Simple Stems Birthday Wishes – Stampin’ Up!

I used the Simple Stems and Blooming With Kindness stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a clean and simple birthday card.  My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #125.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) on a Soft Sky panel in VersaMark Ink.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.

I layered the stamped panel over a panel of Garden Green card stock, then adhered the panel to a Soft Sky card base with SNAIL.  I used the Secret Garden Framelits die to cut three sets of leaves from Garden Green card stock, then I stamped the flower image from the Simple Stems stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) three times in Soft Sky ink on a Whisper White panel.

I cut the largest flower out with the Secret Garden Framelits die, then cut the centers out of the two other flowers with my Paper Snips.  I layered the flowers pieces on top of each other, using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to the flower.

I adhered the leaf die cuts and flower to the card front with SNAIL, then added Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky and Garden Green Candy Dots (from the Regals, Brights and Subtles Candy Dot packs).  I finished the card front by adhering Pearl Basic Jewels and Rhinestone Basic Jewels as well.
