Sending Birthday Wishes Your Way!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy card featuring the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set, Playing with Patterns 6” x 6” DSP, and the Banners Pick a Punch! The Banners Pick a Punch can be found on page 65 in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog! You can create either a ½”, ¾”, or 1” banners with this cute punch, which does punch BOTH ends of your banner! How fun is that? I really wanted to test this punch out and thought pairing it with Itty Bitty Birthdays would be perfect!

The base layer is this design from Playing with Patterns 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. One Square Vellum Doily.

2. Use a piece of Braided Linen Trim to tie into a bow and use your bone folder to “curl” the ends.

3. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at ½” x 2 ¾”, stamp the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink, and use the Banners Pick a Punch as shown.

4. Using the ¾” x 6” strip from the DSP, use the opposite side design, cut down to 3 ¾”, and use the Banners Pick a Punch as shown. This will be layered under the sentiment piece.

5. Using your Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends, color three of the 5mm Pearl Basic Jewels, not pictured.

Adhere the DSP base layer to a Basic Gray cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. Place a small strip of adhesive in the middle to adhere the Square Vellum Doily as shown:

I adhered the layered sentiment piece in the middle of the doily with dimensionals, used a glue dot for the braided linen trim bow, and adhered the colored pearls as shown:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink, and use the dot background stamp from Pattern Play along the bottom in Coastal Cabana ink:

Very quick and easy card! Banners Pick a Punch is perfect for those smaller sentiments! There is a coordinating stamp set, however, I already have my holiday list for this catalog made out and I just really wanted the punch! I do that sometimes, just get a punch or die set and not the coordinating stamp set!

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!
