Beautifully Happy Birthday Card by Secrets to Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

The last Alphabet Challenge starts today and the theme is “T is for Thanks.” Since we all need to have thank you cards, especially during the holidays, I know you will want to play along with us. For my card today, I am using a brand new Sale-A-Bration Beautifully Happy stamp set, which means that it’s free with a $100 order. What a great stamp set!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, this A2 card came together easily and quickly, using thick white cardstock for the card base, cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2.”
  • After that, I cut Soft Sea Foam cardstock to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ and ran it through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and adhered it to the cardbase.

And now, the fun part!

  • Once that was done, I stamped the floral stamp twice in Mossy Meadow ink. Then, I stamped the first one with the stamps that filled the flowers (Blushing Bride ink) and leaves (Mossy Meadow ink, second-generation stamping) and inked just the flowers on the second one. After that, I fussy cut the center flowers and popped them up with dimensionals.
  • After that, I cropped it out with a stitched rectangle die, then layered it onto Mossy Meadow cardstock.
  • Then, to even out the card front, I chose the Blushing Bride designer paper from Dainty Flowers and matted it with Mossy Meadow, as well.
  • Finally, I added a couple of the brass butterflies and a single pearl to the center of the flower.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
