As most of you know, I love big and bold sentiments. I like them in stamps and dies. This year, Stampin’ Up!® has a set of dies called Playful Alphabets. In a way, these is the best of all worlds. You can make any sentiment you want using these letters. They are small enough to even fit the word “celebrate” on a card. They are part of the Playing With Patterns Suite which includes the stamp set called Pattern Play, Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper, ribbon and embellishments.
This was a very simple card to make. I cut out the letters of “HAPPY” in Just Jade cardstock. I didn’t have to line them up to cut them because I was just going to use the letters. I then cut two triangles out of Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper using the new Stitched Triangles Dies. I used the flower side for the triangles and then added little strips from the other side of the paper along the edges. Don’t you just love how Designer Series Paper is two-sided? If you don’t like one side you can use the other. The only problem I run into is when I love both sides and then have to choose.
The word birthday is from the stamp set called A Wish For Everything.
As a side note, we should have arrived in Nashville to our new house yesterday. I wrote this post a couple of weeks ago so I wouldn’t have to worry about unpacking all my stamping products the second I got home. Although we hated leaving the cottage, we are very excited to start our new life here. Hopefully I will meet some fellow stampers soon so I can have someone to stamp with.
I love this card, Susan! The paper is gorgeous, and I love the way you used both sides. Great layout. Enjoy your new home and spending times with the “southern” grands!
That paper is gorgeous – you made the right choice letting it ‘shine’ 🙂 This layout is perfect for doing just that.
