Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - Happy Birthday - Beyond the Garden DSP

Need an idea for a Stampin' Up! birthday greeting card featuring the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP)?  Here is one that I made for a very special friend who is having a milestone birthday this weekend.  One of the pictures below of the card is a closeup of the flowers that I created with the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  It is provided in case you desire a closer "look".

The base for the card is Wild Wasabi Card Stock.  Other card stock used is Tangerine Tango, So Saffron (sentiment), and Daffodil Delight.  A design from Beyond the Garden DSP is the first layer for the card and the second layer for the sentiment.  The center of the card is Tangerine Tango Card Stock, Wild Wasabi Card Stock, and a design from the Sunny Garden DSP.  It is embellished with flowers made with the three images from the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch

The bottom and middle layers of the largest flower on the card is from Image 1 of the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  The top layer of the flower is from Image 3, and the center is from the outer layer of Image 2 of the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  The glitter that is seen between the middle and top layers of the flower is the Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds

The other two flowers are identical and made from Image I (first layer) and Image 2 (second layer) of the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  Both layers are covered with one of the new Stampin' Up! Embossing Powders, either the Tangerine Tango or Wild Wasabi.  The Blossom Petals Punch was used to create the three leaves around the flowers.

The three small tear drops in the three corners of the center piece are from the cutouts of Image 3 of the punch.  As I was making the card, I had several of these pieces on my table, and I thought they are too cute to not use.  Therefore, I used them and like the outcome!

The "Birthday Wishes" sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Occasional Quotes Hostess Set on page 12 of the large catalog.  The Modern Label and Word Window Punches were used to create the sentiment.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the development of the flowers.  Also, if you have not purchased the products used for this card, order them by placing your cursor over the links and you will be taken directly to the products.  Until the next time,

God Blessings!
