Happy Blooming Birthday!

Sunday, April 7, 2019

Hello there! Tonight I am sharing a card that I made for this week's Seize the Birthday challenge.

I received the Simon Says Stamp April card kit the other day and when I was looking through the patterned paper I knew it would be perfect for this challenge's topping which is "Spring".

Y'all, patterned paper scares me. I don't really use it except for a little piece here or there or a background behind a panel so making this card was something new for me. 

I started by cutting the "Happy Bloomng Birthday!" sentiment from the patterned paper. From another piece of the patterned paper I used my paper trimmer to cut the light wood grain pieces. Then I trimmed a piece of the flowered patterned paper with the green background. Using a border die I cut two borders and adhered them on either side of the flowered paper. I adhered all of those pieces to my card front. I finished by making the sentiment piece into a tag by punching a hole in the top, adding a piece of white ribbon, and wrapping some twine around it. I made the bow separately and glued it on with some Glossy Accents.

My Supplies:
Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders
Paper: Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse double sided papers, SSS Ivory, PTI White Stamper's Select

Thank you coming by! 


  1. If this is new to you, keep it up. I adore the gentle and light card that you made with just a strip of patterned paper. Very much a Spring look to it.
    Thanks for joining in the fun at Seize the Birthday.
