Stampin' Up! Forever Lovely Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

And I do wish you a lovey day! It’s almost spring and it’s time to start making pretty floral birthday cards. That’s what we did this past weekend at my card classes and I want to share one of the cards with you today!

Pretty Pointer: To create a simple floral background, stamp a flower lightly in a diagonal pattern from left to right across your background panel. Here a flower from the Botanical Bliss stamp set was used with Petal Pink ink. In order to give it a “fade to background” look, I stamped off before actually stamping the background piece. That means that I inked the stamp, then stamped once on a side piece of paper, and then stamped on the background piece. It gives a lighter image which is just what I wanted.

A 1″ strip of Painted Seasons dsp is adhered 2/3rd’s of the way down the background piece and a ribbon was then tied around in a bow. The sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set was stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink and then cut with a die from the Stitched Label Framelits and adhered over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Something exciting happened in my family over the weekend…my youngest daughter had a BIG birthday and we celebrated with a fun party! Her gift was a money tree! Have you ever heard of a money tree? As a crafter I really enjoyed putting it together and wanted to share it with you 🙂


Thank you for stopping by today!
