Celebrate the big day with the Stampin’Up! Birthday Blossoms Brick embossed card!  Love these fun pansy flowers!

Start this card with a 8.5″ x 5.5″ crumb cake card base.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The Basic Black layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Finally the top Crumb Cake layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Emboss this with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

Stamp 2 pansies in white ink on crumb cake and 2 on black cardstock.  Punch out with the pansy punch.  Tip:  Each of the petals is different, so if you place a black mark next to the bottom petal (on the stamp) then it’s easier to line up in the punch!

Stamp and fussy cut the leaves.  Use an office hole punch for the black circles and add the pearls.  Stamp the sentiment on .75″ strip and layer on top of a .5″ black strip.  Flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card

This Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Perfect Day card is lovely without being flashy!  I love the Blossom builder punch, particularly for leaves of all colors!

The Bunch of Blossoms stamp set is made up primarily of 3 step stamping which adds so much depth to the images.  The trick is just finding the right combination of 3 colors.  For this card I kept it simple in shades of brown using Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, and Early Espresso ink.

Begin with Early espresso cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″.  Emboss a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.  And then add a layer of the Moroccan DSP.  Wrap the Very Vanilla Stitched Ribbon and attach the embellishments.

Remember to decorate your envelope!
