Pretty Perennials Multi Greeting Happy Card

February 21, 2021

Well now, did that post title make you wonder?  It’s the fault of the greetings in the Pretty Perennials stamp set.  The happy word is in a large script font.  The remaining words are in a snazzy uppercase font.  These words offer us five separate greetings.  This stamp set is a winner for offering so many floral images plus the variety of greetings.

Pretty Perennials - HAPPY BIRTHDAY

 

Pretty Perennials -HAPPY MAIL & HAPPY BIRTHDAY

What would you like to say??? Happy MAIL?   Happy BIRTHDAY? Or more…..

 

Pretty Perennials - SENDING LOTS.... & HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Here are today’s tools:

 

We made this card in my Community Center class this past Thursday with lots of success.  Ten properly spaced participants stamped one colored flower grouping at a time by passing each stamp and stamp pad around the room.  First……

Start with Highland Heather

Then…..

Highland Heather + Coast Cabana

Add Coastal Cabana

And then…..

Highland Heather + Coast Cabana + Granny Apple Green

Highland Heather + Coast Cabana + Granny Apple Green branches

 

Followed by…..

Highland Heather + Coast Cabana + Granny Apple Green branches + leaves

Highland Heather + Coast Cabana + Granny Apple Green branches + leaves + Daffodil Delight dots

 

Finally, use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the larger rectangular Painted Labels die, to cut out the very center of the card  layer.  Set that die cut piece aside.

Attach the stamped layer to the card front (tip following) using eight Dimensionals, one in each corner and one on each side.

Attach stamped layer to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

TIP:  Score your card front layer using either a Stampin’ Trimmer or the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  When you fold your card front, fold away from the recessed scored line.  I know, it’s seems counter-intuitive.  But, the card stock will fold smoother and the fibers in the paper will lay nicer.

Add a few gems in the greeting area if you’d like.  For my card today I used two images from the Quite Curvy stamp set for my daughter-in-law’s birthday card.  An alternative would be to add that piece you die cut earlier to the inside of the card for a splash of color that really does coordinate with your card.

Finally, a pack of five cards, each with a different greeting, would make a lovely gift.

Have a great week.  If you happen to be in Texas, my heart goes out to you and I wish you the best just as quickly as possible.  The rest of the nation — or the world for that matter — just keep on with those Covid protocols so you can remain healthy.  One of these days we’ll see ‘normalcy’ again.  I know……what’s normal???  Happy stamping.

PS.  I’m working on updating sidebar images but they’re a huge learning curve for me.  Please be patient and know that I know some images are way out of date.  It’s embarrassing and frustrating.
