Elegant Birthday Card

Have you guys been keeping busy?  I always think the first quarter of the year is going to provide some down time, but I don't know where is it all going.  Including Sale-a-Bration... we are in the last couple of weeks already.  Crazy!

I did not want you to miss out on some really pretty paper and a great stamp set.  I used both, along with some coordinating dies to create these cards.

My colors are Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam.  Two of my favorites.  I know you cannot order the Purple Posy ink pad but you can order Purple Posy Blends to color images, ribbons, accessories.  It is a great option to still be able to use the color.  Love using my Blends for this purpose, in any color!

My card bases are standard 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 then scored at 4-1/4"

The So Very Vellum paper is a Free Sales-a-Bration earn with a $50.00 product purchase.  I cut my pieces to 4" x 5-1/2" so this way you can get six pieces per sheet.  The So Very Vellum comes in a 12x12 pack of 3 colors (blue not shown) and you receive two sheets of each color. 

Another Free Sale-a-Bration earn with a $50.00 product purchase, is the Happy Birthday To You stamp set.  Did you notice, I only have the Flowers on my card and not the cake like the stamp has!!!  That's because there is a coordinating product called Birthday Dies and one of the dies just cuts the flowers!  This is a huge bonus for me to get altered looks from the stamp set.  I used Smokey Slate ink for a softer look. 

Here are the dies...

BD Dies

LOOK!  The sprig and leaf dies cut 2 at a time!!!  So I cut some glimmer sprigs and some vellum leaves.

I'd be remiss if I did not mention the stitched rectangle... this is from one of my NEW FAVORITE Die sets called Stitched So Sweetly found in the 2020 Mini Catalog.  It is available in a BUNDLE Call So Sentimental but for this project, I just used the dies. check them out, they are awesome!
