A Birthday Card That’s a Work of HEART, and NEW Sale-A-Bration FREE Options!

I needed a birthday card for my oldest daughter, who happens to have an Art degree. I wanted my card to be special and elegant. Here’s what I created with a mix of older and brand new products:

I started with a card base of Basic White measured at 8 1/2″ by 11″, scored at 4 1/4″. I cut a layer of Basic White at 4″ by 5 1/4″ and then cut a Deckled Rectangle out of the panel. I then stamped a sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set, and ran the single panel through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to give it some pretty texture.

I cut two flowers from the Meadows dies with the beautiful new Fine Shimmer Specialty Paper. I LOVE it! I then cut a panel of the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper at 2 1/2″ by 3 3/4″. I fit the two shimmer flowers behind the frame the way I wanted them (I actually trimmed one) and used glue dots to fix them to the back of the frame. Then I attached the panel of DSP to the back of the frame.

I then popped up the whole frame piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Pastel Iridescent Gems, and I was done. Think of the possibilities with these beautiful papers and the Meadows Dies. You could do all kinds of combinations.

In fact, I created another card with a different color scheme. This time, I stamped right on the DSP for a different look:

  1. Mary,
    All my years looking at cards and using SU products, these are the best 2 cards I’ve ever seen from a demonstrator.
    The gold flower one is stunningly elegant. The color options with this style are unlimited. Less is more and keeping the design simple always gives the best results!
    Appreciate seeing a card that speaks to my style.
