Happy Birthday (Vintage Vogue)

Today, April 2nd, is my sister Kim's birthday. This is the card I gave her and she really liked it so I thought I would share it with you!

Then next few cards I will be posting will be using a similar color palette:
Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, and Pale Plum.

To Make This Card

  • Create standard card in Barely Banana.
  • Cut 4 x 5-1/4 Close to Cocoa and use the Big Shot with the Polka Dotted Textured Impressions Folder.
  • Use the Corner Rounder Punch on two opposite sides, and the new Scallop Trim Corner punch on the other two.
  • Wrap Chocolate Chip Ribbon around the front of the card, adhere in the back.
  • Stamp greeting in Chocolate Chip and mat on Barely Banana paper.
  • Stamp and cut out 3 small flowers from the Vintage Vogue stamp set with Barely Banana ink.
  • Stamp and cut out 1 small flower and 1 large flower in Pale Plum using the Vintage Vogue stamp set.
  • Stamp and color a few leaves in Mellow Moss.
  • Using a sponge Dauber, rub in Chocolate Chip ink and dab along the edges (like the sponging technique).
  • Pierce all the flowers and place Vintage Brads through them.
  • Adhere to flowers to the Close to Cocoa paper using Stampin' Dimensionals or by punching though the Close to Cocoa cardstock.
  • Adhere greeting with Stampin' Dimensionals on a slant.
  • Adhere Close to Cocoa panel using SNAIL Adhesive.
