Cake Layer to the Card Base with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamp 'Happy Birthday', using Just Jade ink, on the scrap of Basic White CS.  Then, punch out with the Double Oval Punch.  Use the same punch to punch a scalloped oval in Just Jade CS.  Glue the smooth oval to the scalloped oval. 
  • Turn the ovals upside down, and add 3 Stampin' Dimensionals, as shown below. 
  • Place 3 of the 'wheat/grass' pieces as you want them on the Stampin' Dimensionals (after removing the dimensional backings).  
  • Add a touch of glue to the back of the 'wheat/grass' pieces.  Then, attach to the front of the card, over the ribbon. 
  • Tie a small bow with Linen Thread.  Then, ball up 1/2 of a glue dot and use it to attach the ribbon just under the sentiment. 

For the inside of the card, glue the Basic White inside layer to the inside of the card.  Finish by gluing the final piece of 'wheat/grass' to the lower corner, as shown. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!

  1. Lovely! Popping up the embossed panel from the card front really makes a difference to the overall look while the pop of colour from the wheat really draws the eye to the sentiment. Thank you for joining the recipe challenge at As You See It.

  2. This is such a clean looking card, but with such great personality! I love how you left an unembossed margin on the left side of the Crumb Cake layer! And the colours you chose work together so well. Thanks for cooking up our recipe at As You See It Challenges!
