Do you see the flower peeking out from the inside of my card?  Do you stamp the inside of your card?  That simple touch can really set your cards apart.  It takes such a small amount of time and really makes your cards stand out.  Why not try it on the next card you create?  Are you inspired to create your own Floral Happy Birthday Card?

Hydrangea “For You” Card

Hydrangea For You Card

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life.  Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

A Touch of Ink Happy Birthday Card

A Touch of Ink Happy Birthday Card

Hummingbirds are such amazing creatures!  A few fascinating facts about hummingbirds:  only found in the Americas, hummingbirds cannot walk, the smallest hummingbird species weighs less than a dime, and most beat their wings 60 to 80 times per second.  And I thought they were only pretty.  Hopefully, my “A Touch of Ink” Happy Birthday card showcases their beauty!

Simply thankful for all the good things

Simply Thankful card

Let’s make a Simply Thankful card.  Sometimes we just need to stop and take the time to be thankful for all the good things.  With everything that is currently going on in the world, being thankful can be difficult.  However, if we take a moment and ponder the small blessings that touch our lives every day, we can become simply thankful.

Simply thankful for all the good things

I am so looking forward to Autumn and all the beautiful colors of that season.  For this card, I used Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, and Bumblebee inks from Stampin’ Up!  I also used the Rooted in Nature and Country Home stamp sets and the Ornate Frames and Nature’s Root dies.

Simply thankful for all the good things

When I first started on my card making journey, I never decorated the inside of my cards.  Despite that misstep, I have learned just as in life, that often the inside is much more important.  We choose the right sentiment, write the heartfelt message, and add a little something to reflect the front of our card.  These steps make our cards more memorable and often touch the hearts of our recipients. 

 

Card Dimensions

  • Basic Black (card base) — 4-1/4″ x 11″; score and fold at 5-1/2″
  • Very Vanilla (1st layer) — 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic Black (2nd layer) — 5/8″ x 5-1/4″
  • Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Bumble Bee (scraps) — die cut with Ornate Frames die
  • Very Vanilla (scraps) — stamp leaves — die cut with Nature’s Root die
  • Very Vanilla (inside) — 4″ x 5-1/4″

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card.  I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.

Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky.  However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it.  Did you notice the beautiful embossed background?  I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder.  One of my very favorites!

I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards.  In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower.  Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.  

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride?  It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together.  I love my simple, elegant card.  Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.
