Stampin Up Pretty Pernennials Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Surprise, it’s another slimline!  I’m completely in on this card making trend right now.  I love that you can make them in a variety of sizes and that they allow for more room for creativity.  My slimline measures 8″ x 3 1/2″.

My card today features a much overlooked product in my craft room…the Many Medallions dies.  I also incorporated the Pretty Perennials bundle and the True Love Designer Series Paper. 

The large die in the Many Medallions dies measures a little less than 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ so I had to alter it to fit the slimline design.  

Using the largest die, I cut 2 pieces with Whisper White card stock.  Since the die is wider than my card, I trimmed along the right side, leaving 4 columns of medallions on each die cut.  I also determined that I would need 3 rows of medallions from the 2nd die cut to cover the front of the card.


I attached the two pieces with liquid glue.  And then glued the whole piece to the Petal Pink panel.







I colored the flowers from the True Love Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Blends, cut them out and glued them to the pretty medallion background.  Using the sentiments from the Pretty Perennials stamp set, I stamped the large “happy” and used my Scan n’ Cut to cut it out.  I also cut a mat from Basic Black card stock.

The inside sentiment a combination of two sentiments from the Best Year stamp set.

I created a custom envelope using a piece of 32lb white copy paper.  The extra paper weight is just perfect for an envelope.  Just for a little interest, I added another cut-out colored flower.
