Fresh & Pretty Slimline Birthday

 

Happy September!  Even though summer is still my favorite season, I’ve always loved September.  I absolutely loved going back to school as a child.  In fact, I still love going back to school.  Today is the first day I’ll be back in my school building since May when I had to collect my personal items from the library.  Our library has been renovated over the summer and I’ll be back today to see it for the first time.  I’m pretty excited.  It will be a little bittersweet, though.  Our students are learning virtually at least until October and then it will be decided if they can come back in the building.

There’s also another reason to love September…it’s my youngest daughter, Emily’s birthday!  Here’s the card I made for her.

Stampin Up Slimline Daisy Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

It’s been a while since I created a card with my favorite flower, the daisy.  I’m also having a great time making slimline cards.  Why didn’t this trend come along sooner!

Materials & Measurements

  • Pear Pizzazz card base:         8 1/2″ x 8″, score at 4″ on the 8″ side
  • Whisper White:                      8 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
  • Heartwarming Hugs DSP:   8 1/8″ x 3 5/8″

Details:

  • Glue the DSP to the Whisper White panel.
  • Wrap the white cotton ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo around the DSP panel.
  • Adhere DSP panel to the Pear Pizzazz card base.  I used a piece of fun foam for this.  You could also use Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • I stamped the sentiment from the Best Years stamp set and cut it using a die from the Tasteful Labels dies.  
  • I then layered it on another label from Tasteful Labels in Flirty Flamingo card stock.
  • The sentiment label is glued to the center of the card.
  • Using the Medium Daisy punch, I punched 15 flowers from Whisper White card stock.
  • To color the daisies, I used a Distressed Oxide stamp pad in Worn Lipstick.   I’m still practicing blending and I’ve found that this ink is the easiest for me to get good results with.  
  • After layering and offsetting 3 flowers, I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing Folder and punched the flower centers.
  • The daisies are adhered around the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I stamped the leaves using an image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow ink.  These are hand cut and tucked in between the flowers.
  • Lastly, I added a few retired gems from the Noble Peacock rhinestones.

  • The inside sentiment is also from the Best Years stamp set.
  • Another daisy and a strip of DSP are simple yet pretty embellishments.

  • I purchased a box of linen resume envelopes from an office supply store for my slimline cards.  

Emily’s birthday is tomorrow, 9/2 and we always celebrated it over the Labor Day weekend.  However, this year we celebrated this past weekend.  Emily is a 5th grade teacher and her district will be having in-person classes, so she went back to school yesterday and we decided that we’ll resume our lockdown type of visits to keep everyone safe.  So that means only outdoor visits and no more hugs from her or my grandson, Jack…it’s very sad!  Here’s my sweet baby and how she’ll be greeting her students.  They won’t see her dazzling smile, so she bedazzled her face shield!

I wish all the teachers, staff and students in every school district a safe and successful start to the school year.
