Tutorial - Spring Birthday Card

I'm such a fan of anything purple, so making this card for a Spring birthday was the perfect choice for me. Because of its delicate colors and flowers, it could be easily made into a Easter card, Mother's Day card, Thinking of You card -- very versatile.

You will need the following supplies to make this card: (All products from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted)
1 sheet 4 1/4" x 11" Almost Amethyst cardstock (Item #102158)
1 sheet 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White cardstock (Item #100730)
1 piece 2" x 5 1/2" Designer Series Paper - Tea Party (Item #113992) (paper is double sided)
1 piece 1" x 5 1/2" Designer Series Paper - Tea Party (Item #113992) (paper is double sided)
1 piece 6 1/2" x 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon (Item #114319)
Lovely Lilac Classic Ink Stamp Pad (Item #102874)
5 Petal Flower Paper Punch (Item #109041)
Rubber Stamps:
Birthday Wish (Item #114486)
Polka Dot Punches (Item #113788) - From Sale-A-Bration mini catalog
Art by Design (Item #114920) - for back of card
Bone Folder (Item # 102300)
Paper Snips - Scissors (Item #103579)
Snail Adhesive (Item #104332)
Scotch Brand Tape 1/2" wide

Take your piece of Almost Amethyst card stock and fold in half. Use your bone folder to get a good crisp fold. Your card will now be 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" folded and will fit into an A2 envelope.

Using the snail adhesive, lightly attach the Organza Ribbon to the top side of the printed amethyst side of the paper (the other side is brightly colored) - paper is the 1" x 5 1/2" piece. The ribbon will be longer than the piece of paper, do NOT trim the ribbon.

Fold the ends of the ribbon over to the brightly colored side of the 1" x 5 1/2" piece of paper. Secure with small pieces of scotch tape.

Using the snail adhesive, attach the ribbon/paper piece to the brightly printed side of the 2" x 5 1/2 " piece of designer paper.

Now using snail adhesive, attached it to your card on the front, left side.

Stamp "Happy Birthday to you" using lavender lace ink, centering it from top to bottom and side to side.

Stamp 3 five petal flowers on your piece of white cardstock using the lavender lace ink.

As you can see, the 5 petal flower punch is a perfect match for this rubber stamp. Punch all 3 of the flowers out.

Using snail adhesive, attach the 3 flowers to your ribbon on the card.

Using the "Created By" stamp, stamp with lavender lace ink on the back side. (Card is shown above opened.) Be sure to sign the back of your card.

Card is now complete and ready to be given to someone special for their birthday.
