Bumblebee Birthday Card

Birthday card with Bumblebee

Today, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) does most of the work on this Bumblebee Birthday Card! By having DSP, Ribbon, Ink, and Embellishments all in the same colour, I find it easy to create this “Wishing you the happiest of birthdays” card for my stash!

Let’s start with…

The Bumblebee Cardstock (#153077) is cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″, folded and burnished with a bone folder. The Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper (#154297) was cut at 5-1/4″ x 3″. I used the Curvy Dies (#154319) and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (#149653) to “split” the DSP and make room for to stamp the flexible greeting from the Quite Curvy stamp set (#154430).

Now for the Designer Series Paper…

Next, I cut Whisper White Cardstock (#100730) at 5-1/4″ x 4″ and layered the die-cut DSP over it to determine where the greeting would be stamped. I didn’t adhere the DSP with an adhesive until the greeting was stamped with Bumblebee Classic Ink (#153116) – (just in case I had to turn the Whisper White layer over 😉) Once I arranged and stamped the words in a pattern I liked, I attached the DSP with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Note: Use liquid glue gives me a little more “wiggle” room for exact placement.

Now for some embellishments…

A length of Bumblebee Ribbon (#153622) (approx. 10″) was attached to the back of the Whisper White/DSP layer with Mini Glue Dots. A smaller piece of ribbon was used to tie a “Faux” bow. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I attached this completed layer to the card base. And, last but definitely not least, I attached 2 coordinating In Color Enamel Dots (#152480).

On to you…

Now it’s your turn to give it a try – with this bundle you can create a Christmas card, a birthday card, a sympathy card, a thank you card, or thinking of you card – the choice is yours. I’m sure you can figure out how to adapt these cards with the Quite Curvy bundle!
