Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Birthday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder Punch to create a birthday card to share with you today.  I did a video tutorial for making this card on my Facebook page yesterday.  I’ve also uploaded it to my YouTube Channel so you can view it there too!

My card design was inspired by the sketch from the Fusion Challenge this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ DSP to a Daffodil Delight card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I punched a panel of Animal Expedition DSP with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered the banner to the card front with SNAIL.

I stamped the lemon images from the Lemon Zest stamp set in DaffodIl Delight and Lemon Lime Twist inks (using a Sponge Dauber to remove the ink around the edge of the slice and then add ink back in with Lemon Lime Twist).  I punched the lemon images out with the Lemon Builder Punch and adhered the pieces together and to the card front with Glue Dots.  I punched the lemon slice out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and adhered it with Glue Dots to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and then cut it out with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front to finish it.

I adhered a strip of Gingham Gala DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL to finish the inside of the card.
