Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends stamp set to create my project for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it.

Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:

I started by adhering a panel from the Hand-Penned DSP (on sale for 15% off) to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I cut another panel of the Hand-Penned DSP with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut the rectangle into two pieces and then adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Seal so that there was about 1/2″ gap between them.

I stamped the sentiments from the Create With Friends photopolymer stamp set in Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron inks on a panel of Basic White card stock.  I used one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the panel and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

I cut panels of Blushing Bride, Pale Papaya and Mint Macaron card stocks with dies from the Penned Flowers Dies and then adhered the die cuts to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added three Mint Macaron gems from the Genial Gems pack to finish the card front.

I adhered two strips of the Hand-Penned DSP to a panel of Basic White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this project, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.

  1. Card turned out to be a gorgeous layout. this cardstock is so lovely and looks great displayed for a front on cards

  2. I love the colors you chose and the layout is perfect for this stamp set. I especially love that the flowers were die cut for a little bolder feel with the sentiment. So pretty.
