Wishing You A Lovely Birthday

PTI Wishing You a Lovely Birthday- Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I’m pretty excited to share today’s card.  This is one of those cards that came out exactly as I envisioned it and believe me that doesn’t happen too often.  I created this card for a dear friend’s birthday who is also a stamping friend.  So I wanted to use some products that she may not have been familiar with.

It’s all in the details…

  • The card base is SU Very Vanilla thick card stock cut at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • The next two layers are each cut an additional 1/8″ smaller.  I used Poppy Parade card stock and a floral pattern from DCWV.

  • Next I created  frame using the Mini Scalloped Rectangles die from My Favorite Things.
  • Before adhering this to the card front, I added a piece of acetate window sheet to create a clear window.  Then used a thin piece of dimensional tape to affix it.  This gave it just a slight lift off the card.  It was the same idea as a shaker card but there’s nothing to shake!
  • The window sheet also allows you to see more of the floral pattern and gives off a pretty reflection.
  • Lastly, I added the sentiment which is a die cut from Papertrey Ink called Say It Simply: Wishing You a Lovely Birthday.  I purchased a few more of these sentiment dies as I think they make such a pretty statement on a card.

  • Recently, I’ve been on the hunt for some different inside sentiments.  I found the perfect one in a stamp set called Beautiful Inside by Altenew . This set has some really great sentiments for different occasions that convey more meaningful thoughts.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade ink.
  • I wrapped up the project by lining the envelope with the retired Envelope Liners from Stampin’ Up!

I’m calling this card a Hybrid as it is definitely the result of using a variety of products from several different companies.  These type of cards are quickly becoming a favorite of mine for a few reasons.  One reason is that there’re so many great companies that offer some very unique products and another is I think it stretches your creativity to find products that mix and work well together.  Lastly, I’m happy to use what I have on hand to come up with different cards and projects.

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and are heading into a fun weekend.  Spring has definitely arrived in my neck of the woods and I’m looking forward to spending a lot of time outside this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,

Rosanne

    I always adore and appreciate your attention to detail on the insides of your cards….this is just a beauty – just like you!

  2. Love this card, Rosanne . . . looks fantastic. Love your mix of products too. Definitely going to check out that huge die cut. I like the inside of your card and must remember to do this.
    Not spring-like here as much as I would like, but no snow so that is always wonderful. So excited baseball season has finally started.
    Have a blessed day and weekend too.
