Designing a Beautiful Birthday Card with Poised Peony Stamp Set

Today we're Designing a Beautiful Birthday Card with Poised Peony Stamp Set. Tuesday we used this same set for a pretty little All Occasions card--if you missed it check it out here Click here to see Tuesday's card.

This set is one of those simple beauties with three frequently used greetings--"hello," " birthday" and "in my thoughts." These verses can cover just about any occasion or situation you may encounter. And, as we mentioned Tuesday the script is a perfect match to the line drawings of our images.

Here's todays creation...


And a bit closer look...

Small cu

One of my new favorite color combos is Navy and Yellow and one of my favorite new yellows is Lemon this card displays them both quite nicely.

The background of navy and white designer series paper is from the Mediterranean Blooms DSP. Amazingly this set of paper has a gorgeous array of yellows, oranges, and navy on one side and the other side of all of the designs is a wonderful set of Night of Navy and white. Some of the images are quite large and others, like these, are relatively small. This gives us a selection of patterns that coordinates very well.

We've used some of the new Gold & Silver Trim Combo to enhance the small flower. It's approximately 1/8" wide.

The embellishment dots are the Opal Rounds Assortment in the Mediterranean Blooms Suite of products. We rarely have Navy embellishments so I was particularly happy to see these--a perfect enhancement for our yellow & navy card.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
