One of my goals for the year is to send more cards “just because”. I think we could all use a little encouragement now and then! Nothing quite brightens your day like a handmade greeting card in your mailbox. Wouldn’t you just love to receive this Birthday Blooms card?
Whisper White: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″
Watermelon Wonder: 3-3/8″ x 4-5/8″
Pool Party card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
I started this card by stamping a full sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Whisper White card stock with the large flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I’m in love with my Stamp-a-ma-jig, so I did use it to get the flowers spaced exactly how I wanted them.
Once the entire sheet was stamped with flowers, I used the January One Sheet Wonder Card Club Template to cut it up and make it into 8 different cards. For this one, I created a thin mat with Watercolor Wonder card stock to frame those pretty flowers and then wrapped it with Pool Party Cotton Ribbon and added a small greeting.
Super easy, yet it looks quite elegant doesn’t it! I’m sure you can take these dimensions and make your own beautiful card using a pretty piece of paper you already have or one you stamp up. When you do, please share it with us over in our Facebook community. We love to see what you are making!!
