I love this Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and the whole Birthday Memories Suite of products in the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog, so I thought I would make this card for a friend’s birthday. It was a “big” birthday for her and I debated what kind of special card to make for her. I just thought she would like this “vintage” look kind of card.
The card base is the new Powder Pink Cardstock, randomly stamped with the little bouquet in the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Stamp Set with the same color ink. This gives a little bit of interest in the background without taking away from the focal point. I used a piece of Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon wrapped around the card.
The cute little girl is die cut from the Birthday Memories Paper with one of the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies that fits the girl! Also, the red polka dot package is die cut! The other little package I just cut out by hand with my Paper Snips. Something new that we can use the framelits to die cut images on the designer paper! And very handy!
I also stamped the envelope with a birthday cake in Powder Pink. Stampin’ Up! has the best envelopes! Try the Whisper White Medium Envelopes! Once you do, you’ll never go back to ordinary envelopes for your precious cards! I can identify them by feel if I get a Stampin’ Up! envelope in the mail!!
And here is a glimpse of the inside of the card!
I just die cut another character on the designer paper and adhered him inside the card on a piece of Whisper White! So fun! I wrote a note to my friend saying we weren’t getting older, just “nostalgic”! I knew she would enjoy the “vintage” characters!
Take a look at the Birthday Memories Suite in the Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and see if you can resist ordering it for making some fun cards and projects!
