Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Birthday Card – #simplestamping

Pretty doesn’t need to be complicated! This easy-to-create project is great for beginner crafters or experienced crafters alike! This card was created using only ink and paper and stamps from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set.

I started off by stamping the sentiments at the top left of a Basic White panel. The “Sending” sentiment was stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink and the “Birthday Wishes” sentiment was stamped in Highland Heather.

Along the bottom of the panel, I stamped three stems in Old Olive ink and equally spaced these stems across the panel. The stem on the left does not have any flower blooms. The center stem was stamped with two small flowers in Highland Heather ink and Daffodil Delight centers. The stem on the right was stamped with a large flower in Sweet Sorbet ink with a Daffodil Delight center. The thin, multi-petaled flowers were used to fill in between the taller flower stems. This flower was first stamped in Highland Heather, then I stamped again in Gorgeous Grape ink, making sure to vary the height of the blooms and to allow some of the Highland Heather blooms in the back to show.

The completed, stamped panel was adhered to a mat in Daffodil Delight then the panel was adhered to the card front using liquid glue.

Stamping on the inside panel was kept simple. The single-flower stem was stamped onto the lower left of the inside panel and the large flower was stamped in Sweet Sorbet with the center of the flower stamped in Daffodil Delight. This panel was also adhered to a Daffodil Delight mat, then adhered to the inside of the card.

The same stem and flower that was stamped on the inside panel was stamped onto the envelope front. Just the flower and flower center were stamped onto the envelope flap.

I hope you enjoyed today’s #simplestamping card! I had fun creating it! If you would like to download, save or print the pdf tutorial for this card, you can click on the image below.
