Happy Birthday with Dandelion Wishes

img_3419
Happy Birthday to my sweet daughter, Ariane.  I can’t believe she is 21 years old today!  Last week I shared her surprise birthday celebration. If you missed that post you can view it HERE.

I mailed her this card so she would get it on her birthday.
Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the new Highland Heather Designer Series Paper and cardstock because purple is her favorite color. I love the 6 x 6 DSP packs!  They are the perfect size to decorate a card and envelope.  I first cut a 2 x 6 piece to use on the flap of my envelope.  Then I cut the 4 x 6 piece to 4 x 5 1/4 to layer on the front of my card.  I used the leftover 3/4 x 4 piece on the inside of my card.  I love that there is no waste!

I stamped the image and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch and layered it with a 1 3/4 Circle in Highland Heather. I popped the sentiment and layered dandelion image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling!

Stampin Up Touches of Texture and Perennial Birthday embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love to make birthday cards! Several friends have birthdays this month so I decided to make a birthday card for card club this month. I used one of my favorite color combinations, yellow and black.  What’s funny is without even realizing it I wore a pair of yellow capris with a black top to card club.  One of the ladies pointed out I “matched my card”.  LOL

The floral image is from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set. Stampin Up Touches of Texture Stamp set - visit juststampin.com to order Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This set of 15 images feature an eclectic array of useful and fun styles which are great for focal points or backgrounds. The textures and elements in this stamp set will add dimension and character to any of your cards.

I always like to give several options for sentiments to my card club members and this month I also shared several different embossing folder options.Stampin Up Touches of Texture embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love embossing folders! They are such a quick & easy (and inexpensive!) way to add texture and dimension. You really get a big bang for your buck. I like to emboss the envelopes too! I used the Layered Leaves, Tufted, and Subtle Embossing Folders.  Here is a closer look at each.

I even embossed the little flag on the last one with the Subtle folder.  It reminds me of linen fabric.

You could use a variety of sentiments with this card design. The sentiments I used are from Beautiful Bouquet and Perennial Birthday. I stamped each in Memento Black ink.
