Stampin’ Up!: Papaya Collage Birthday Card

Stampin' Up! Papaya Collage

Hello, Stampers!


Today’s share is a birthday card made from the new Stampin’ Up! Papaya Collage stamp set.  This timeless vintage look is so “HOT” right now. The frame and images in this set can be used in numerous ways on many different projects. Below is a birthday card created with the set.

Stampin' Up! Papaya Collage


Here’s a quick summary of what was done.


The card base was made from a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″, piece of Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The frame from the Papaya Collage stamp set was stamped in Soft Suede and cut out. The center of the frame was stamped randomly with the leaves from the Papaya Collage set in the new Stampin’ Up! color Gumball Green.

The rose was inked with Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green Markers and cut out.


The butterfly was also stamped in Soft Suede Ink, cut out and a string of Basic Pearls was adhered as the body.


Two 1/8″ strips of Whisper White Card Stock were placed along the right and bottom edges of the card. The frame and butterfly were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The frame was embellished with Basic Rhinestones and the Birthday Message is from the Petite Pairs stamp set which was stamped in Raspberry Ripple ink
