Dainty Flowers Birthday Cards by Secrets To Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

A new Make My Monday challenge is starting today and the theme is “Spring Colors.” Since the Dainty Flowers designer paper was perfect for this challenge, I decided to show you two cards I created during Sale-A-Bration, using it with Irresistible Blooms and Framed Florets. These cards were very easy to put together, which is why I love designer paper so much. Which one do you like best? Let me know in a comment!

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

My secrets for Card #1!

  • Firstly, this A2 card started with white cardstock, cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, and scored at 4-1/4.”
  • After that, I cut the Dainty Flowers floral patterned paper with the stitched rectangle die, then layered it onto the pretty Fresh Freesia paper, cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″.

And now, the fun part!

  • Once that was done, I stamped the sentiment from Framed Florets and cut it out with the oval die from Stitched Shapes.
  • After that, I stamped the flower from Framed Florets onto the Fresh Freesia paper and cropped it out with the coordinating die. Then, I stamped the leaves and cropped them out after coloring them with Blends.
  • I made a loopy bow (no knot) with ribbon over the center of the floral wreath paper and popped the sentiment over the top, then added the flower and leaves.
  • Finally, I placed a few Milky Dots to the flower and around the panel for a touch of bling.

Then, on the inside…

  • The inside was easily done with more patterned paper and a white cardstock panel for a personal message.
  • Then, I stamped the sentiment and and few flowers with more Milky Dots.

My Secrets for Card #2!

  • On to my second card, which was attempting one of those Triple Time layered cards but I totally didn’t want to cover up any more of the flowers so I stopped at two.
  • Firstly, after creating the A2 card base, I cut a piece of Dainty Flowers paper and cut out the middle with stitched Rectangle die. Then, I layered the large one onto Mossy Meadow cardstock and the smaller one was layered onto Blushing Bride cardstock that was cropped with a Deckled Rectangle die. Before they were glued together, both of the patterned paper pieces were sponged along the edges.
  • Then, I stamped the Irresistible Blooms sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink and cropped it out with the Double Oval Punch along with Mossy Meadow cardstock for the background layer.
  • Finally, I made a very simple bow with white baker’s twine and glued it down next to the sentiment.

Then, on the inside…

  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Flowering Tulips in Mossy Meadow and cropped out with the large stitched rectangle die.
  • Then, I layered it onto Blushing Bride cardstock and Mossy Meadow cardstock that was cropped with the Deckled Rectangle die.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
