Hello! One thing I love about stamping my own birthday cards is that I can make a card as simple or as complex as I want to. The reality is that sometimes we can set aside some time to sit down for a little creative therapy (ie: stamping) and we may spend lots of time adding all the little details to our card, and other days we may realize that we need a birthday card and only have a few minutes to get it done! Today's card is a quick and easy no layer stamped birthday card that features the Oh So Succulent stamp set from Stampin' Up's 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:
This card is super quick and easy! Start with a card base of Soft Suede cardstock, cut at 4.25"x 11", scored and folded at the 5.5" mark so you get a portait oriented card.
At the top of the card, use Whisper White Craft Ink to stamp the 'happy birthday' greeting. Allow this to dry so you don't smudge it in the next steps. 🙂
Stamp the solid flower images from the Oh So Succulent stamp set in Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy Ink.
With the Whisper White Craft Ink, take the outline flower images from the Oh So Succulent stamp set and stamp the matching flower images over the solid colored images. Add a few smaller outline flowers to fill some of the spaces.
As a final touch, wrap some Crushed Curry Baker's Twine around the top fold of the card and tie a bow. That's it! So quick and easy!!
If you want to add a bit more oomph to your card, you could add some Clear Wink of Stella or Rhinestones Basics Jewels for some bling!
