Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Simple Birthday Card

This is a really simple birthday card that took less than 10 minutes to make! Although simple and quick, it’s still pretty, with lots of texture thanks to the new Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flowers.

The card base is Old Olive card stock, layered with Shades of Spring DSP in a pink striped pattern. I stamped “happy birthday” from Well Scripted in chocolate chip ink on Whisper White card stock and adhered it to the DSP. Then, I took some 1″ Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and wrapped it around the DSP, attaching the whole thing to the card base with SNAIL adhesive.

To finish off the card, I added two items from the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt: the pink & brown flower and the green leaf. I used glue dots to attach the felt.

Spooky Tree–Happy Halloween!

Spooky Tree

Spooky Tree

This is a Halloween card I made a few weeks ago when I was in my “glitter web” phase! The base is Basic Black card stock, layered with Halloween DSP (retired). I traced the spider web with my MS fine tip glue pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over it. I love this look!

The tree is a rub on from Bright Delights Rub Ons. After I rubbed it onto the card, I traced over it with my White Gel Pen and then used my Pastel Chalks with the sponge applicator to rub a little Old Olive chalk onto it. It’s hard to see in the photo, but it gives it a subtle greenish glow.

Finally, I used the Modern Label Punch with Kiwi Kiss card stock and the Word Window Punch with the black DSP to create the sentiment, which I wrote with White Gel Pen. That is attached to the card using dimensionals.

Things I Love

This is a strange card. I was thinking about who I would give this card to, and the most logical recipient would be my husband, based on the sentiment. But, at the same time, what man is going to want and/or appreciate a card with shoes, chocolate, shopping, and pink sparkly things????

Now you see my dilemma? Oh well, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it, but for now, I’ll explain what I used to make this card.

Base is my FAVORITE Striped Kraft from Taste of Textiles, which is no longer available. And I only have 1 1/2 sheets left!!!! But I can’t obsess over that now. Stamp set is new, Things I Love. I stamped the images in Black Stazon, Black Marker, Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip & Soft Suede markers. I used Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Basic Black card stock. I punched out the images with a 7/8″ square punch (non-SU), and mounted them on 1″ squares of Melon Mambo. That was then adhered to a black tag made using the Tag Punch. At the top of the tags, I used my Cropadile to punch a hole and added Square Fire Rhinestone Brads. I would have used the large ones but I was down to my last few small ones. The tags are adhered with a dimensional.

The paper piercer added some definition to the Melon Mambo layered behind Whisper White “things I love…”, which is mounted on dimensionals.
