Good morning! Welcome to the February Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Birthday” and I used the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle to make a colorful floral Birthday card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of striped Pattern Party Host special designer series paper to a Granny Apple Green mat with liquid glue and wrapped it with white crinkle ribbon and made a bow on the side. I adhered it to the front of a Flirty Flamingo card base with dimensionals.
I cut a small Flirty Flamingo panel with the two flower dies from the Floral Squares dies that come in the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle. I cut a small Granny Apple Green Panel with the square die and adhered the two Flirty Flamingo floral die cuts to the square die cut to make the pink flowers on green stems.
I cut small slivers of dimensionals to put around the Granny Apple Green die cut frame and behind the flowers and leaves and adhered the die cut to the card front. I finished the card with three Pool Party iridescent sequins.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I cut the small flowers from Bumblebee and adhered them next to the sentiment and trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the striped Pattern Party DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
The Stampin’ Up! All Squared Away bundle is really sweet with the graphic floral die cuts, and so easy to use. I didn’t used the background stamps, but they would be awesome to add additional texture when stamped on the die cuts or as a background for the die cuts. And popping these cute little squares on dimensionals makes any card special!
