Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun fold card with the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and the Perennial Essence DSP! I decided to make this a birthday card with the sentiments from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays! If you missed it, this is a cute stamp set with classic, funny, and a little witty sentiments! Since most of my go-to birthday stamp set have retired, I thought these would be a great staple set to turn any card into a birthday card.
To start, cut a piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4 ¼” x 5 ½” for the base layer and then this design from Perennial Essence DSP at 4” x 5 ¼” to layer on top:
For the mini card, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock at 4 ½” x 6 ½”, and scored at 3 ¼”:
For the card front, stamp the outline flower in Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, carefully color around the edges with Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and fill in with Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends (I used a very light touch around the Blackberry Bliss ink, it will bleed with the blends pen), use the leaf die from Beautiful Layers to cut out three in Mossy Meadow cardstock, some Silver Metallic Thread, and a coordinating piece of DSP cut at 1 ½”x 3 ¼” and used the edgelit die from Beautiful Layers:
To assemble the mini card, I first stamped the diamond shape background stamp in Blackberry Bliss ink along the side edges, adhered the leaves to the back of the flower, adhered to the DSP, adhered the metallic thread to the back of the DSP and then adhered this to the mini card front. I then heat embossed the sentiment in Silver Embossing Powder:
I adhered the DSP to the Petal Pink cardstock base and then adhered the mini card to the front:
For the inside, cut at piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3” x 4 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and stamp the flower in the corner, colored with Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers:
Isn’t this a fun fold card to make? Perennial Essence DSP is so versatile and I just love it! I really can coordinate with a variety of flower stamps, I would never have thought to combine this stamp set with this DSP!!
