Rainbow Birthday Card

These cute little flowers are made with the Confetti Flowers Border Punch. I loved arranging them to make a Rainbow Birthday Card that I’m excited to send to a special friend on my list!

Here are the products used:

Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  • Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score & fold at 4-1/4″, burnish with Bone Folder.
  • Cut Brass Foil Sheet at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use Layering Oval Die & Big Shot to cut an oval from the centre of the Brass Foil Sheet. Use Stampin’ Seal to attach to the card base.
  • Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″. Use Stampin’ Seal to attach the Brass Foil oval to the centre of this layer.
  • Use Flowering Border Punch to punch out flowers from selected rainbow colours. You will need 1 large flower and 2 medium flowers of each colour for this design.
  • Arrange the flowers in “rainbow order” around the oval with the large flower closest to the oval and the 2 medium flowers as the supporting “legs”.
  • Once you’re happy with the layout, place some Multipupose Liquid Glue on your Silicone Mat (don’t have this mat? You can use waxed paper.) Use the sticky putty on the end of your Take Your Pick Tool to pick up the flower, dip it in the liquid glue, and place it on the Whisper White layer. I placed all the large flowers first and then added the medium flowers.
  • Stamp the greeting from Peaceful Moments stamp set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use Layering Oval Die & Big Shot to cut it out. Attach over the Brass oval with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • NOTE: Try to keep from getting liquid glue on the Brass oval – if you look closely you can see that I got a few smudges on mine! It’s really hard to get them off!! šŸ˜„

Fancy Fold Birthday Card

Recently I was asked to make a very special birthday card. I was so pleased with the results so I’ve decided to share it with all of you! Yes, it took a lot of pieces, a lot of products and a lot of time to create this “one of a kind” creation!

Here are the products used:

If you want to order, click on the image or the description and you’ll be directed to my online store!


Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 1 pc 12″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4″, 7-1/2″, 11″
    • 1 pc 11″ x 5-1/2″, score at 3″, 6″, 8-1/2″
  • Highland Heather Cardstock:
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 2-3/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 2-7/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 3-3/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Designer Series Paper (Lily Impressions):
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Ribbon – 24″

Now here’s a look at the pages inside the card:

  • Fold each of the Whisper White Cardstock pieces on each of the score lines with each fold being the opposite direction from the last fold.
  • Use a strong adhesive like Tear ‘N Tape to attach the 1″ strip on the longer piece to the widest section of the shorter piece.
  • Attach 24″ of ribbon around the folded card being sure to have the front approximately 6″ shorter than the back. This will result in the tied bow being on the front edge.
  • Decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to display. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the DSP to the cardstock.
  • Arrange the layers in the desired locations. Use Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink to stamp the greetings. Cut the greetings out with dies and the Big Shot. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach as desired.
  • Use the Perennial Flower Punch to punch out flowers that have been stamped on Highland Heather Cardstock with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.
  • Use Snail Adhesive and Dimensionals to attach the flowers to the layers as desired.

Here’s another look at the finished project:
