 Thoughtful Wishes for a
fun fold birthday card

When I saw this card on Lisa Ann Bernard's blog, Queen B Creations, I knew I had to make one. Also, Lisa has a great video that is easy to follow.  If you would like to see her card and watch her video, please click Here, post of 9/8/2023.  
I used a retired stamp set for my letters, Sophisticated Serifs, and the Postage Stamp punch I used is retired, however, other alphabet stamps, dies or punches would work great.


Supplies I used:
  • 1- 4 1/4 x 11 Coastal Cabana, scored at 5 1/4 & 10 1/2.
  • 1- 4 1/4 x 10 1/2 Coastal Cabana, scored at 5 1/4.
  • 2- 1 1/2 x 10 1/2 Granny Apple Green, scored at 5 1/4 & 2 5/8.
  • The five pieces of 5 x 4 DSP is from Dandy Designs (on the retirement list at a reduced cost).😊 See it Here.
  • I stamped the letters with Shaded Spruce ink on Basic White and cut them out with the Postage Stamp Punch and adhered each to a 2 1/8 x 1 1/2 layer of Shy Shamrock.
  • Front:  Basic White is 1 1/2 x 5.  Letters from Sophisticated Serifs are stamped in Shaded Spruce and backed with a 1 5/8 x 5 piece of Shy Shamrock.  The flowers and vines behind this piece are from Thoughtful Wishes Dies, cut out with Granny Apple Green, Petunia Pop, and Basic White.  
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

  Timeless Charm Bundle & Unbounded Love


I do not think I am alone when I say it is confusing to keep up with current and retired products from Stampin' Up!  Some are on-line only, some are in the catalog only, and some products are in the catalog and on-line. So, I truly did not realize that the Timeless Charm Bundle was retired when I made this card. 
The good news, any stamp set with a flower would work great for this technique. 
So much fun, so little time.

Recipe:
  • The 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 base of Pecan Pie cardstock is scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The 5 1/4 x 4 layer of Peach Pie is embossed with the Dashing Design folder.
  • The flower from Timeless Charm is stamped on a 4 1/2 x 3 Basic White layer and colored with Peach Pie and Old Olive Blends.
  • I sponged a 4 1/8 x 2 1/2 piece of Basic White with Calypso Coral ink and glued it to a 4 1/4 x 2 5/8 piece of Calypso Coral.  
  • I used the flower die from the Timeless Charm dies to cut out the flower aligning the die over the stamped image.
  • I stamped the words from Unbounded Love with Tuxedo Memento Black ink and added a Brushed Brass Butterfly.
  • I added Dimensionals to this combination and adhered it to the 4 1/2 x 3 Basic White piece lining the cutout with the stamped flower.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 So Sincere Stamp Set & Layered Florals Embossing Folder

http://
My main focus for this card is the Layered Florals embossing folder.  So easy and works with many color combinations.

Recipe:
  • The 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 base of Shy Shamrock cardstock is scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The layer of Shaded Spruce is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The 5 x 3 3/4 Soft Seafoam layer is embossed with the Layered Florals 3D folder.  Then I used a Sponge Dauber & Shaded Spruce ink to "color" the debossed side of the Soft Seafoam cardstock.
  • I adhered this layer to the Shaded Spruce, and this combination to the Shy Shamrock base.
  • I cut out a 2 3/4 Night of Navy circle with a Spotlight on Nature die.
  • I stamped words from So Sincere in Night of Navy on Basic White and punched it out a 2 3/8" circle punch.  I added this to the Night of Navy circle with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added all to the card front with dimensionals.
  • To finish off my card, I added three Ombre Matte Decorative Dots
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

Peaceful Boughs Bundle


I offer Creative Card-Making classes in my home each month and starting with July I add a Christmas card as part of the array of five cards.

I used the retired Peaceful Boughs Bundle, Soft Suede and Shaded Spruce cardstock and ink for this card.

Recipe:
  • The 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 base of Soft Suede cardstock is scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The layers of Shaded Spruce are: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8; 3 1/4 x 3 1/4; and 3 3/4 x 2.
  • The layers of Very Vanilla are: 5 1/4 x 3 7/8; 3 1/8 x 3 1/8; and 3 5/8 x 1 7/8.
