Blooming with Kindness: Birthday Card

Blooming with Kindness HeaderHi, Stampers & Crafters!


This Blooming With Kindness Birthday Card we made at one of my workshops. You can take the basic layout and make up the card in other colors. But, I have to tell you I love how the Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade look together. This stamp set is one of those “go to” stamp sets. I love the flower and greetings. The flowers can be colored, stamped in different colors or simply high-lighted like the ones on this card.Blooming with Kindness

Here’s how to make this Blooming With Kindness card:


1.   For the card base cut a 7″ x 10″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock. Score it at 5″ For the two other Whisper White layers cut a 4″ x 6″ piece and a 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece


2.   Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper to 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″


3.   Cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece of Wisteria Wonder (now all your layers are cut)


4.  On the 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White, stamp the flower image from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set in Wisteria Wonder Ink.
