Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle to make a sweet birthday card. With the warmer weather, I planted some pansies by my mailbox this weekend, so I had to pull out this set for today’s card. With all the excitement about the new products, I forgot how beautiful this suite is, so it’s time to re-discover it! You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a Theme Challenge this week with the wonderful theme of Flowers – so perfect!
This card is kind of a fun fold card, where the card front is cut in half and turned sideways, so part of the inside of the card is showing – perfect for showing off pretty DSP. So I adhered panels of the pansy filled Pansy Petals designer series paper to the inside and to the front of a my Calypso Coral card base. I adhered a Calypso Coral dotted panel of the Pansy Petals DSP to the cut off front panel, and adhered it to the card front with Tear & Tape, centering the panel on the card.
I cut my flower and bud from Basic White, Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Evening Evergreen using the Pansy Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle. I adhered the Pale Papaya large petal edge to the Basic White base and topped it with the Calypso Coral center detail and a Daffodil Delight flower center. I adhered the two Calypso Coral edges to the two Pale Papaya small petals and adhered them both to the back of the Basic White large flower. I adhered the Pale Papaya bud petal to the Basic White bud base and adhered them to the Evening Evergreen stem. I adhered the bud with glue dots and the large flower with dimensionals.
I cut some Evening Evergreen leaves from the Pansy Patch DSP and tucked them under the large pansy. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Pale Papaya and cut it out with the Ornate Frames die. I adhered it to the card front. I finished off the card with a Pale Papaya bow and some iridescent gems, adding a large one to the pansy center!
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel. I cut out a small pansy from the Pansy Patch DSP and adhered it to the corner and adhered the panel to a Calypso Coral mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue, lining it up so that it would be covered by the front panel.
The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is really sweet and makes gorgeous dimensional pansies. The sentiments are also great and the Pansy Patch DSP is perfect for all your Spring cards.
