Stampin’ Up!: Moving Forward Birthday Card

Stampin' Up! Moving Forward, Lakeside Stamper Moving Forward

This card share was made at my last workshop using the Stampin’ Up! Moving Forward Stamp Set.  This card has a little twist in that we stamped the bicycle image and cut part of it out, so it would fit comfortably in the Hearts A Flutter heart. You’ll see what I mean…

Let’s get started:

Cut the following card stock sizes:

Very Vanilla at 10″ x 7″ and score it at 5, 4″ x 6″, 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″

Certainly Celery at 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″

Gumball Green at 3″ x 3″

On the 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece of Very Vanilla, stamp the bicycle image form the Moving Forward stamp set In Primrose Petals Ink. Stamp the flower image from the same stamp set in Marina Mist Ink. Take a craft knife and on a cutting mat, carefully cut out the bicycle’s big front wheel. Cut about half way around. This part of the wheel, will stick out over the edge of the Hearts A Flutter heart cut out.

Which leads me to the cutting of the heart.  Take the piece of Gumball Green and place the scallop heart die from the Hearts A Flutter Framelits in the center and run it through the BIG Shot.  For this card we used the negative cut. Save the Gumball Green heart for another project or you can even adhere it to the inside of the card. Place some SNAIL Adhesive along the front edge of the stamped Very Vanilla piece. Tuck the cut part of the wheel to the front of the heart and stick the two pieces of card stock together. You may have to cut a bit off the edge of the Very Vanilla. Then layer these two pieces onto the 3-1/4′ x 3-1/4″ piece of Certainly Celery card stock.


Now on the bottom of the 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla stamp the flowers in Primrose Petals Ink. Make sure you’ve cleaned your stamp after using the Marina Mist! Experience is speaking here. Just sayin’!


Layer the bicycle stamped piece onto the Very Vanilla using Dimensionals,  then cut a 5″ piece of 3/8″ Satin Stitched Gumball Green Ribbon and wrap it around this layer of Very Vanilla.  Layer the rest of the card as shown adding a greeting, knot and Basic Rhinestones and Pearls.
