I took a little break from putting together holiday cards and decided to cut more of the very pretty Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. Patterned paper is always a great inspiration for me, and today’s card is no exception.

I enjoy mixing patterns and adding layers and die cuts. That’s exactly how I constructed this card. I mixed a few patterns, added layers, a pretty die cut and a sentiment.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

As you can see from my pieces and parts picture, I cut a few pieces I didn’t use in the final card. It’s all part of the process!

  • I cut a Basic White card base 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 5 1/2″.
  • The Evening Evergreen mat layer is 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.
  • The patterned paper layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • I die cut a citcle to layer my flower spray. The circle is 2 3/4″ in diameter.
  • The Polished Pink patterned paper strip is 4 1/4″ x 1/2″.
  • The Blushing Bride patterned paper layer strip is 3 3/4″ x 5/8″.
  • I cut the Basic White sentiment strip 2 3/4″ x 5/8″.
  • I die cut the flower cluster from a pattern in the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper.
  • Remember that pretty Evening Evergreen windopane check ribbon? It’s currently in the Annual Catalog. I think it works perfectly with this design.
  • I formed a bow and attached it behind the Blushing Bride patterned paper strip.

The Inside

On many occasions, I leave the inside of my cards blank and write a personal note to my recipient. For holiday cards, I tend to stamp a sentiment. Lately, I stamp a sentiment inside the card and write a short personal note. Either way, it’s fun to add a little something to the inside of your card.

So, match up a few patterns, cut a layer and two strips, add a citcle and some pretty flowers and create a card to celebrate a beautiful birthday.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
