Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Birthday Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month we are all creating projects with a “birthday” theme and I’m featuring the Framed Florets stamp set for my card.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Birthday Card

My card design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments #407.

I started by using Blending Brushes to apply Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay inks to a panel of Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP (Online Exclusive item available March 1).  I cut the panel into 3 pieces and then adhered the inked panels to panels of Coastal Cabana card stock with Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panels to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with Stampin’ Seal.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Coastal Cabana card stock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders and heat embossed it.

I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added three Coastal Cabana gems from the Glossy Dots Assortment pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then I inked a strip of Naturally Gilded DSP with Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana inks and a Blending Brush and adhered it to finish the inside of the card.
