This lovely birthday card was created using the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set, Wildflower Path Stamp Set and the Rings of Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. Both the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set and the Rings of Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper are Sale-A-Bration items that you can earn for free. The Rings of Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper coordinates with the Ringed With Nature Bundle which can be found in the July-December Mini Catalog. Hurry, though…Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow!
I started with a white cardstock panel measuring 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ and stamped the leaf and berry image from the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set in the upper left and lower right in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. A Blender Pen was used to color in the images with Poppy Parade, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry inks. I chose the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote from the Wildflower Path Stamp Set as the sentiment for the center of this panel which was stamped in Poppy Parade ink.
A piece of the Rings of Love DSP was matted to a Poppy Parade cardstock mat, then this unit was adhered to the front of the card base. The stamped and colored white panel was also matted to a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock. I piece of Baker’s Twine was wrapped around this unit twice and tied with a bow. This unit was then centered over the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The same leaf and berry image was stamped onto the inside card panel as well as the envelope front and colored using the same inks as the card front panel. A piece of coordinating Rings of Love DSP was used to decorate the envelope flap. The card front was finished off with several Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.
I love a double-matted card! I think it adds a little something extra and the double matting combined with the beautiful image from the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set and Rings of Love DSP is the perfect touch.

Sale-A-Bration Countdown! Earn Double Honey Drop Points Now Through Aug 31
I’m offering double Honey Drop points for the Sale-A-Bration countdown – only two days remaining to earn double Honey Drop points with me. This offer ends on August 31, 2022!
You might be asking – what are Honey Drop points?
Qualifying customers can earn Honey Drop points from me as part of my Honeybee Rewards Program. Once you earn 16 Honey Drops you can earn products valued up to $40 from any current catalog from me. Here is how the double points work:
- Place an order in my online store between August 22 and August 31 to earn double Honey Drops.
- If you place an order of $25 (before shipping and any applicable tax) you will receive 2 Honey Drop points (instead of just one), for a $50 order you’ll earn 4 points, for a $75 order you’ll earn 6 points, and so on. Normally you would earn only 1 point for every $25 spent.
- Collect sixteen (16) Honey Drops and you can earn any product or products with a value up to $40 from any current catalog and the item will be mailed directly to you! You’ll receive free shipping, too!
- Each of your online orders must be for $25 or more for you to be eligible to earn double Honey Drop points (before Shipping and any applicable tax).
- And, it’s still Sale-A-Bration time so if you place at least a $50 order from me you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
- Don’t forget to use my current host code, AHPKF7WD, when placing orders. This qualifies you to receive a free thank you gift from me (if your order is over $150 don’t use the host code. You are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards but you’ll still get the free gift from me).
