Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Using Black Memento Ink, stamp the large floral image and the smaller flower and 1 set of the leaves on the scrap Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock .  Color these images using Stampin’ Blends.  I used Petal Pink, Soft Succulent and Daffodil Delight.  Using the Cottage Flowers Dies, die cut these images.
  4. Using Black Memento Ink Pad, stamp the leaves repeatedly on a 5” length of the Natural Finish ⅞” Ribbon. 
  5. Stamp the sentiment on the ½” strip of Petal Pink with Memento Black Ink Pad and cut the left edge at an angle.
  6. Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere
    1. the Evening Evergreen to your Very Vanilla folded card base.
    2. the Petal Pink layer to your card
    3. then the Abigail Rose DSP panel to the Petal Pink layer.
  7. Cut the left edge of the Ribbon at an angle and use Tear & Tape to attach to the lower edge of the card leaving about ⅝” at the bottom of the DSP showing and even with the left edge of the Petal Pink panel.
  8. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere
    1. the large floral die cut image towards the lower left of the card. 
    2. the smaller flower to the upper right of the card. 
  9. Use Stampin’ Seal to tape flat the die cut leaves slipping them under the smaller flower.
  10. Adhere the Sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  11. Embellish with 3 Rustic Metallic Adhesive backed dots.
  12. Stamp and decorate the inside and attach with Stampin’ Seal.
  13. Decorate your envelope.
  14. Lovely! Who will you send this birthday wish to?
