I used the Stampin’ Up! Calming Camellia stamp set, the host exclusive Sale-a-bration stamp set, to create a birthday card to share with you today. I did a video tutorial for this card on Facebook Live yesterday and you can see it here. You can also see the video on YouTube here.
My card was inspired by Inspire.Create.Challenges #107.
I started by stamping the flower image from the Calming Camellia stamp set (Sale-a-bration host exclusive stamp set available with an order of $300+) in Soft Sea Foam ink repeatedly across a panel of Basic White card stock. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and then adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the flower image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on a panel of Basic White card stock and then used Sponge Daubers to add Pale Papaya and So Saffron inks to the stamped image and then cut it out with one of the Encircled In Beauty Dies. I adhered the die cut panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Basic White card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders and heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the openings in the Messages Die and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front to finish it.
I stamped the flower image from the Calming Camellia stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on a panel of Basic White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

Does your scratchy old cutting plate make indentations and marks in your paper when you run it through from the scratches?
It leaves some marks on the back of the the die cuts, but nothing that shows through on the front. 🙂
Is your top plate a new one or does it have scratches on it too. My problem is if my plates are too scratched, they leave marks on my die cuts.
My top plate is a “clean” one that I don’t cut on. The one on the bottom is the one that I cut with, the one on the top is always uncut so it doesn’t leave marks. 🙂
Thank you for that explanation!
Absolutely gorgeous!!! The video makes this look like an easy card to make
It’s super simple! Hope that you’ll try it! 🙂
