Stampin' Up! Botanical Prints Medley Belated Birthday Card

Good morning, peeps! Today is the first day since we've been in NC that I have made a card. We've been here 5 days. It's been over a week since I made a card, period! I figured I better start soon or I'd even forget how to cut my card stock...lol. I cut my Basic Black Card Stock to measure 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4". Take a look see...


I chose to do Black & White + one color...green... so I could play at Try it on Tuesday.

I ordered the Botanical Prints Product Medley Kit quite awhile ago and was saving it to bring to NC. Kits are wonderful for that and this one retires June 2. It's a $70 product that is now on sale for $42 while supplies last. If you'd like to order it, click here.

I had pre-cut my rectangles before leaving home because I knew that I would be CASEing Sharon Burkert's card. They are cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the berry image in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the leaves with my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil and blended with my Blender Pen.

I cut a strip of DSP from the kit (2" x 5 1/2") and adhered it with SNAIL (retiring June 2). 

Using my grid paper, I lined up the three rectangles where I thought they were evenly spaced and then adhered them with Dimensionals only on the top and center back.

The kit has this beautiful Old Olive ribbon in it. I ran it under the bottom of the loose rectangle bottoms and tied a bow. I used about 16" of ribbon.

The kit also comes with punch out shapes for sentiments. I used one of them for my Itty Bitty Birthday sentiment, which is stamped in Pear Pizzazz. I adhered it with Dimensionals.

On the inside, I adhered a strip of 1/2" x 5 1/4" of the same DSP. I will be writing a personal note on the inside so I didn't take a pic of it.

Both Watercooler Wednesday (WWC270 with a Feminine Twist) and Word Art Wednesday #438-#439 have an Anything Goes Challenge so I am entering my card on those two sites as well.

Thank you for stopping by to view my card today and thank you, Sharon, for your inspiration. I hope y'all will come back tomorrow for our Thursday Happy Inkin' Krew Blog Hop.
