Today is my niece Laura’s birthday. Laura is my cousin Lisa’s daughter and in my heart Lisa is like a sister to me and Laura like a niece. I wanted to share the birthday card I made for her.
This birthday card is pretty straight forward. I used the Stampin’ Up! retired stamp set Hello Blossoms. This is a take on an older card I made. I used Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink and card stock. Green brads and a Bow made from Baker’s Twine finishes this birthday card off. Laura LOVES frogs hence the Lucky Limeade.
Directions to make this card:
Pear Pizzazz Card Stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and score it at 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Stock 5″ x 3-3/4″ and 4-1/4″ x 3″
Blushing Bride Card Stock 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
I took my Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Markers and inked up the Hello Blossoms Stamp and stamped it on the smaller Whisper White piece of Card Stock. I didn’t quite center it. I stamped it a bit to the right, so I had some balance in the design when I put the bow on. I also didn’t want a solid inked image, so I went light with the markers.
I then inked up the Happy Birthday from the Bring on the Cake Stamp in Pear Pizzazz and stamped it under the Hello Blossoms. I lined it up to the left to have room for the one blossom I wanted to stamp at the end of the happy birthday.
I added some Green Galore Brads (retired) to each flower center.
Happy Birthday Laura!
Check back tomorrow for another button project. Oh, joy!
