Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

I’m excited to be participating in my very first Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

The theme for today’s Blog Hop is “Birthday”. My card for today’s Hop was created using the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set, and the beautiful Perfectly Penciled 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper in classic black and white. I selected a sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set which is highlighted by an oval frame from the Fabulous Frames Dies. Card details, including measurements, can be found on the project sheet which is linked towards the bottom of this post.

I started off with a card base in Basic Black. I adhered a piece of the Perfectly Penciled paper in the polka dot pattern to a Basic White mat, then adhered this to the card front.

A second Basic White panel was used for stamping the flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set. The four corners of the panel were cut to reveal more of the gorgeous designer series paper. The flower image was shaded using Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils in Basic Black and Basic Gray to provide a little dimension to the image. I then adhered this panel to the card front.

I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. I used the oval frame die from the Fabulous Frames Dies to cut out the image. The oval was adhered directly to the stamped white panel, then Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to adhere the oval frame to the card front.

To finish off the card front a simple bow was tied using Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and adhered vertically to the oval frame. A straight line of Matte Black Dots runs diagonally across the stamped panel from the upper left to the lower right.

The inside card panel was stamped with an additional sentiment and the small flower image from the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set adorns the lower right and upper left corners of the panel.

A coordinating piece of Perfectly Penciled DSP was added to the envelope flap and the small flower image was stamped on the lower right front of the envelope.
