Fitting Florets & Framed Occasions Happy Birthday Card. Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop November 2022

  Good Evening Everyone

Today I'm blog hopping with the fabulous Stamping INKspiration ladies and we have a colour challenge and it's ALL greens. Now I love a good green, but i'll be honest I struggled with how to put a prominently green card together. So I decided to keep it simple, choosing only Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Garden Green from the mix. I'm actually really happy with how it turned out, What do you think?


Garden Green Card Stock

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

Basic White Card Stock

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

1pc - scrap

Fitting Florets DSP

1pc - 4" x 3 3/4"

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

3 fussy cut flowers

Layering Designs Vellum

1pc - 1 1/2" x 6" approx


Take the Garden Green card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base.

Add this think 1/4" of DSP along the bottom of the long side of the basic white piece (holding horizontally) then adhere to the inside of your card base.

Ink up the leaf image in garden green ink and stamp three images in a cluster towards the left.

Take your strip of vellum and lay over the DSP diagonally just off centre. By cutting this piece quite a bit longer than the DSP, you can fold over each end and secure it down with tape behind, meaning that there's no adhesive to hide on the front. Which means you are free to place wherever you chose - rather than being at the mercy of the showing adhesive! haha

On a scrap of Basic White stamp the hexagon outline and the sentiment in Garden Green ink. Trim the hexagon down, with it being straight lines it's easy enough the use a pair of snips, but there is a coordinating hexagon shape in the Beautiful Shapes Dies that fits perfectly if you would prefer.

Take this hexagon and the three fussy cut flowers and arrange in the centre of your card front, making sure that the flowers overlap the stamped leaves, and the hexagon sits over both some vellum and the DSP below.

Finally add a pearl to the centre of each flower.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today as much as I enjoyed the challenge of creating it. Please take a few moments to continue through the hop. There will be lots and lots of inspiration for you using this colour combination. Head to Tricia's Blog first by following the next button below.
