Happy 62nd Birthday- card

Well, this has been a busy week but I did manage to squeeze in some crafty time. Today I have created a birthday card for hubby who turned 62 on Tuesday. I made the card for my son to give to his daddy and it was so easy to make. A little stamping, a little die-cutting and some strips of DSP. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Additional supplies: clear blocks, ATG tape runner.

1. Create a card base from Night of Navy card stock to measures 4 ¼” x 11” and score at 5 ½”.

2. Cut a Very Vanilla panel of card stock to measure 4 x 5 ¼”.

3. Using the Urban Underground DSP, cut ½” strips using the paper trimmer. Place the strips at an angle on the Very Vanilla panel leaving spaces between each strip.

4. Die cut a scalloped circle from Night of Navy card stock and pop up on dimensionals. Next die-cut the banner from the coordinating framelits using Very Vanilla card stock. Stamp the nd inside the banner using Delightful Dijon ink and pop up on a dimensional and add to the scalloped circle.

5. Adhere the scalloped circle to the DSP panel, stamp and die cut the numbers needed using Delightful Dijon ink and adhere to the scalloped circle with the Fine-tip glue pen. Adhere the whole panel to the card front.

Just a Note- card

Hello and welcome to the post for today. I have created a card design that includes stamping, die-cutting and free DSP and was inspired from a sketch I found on Pinterest by Simply Stampin' Challenge #22(https://www.pinterest.com/pin/201395414563106164/). I loved the DSP (get this free with a $50.00 order) and the single strip of card stock behind the focal panel. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
