Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays card

Hi and welcome!  Today's card features all five of the 2021-2023 In Colors.  It also uses the Stockings Dies, which is retiring January 3rd, or when supplies run out.  I love that this die set can be used for more than just Christmas cards.  Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge 536 inspired this card. 

Card Base ~ Evening Evergreen Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Large Scrap of Basic White Cardstock 
Scraps of 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper

Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the sentiment with Fresh Freesia Ink on the large scrap of Basic White Cardstock.  Use the largest die from Stockings Dies to cut it out. 
  • Die cut several gifts from 2021-2023 In Color DSP.  Then die cut several bows from scraps of Evening Evergreen and Fresh Freesia Cardstock. 
  • Use Liquid Glue to attach the bows to the gifts. 
  • Cut three 4" pieces of ribbon.  Fold one end in half, then cut off the tip at an angle to make a banner. 
  • Use Tear & Tape to attach the ribbon to the front of the card so that the banner ends are even.  (Cut off any of the excess ribbon hanging over the top of the card.)
  • Attach the sentiment piece to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Adhere two of the gifts with Liquid Glue, then add the third with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Adhere the Inside Layer to the inside of the card.  Then, glue two of the gifts to the lower right corner, as shown.

The July-December 2021 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon!  It's always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin' Up! catalog take a trip to retirement.  But, I'm looking forward to all the amazing new products on their way - and hope you are, too!
