Simple yet Special Happy Birthday Card!
Here's a simple yet very special birthday card I made for my cousin who turns 30 today! It look me just a few minutes but will be treasured for a long time - and it only uses only a few ingredients!
Ingredients: Artistry Blooms DSP, whisper white cardstock, crushed curry ink, stamp of your choice, liquid glue, sponge, and stamping dimensionals.
Recipe: Cut a piece of cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11 (that's half a piece of cardstock cut vertically down the middle). Score the 11 inch side at 2 3/4 from each end. Fold to meet the ends in the middle - this is called a gate fold. Your card will measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 - a regular card size. Cut four strips from the Artistry Blooms DSP: two pieces should measure 4 x 4 3/4 and two should measure 4 x 1/4. Place the DSP where as shown above and adhere using liquid glue. Cut two squares from whisper white cardstock measuring 3 x 3. Cut a piece from the same sheet of Artistry blooms at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4. Stamp Happy Birthday on one of the whisper white pieces oriented as a diamond, and stamp a small image below if you'd like (I used an old Paper Pumpkin set, but you can use anything). To color around the edge, first I dragged the edge over the stamp pad, then I used a sponge just around the edge to add more variation. Adhere the square of Artistry Blooms to the other whisper white cardstock, then adhere the stamped image perpendicular, using liquid glue. Adhere the square piece to the left side of the card only. To get the the Stampin' Dimensionals in the right spots, I placed two dimensionals on back of the square along the left side as it faces you, and two dimensionals along the right edge of the left gate.
That's it! Fast, easy, and still special. If you re-create the card please post it and tag stampingfunwithdonna.
