S imple, pretty birthday card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Blushing Bride Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Melon Mambo Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" of various, multi-colored shells scattered over vanilla background from Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" from Melon Mambo Cardstock
- 2-3/8" x 3-1/2" from Very Vanilla Cardstock
Adhere the piece of Sand & Sea Designer Paper to the center of the large Melon Mambo rectangle.
Cut a 6" piece of the Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim.
Lay the trim across the horizontal designer paper/cardstock rectangle so it is about 1-3/4" from the top edge. Flip the cardstock over and fold the ends of the trim over. Adhere the ends of the trim in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Melon Mambo rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Blushing Bride card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Friends Are Like Seashells Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the large, curling shell image from the Friends Are Like Seashells Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Blushing Bride Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the horizontal vanilla rectangle slightly closer to the left side.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Friends Are Like Seashells Set on an appropriate size block. Ink it up with the Melon Mambo Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the stamped horizontal vanilla rectangle so it overlaps the bottom right side of the shell image a bit.
Adhere the stamped vanilla rectangle to the center of the small Melon Mambo rectangle.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the matted shell/sentiment rectangle to the front of the card so it is centered over the lace trim and is about 1/2" from the left side.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim.
Slide one end of the trim under the trim already on the card front just to the right of the matted shell/sentiment rectangle. Tie in place with a half knot. Trim the ends.
