Birthday card for the fashionista!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a super cute birthday card for that fashionista in your life! If you missed it, the Best Dressed Suite in the 2020 Mini Catalog is a super cute suite that I think of as “for the girly girl”, you know, they like makeup, shoes, purses…all the fun stuff! And yes, that includes me! Lol However, I thought I would show you an easy, fun, and cute card to make with the Best Dressed 6” x 6” DSP. I’m all about making easy cards and using up my DSP and since this DSP has 4 each of 12 double sided designs, I am using this particular design to make four cards that will be ready to address and send out as needed! 

For the base layer, you will use this design from the Best Dressed DSP. I first cut a ¾” strip along the bottom and then turned the DSP 90 degrees and cut at 4”. The base layer is the 4” x 5 ¼” and then you will also have a ¾” x 6” and a 2” x 5 ¼” strips of DSP left over:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Use the swirl die from Painted Labels to cut out of Purple Posy cardstock.

2. Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments on Whisper White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out with the smaller label die from Painted Labels.

3. Cut enough of the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie around the DSP layer into a bow.

4. You will also need three of the 3mm Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

To assemble the card, adhere the sentiment to the Purple Posy swirl cut out cardstock, use dimensionals to attach to the DSP base layer, tie the ribbon around the DSP into a bow, and then use the Take Your Pick Tool to attach the rhinestones:

This completed piece is adhered to a Purple Posy cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink, and adhere the ¾” strip along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

For the 2” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP, I use this die from the Beautiful Layers Dies to cut it so the DSP can be adhered to the envelope flap:

This card is so cut and soooo easy to make!! Whether it’s stamps or DSP, I always try to decorate the envelope because you have this super cut card and you don’t want to send it in a plain envelope! j/k I usually stamp something small, but when it comes to 6” x 6” DSP, this is my “go to” for using up all the DSP!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
