Birthday Blossoms Scallop Square Swing Card

2015-08-30 2015-08-30 001 001The die for this fun swing card is one of my recent Zulilly online purchases.  The only caveat I discovered after receiving the die, was that it is a 5” square card and would not fit in the standard A2 envelope.  I resolved that issue by folding the longer side of the card back 1” so that the card easily fits the standard card envelope.  The Pretty Petals DSP Stack has the vibrant butterfly DSP that is used on this card.  The tiny butterflies are in Old Olive, Mint Macaroon (new), Pacific Point, and Calypso Coral.  The flowers featured on the scallop square that swings to the front are from the Birthday Blossoms set , stamped in Calypso Coral, punched out with the pansy punch, and sponged heavily in Calypso Coral.

2015-08-30 2015-08-30 001 005The fussy cut leaves are stamped in Old Olive on Mint Macaroon.  Assorted embellishments are available to use in flower centers.  Although Candy Dots are shown in the view above, the other sample features the White Perfect Accents that I colored blue with a Sharpie.  Rhinestones would also look great!  Happy Birthday is one of 3 messages that can be die cut in Pacific Point and adhered to the front.

The scallop square that swings to the back carries our message stamped in either Pacific Point or Old Olive on Mint Macaroon.  Several tiny flowers are stamped in Calypso Coral and fussy cut.  Assorted butterflies are precut from the Embosslits Beautiful Wings and adhered to carry the butterfly theme from front to back.  Although not shown in these images, the back 1” flap features the multi-colored butterfly DSP.

As I look back on the 4 cards we will be doing for September Stamp Camp, I realize there are NO BOWS!!!!!  Two of the cards utilize ribbon in a simple straight line.  I’m sure several of you are happy about the “bow-less” cards.  As a reminder, September Stamp Camp is 2-9 PM on the 3rd and 4th, and 9 AM – 4 PM on the 5th.  The cost for the 4 cards is $12.00.  If you are unable to attend and would prefer picking up a kit, please give me advance notice. I want you to enjoy crafting – have fun, be creative, and relax!  If you know what day you will be attending, it’s helpful if you give me a heads-up, but certainly  not required.

Looking ahead, the October Stamp Camp will be held October 1, 2, and 3 and will feature Leaves, Ghosts, & Christmas.  I am quite excited as we will be doing some super cards.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
