Wonderful Wreath and Happy Birthday Everyone

Happy birthday everyone with wreath

This card came from an idea I had about the Wonderful Wreath Framelits by Stampin’ Up!  I wanted to use the pieces to this framelits set to create a summer wreath for a special birthday card.

  • The colors I chose are Melon Mambo, Hello Honey, Night of Navy and Old Olive.  They’re the colors in the English Garden Designer Paper, minus a couple, but worked really well for the wreath.
  • I started by cutting out the wreath base using Old Olive Cardstock with the two wreath framelits – both the inside and the outside pieces.  This allows some of the green to peek through so that you don’t have to cut out extra leaves.  Here’s a photo of how the wreath begins:

  • Cutting out all of the flowers is a breeze with the Framelits.  I doubled the cardstock, cutting two at a time, and the framelits cut through both layers nicely.  “Scrunching” the cardstock flowers made them a bit more three dimensional.
  • The centers of the flowers are created with the 1/4″ Circle Handheld Punch; use a 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere them all.
  • A pretty Night of Navy 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon is the perfect accent to the wreath, held in place with a Glue Dot.

  • My sentiment comes from a host-exclusive stamp set called Happy Birthday, EveryoneHere’s another card using this great set.  Choose this stamp set as a free gift when you order a minimum of $150 in products in my Online Store (before tax/shipping).


  • And inside the card, I used the “happy birthday” sentiment from the same set stamped in Night of Navy Ink – such a pretty combination of fonts!

Happy Birthday and Bohemian Borders

happy birthday everyone


With the Bohemian Borders stamp set by Stampin’ Up!, you can create beautifully simple cards in a jif.  Any color combination can be used.  Here I’ve chosen Bermuda Bay, Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron – just a little different from the Bohemian Designer Series Paper colors.

The other featured stamp set is a host-exclusive set called Happy Birthday, Everyone.  I just love the font on this one, and it’s a stamp set that’s literally for everyone!  Earn yours free when you purchase a minimum of $150 in my online store.  You can also host a workshop in your home and receive this set for free.  Email me if that’s something you’d like to do (and you’re within an hour’s drive of Rochester, NY).  OR another way that you can receive this stamp set is my Birthday Club – check it out HERE.

A piece of Bohemian Designer Series Paper works great for lining the envelope, since the sheet I chose is a Bermuda Bay print.  This pretty touch really ramps up the wow appeal of your cards.  Be sure to order the Envelope Liner Framelits so you can line all of your special creations.

I have to confess – I’m having a very hard time working today!  It’s picture perfect here in Central New York, and I just want to be gardening!  So I decided to try something different and shoot my card photo outside – what do you think?

Stamping the “to an amazing woman” in a different color ink on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock and putting it on Dimensionals adds a nice touch.
