Scrap Happy Birthday Card

Welcome to the Flowers edition of the Sweet Stampede Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing many of the wonderful floral stamp sets and punches in the catalog. Perfect for Spring crafting!

I'm sure none of you can relate (eyes rolling--lol), but I have a lot of leftover scraps of Designer Series Paper that are too pretty to toss out. I decided to use strips of this paper to make a scrap-happy Birthday card.

  • I first created my card base by scoring and folding a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock in half.

  • Next, I selected and cut 3/4" x 5-1/4" strips of coordinating colors from my leftover scraps of Brights DSP that were bright and cheery to go with some Daisy flower punch-outs and notched one end of each strip to form banners. 

  • The sentiment layer has one strip of 1" x 4-1/4" coordinating cardstock and another strip of 3/4" x 4-1/4" cardstock in a lighter color.

  • The sentiment I used came from the Piece of Cake stamp set, but can easily be substituted for your own sentiment image. 

  • For the daisy, I used my Bone Folder between my thumb and forefinger to gently curl each petal. I then nestled the two daisy punch-outs together with the petals facing in opposite directions and adhered it to a medium scalloped circle. 

  • I adhered one of the DSP strips inside the card to carry the color and pattern inside for added fun.

  • The color combinations are endless for making lots of these cards! 

    You can also mix and match elements in the circle die-cut for a different look. Here I added punched-out balloons.

    Thanks for brightening my day by stopping by. Keep on hopping along to check out my Sweet Stampede friend Britney Vanderlaan's blog at Hope Paper Creations...
