Celebrate with Flowers Happy Birthday Card. Stampin Birds Showcase Blog Hop. September 2021

 Good Morning Everyone,

It's the Stampin Birds Showcase Blog Hop today!! woo hoo. We have a selection of projects to inspire - not set along a theme so there's huge variety! So be sure to continue through the hop once you've taken a look at my project!

I chose to use the Celebrate with Flowers stamps et and I'll be honest, it's one of the first sets I ordered when the new catalogue came out but I haven't really used it much - don't know why, It's beautiful.

The fold is the same as a sample I saw in the catalogue but I've completely changed my decoration.



Evening Evergreen Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Soft Succulent Card Stock

1pc - 5 3/4" x 7/8"

2pc - 3" x 5 3/4"

Pale Papaya Card Stock

1pc - 1 1/2" x 4 5/8"


Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 3/4" x 5 5/8"

2pc - 2 7/8" x 4 3/8"

1pc - 1 3/8" x 4 1/2"


Take the Evening Evergreen Card stock a fold along the score line to create a standard card base, then trim off 1" from the right hand side. Make sure you only cut this from the card front otherwise you will just end up with a shorter card!

With youe Evening Evergreen ink, stamp the leaf image all over one of the larger pieces of basic white card stock and then layer onto a larger piece of soft succulent card stock. This needs to be adhered to the card front.

Stamp the happy birthday sententiment into the centre of the thin strip of basic white and add a leaf to the top and bottom, just to get rid of the white space. Layer this to the coordinating soft suucent strip of card stock and add this to your card. I found it easier to close the card up and then adhere this down to the inside of the back panel to get my placement just right.

Layer up the last larger pieces of basic white and soft succulent card stock and add this to the inside of the card, making sure that you can't see any of it when the card is closed.

Stamp the tall stem and leaf image onto the remaining piece of basic white, layer onto the Pale Papaya card stock and add to the centre of the card front.

Finally stamp three of the flower heads in Pale Papaya ink onto a scrap of Pale Papaya card stock. Fussy cut one so it's the full head, and then trim the other two so they are slightly smaller.

Add the full flower head to the top of the stem and then add the two smaller heads further down.

I hope you enjoyed todya's card, please contuine through the hop to see what else my team mates have been creating. Donna is up next...

  1. Vickie, nice card! I was thinking to cut the top card stock flap so I would see the wording "Happy Birthday" to show. Thanks for the inspiration. Do you post your work on You Tube or other sites?
