Yesterday was my friend, Laura’s birthday. Laura is such a sweet person. She is a stamper, like me, and her cards are so amazing. She is so talented.
I made this birthday card for Laura. I knew I had to use the sentiment from Slim Sayings on her card because she truly is one of a kind. Laura is a simple stamper, too so I knew I didn’t want to make something too complicated. I decided to use the bundle called Daffodil Daydream. This bundles includes the stamp set of the same name and the Daffodil Dies. If you purchase them in a a bundle you can save 10%. I inked up the stamp using my Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Pool Party and Granny Apple Green Stampin Write Markers. I used my Stamparatus for this. I first colored the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink, huffed on the stamp (which basically means to breathe heavily on it to reactivate the ink and then stamped it on Basic White card stock. I had to do this a couple of times because sometimes it is hard to see all the spots that need coloring. That is why the Stamparatus is so perfect because you can stamp in the exact same spot over and over. After I was happy with the leaves, I colored each of the flowers separately and stamped them in place. Then I cut the bouquet out using the coordinating die.
I stamped the sentiment from Slim Sayings in Flirty Flamingo ink and cut out each word separately. I adhered a piece of the Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper to a Basic White card base. You can get this DSP for free during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order. It is a 6″ x 6″ pack with 48 sheets of beautiful bright colors. I added the little sliver of Flirty Flamingo card stock along the edge. Lastly, I tied a piece of White Baker’s Twine around the stems and adhered it to the card base using Dimensionals.
Happy birthday, Laura. I hope you had a great day and I look forward to seeing you this summer!
Susan, this is a delightful card. I love the layout and the way you’ve placed the sentiment.
I love that “multicolored” daffodil. It’s perfect with the paper and the sentiment. Such a lovely card!
