Today is MY birthday, but I have a friend who has a birthday tomorrow (and I don’t think she looks at my blog!) so this is the card I made for her! I was glancing through some cards I had made recently, and I LOVED a card I made with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and a watercolor background and I LOVED a card I made with this same Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. So I just combined the two ideas!
The card is made with Basic Black Cardstock so you do need to put a piece of Whisper White Cardstock inside so you can stamp or write a greeting or note. I glued a strip of this designer paper to the side of the Whisper White inside the card so I could decorate the inside a little bit. There is a layer of Powder Pink underneath the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.
The greeting, of course, is just the Happy Birthday die cut! I love the script, the size and everything about it! Glue it down with just tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Or try the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.
I think the new Powder Pink 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon is just beautiful with this designer paper pattern and the card! So soft and such a pretty pink! I wrapped the strip of ribbon around the layer before adhering to the card. Then I tied the bow separately with another piece of ribbon and attached it to that strip of ribbon with a few Mini Glue Dots . Sometimes that is easier than trying to tie a perfect bow with the whole piece of ribbon around the card!
I think this Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper is actually a whole lot of lovely!! I suggest you put a package or two on your next order! And if you ever make birthday cards (surely you do!) I would also get the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies!
Since today is my birthday, I’m giving YOU the gift! I’m celebrating all weekend (why not?!) so if you place a Stampin’ Up! order of $25.00 or more (before tax and shipping, of course!), I will send YOU a little grab bag of “stuff”! And who doesn’t need more “stuff”?! Some might be new, some might be retired, but it will be a surprise! Order today through Sunday, August 13, 2017 at midnight.
