Pretty Pastel Decorative Border Birthday

Stampin Up Decorative Border Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

Today I’m sharing a another card created with the Decorative Borders stamp set.  I mentioned last week how much I love this set even though I don’t think it’s one of the “stand outs” of the mini catalog.  It’s great that the mini catalog has just about something for everyone because you never know what might just catch your eye…and this set did just that for me.  It’s been mentioned to me that the set may be more appealing if it had coordinating dies.  I think that’s true but if you don’t mind (or actually like) cutting images by hand, these are not difficult at all.  I do have a Scan n’ Cut but for some reason it was not doing a good job with these images, so I just used scissors.

Materials & Measurements

  • Basic White thick card base:  cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Gold Foil: cut at 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 & 5 1/4 x 1/4 strip and a 5 1/4 x 4 panel along with two 5 x 1/8 strips (for inside)
  • Texture Chic DSP: cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and 5 x 3/4 (for inside)
  • Basic White card stock: cut at 5 x 3 3/4 (inside)


  • Glue the gold foil and DSP panel to the card base
  • Position the 1/4″ gold foil strip and glue to the DSP
  • Stamp the sentiment, from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, in Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder
  • Punch using the straight heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack and glue to the left side of the card.
  • Stamp and heat emboss in gold the floral border image.
  • Color using Stampin’ Blends.  I used Petal Pink and Old Olive.
  • Cut out the image and adhere it the the heart using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a few small gold embellishments from my stash.
