Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Birthday Card

 

Image of card with Garden Green card stock base; Irresistibly Floral designer series paper sponged with Daffodil Delight and Garden Green; Flowers stamped in Daffodil Delight and then die cut; leaves stamped in Garden Green and cut; and finally the sentiment, "just for you," stamped on Very Vanilla.The Special Reason stamp set is so very versatile that I’ll hate to see it retire at the end of May. This birthday card features the wonderful flowers and delightful tag. However the sentiments are not from this set—”just for you” is fond in the So In Love stamp set and “Happy Birthday” from the Stylized Birthday stamp.

I began by stamping all of the elements on a panel of Very Vanilla. The flowers were stamped in Daffodil Delight and the leaves and sentiment on the front were stamped in Garden Green. The piece of Irresistibly Floral DSP was sponged with Garden Green and Daffodil Delight.

The elements are adhered to the card using Snail adhesive, dimensionals, and glue dots.

The interior message panel has a Daffodil Delight flower stamped in the lower left corner, and the sentiment, "Happy Birthday," centered and stamped in Garden Green.

 

The interior message is stamped in Garden Green with the Stylized Birthday stamp. The little flower was stamped in Daffodil Delight.
