Fun Field and Flower Birthday Card and #TGIFC303 Sketch Challenge

Do you have a favorite Sale-a-Bration product?  Mine is the Field and Flower Designer Series Paper.  In preparation for March, I wanted to make a birthday card with a green theme, and this worked out really nice!

I started with a Just Jade Cardstock card base: cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored a 4 1/4".

The first layer is from the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (retired), cut with a die-cutting and embossing machine using the Stitched Rectangles Die (3 3/4" x 5 1/8"), and adhered to the card front with Stampin' Seal.

I used a second Stitched Rectangle Die to crop out another layer (3" x 4 3/8") from the Flower and Field DSP (a current Sale-a-Bration item).  Before adhering it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, I wrapped Crushed Curry Seam Binding Ribbon around the DSP and secured the ends on the back side with Mini Glue Dots.  (The ribbon was from the August 2019 Paper Pumpkin The Gift of Fall Kit, but you can use the current 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and color it in with Crushed Curry Ink Refill.)

Then, I used the Tailored Tag Punch to punch a label in Basic Black Cardstock and Bumblebee Cardstock.  The Approaching Perfection Stamp Set sentiment (another current free Sale-a-Bration item) was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The black punch piece was cut in two on the horizontal and glued to the back of the Bumblebee punch before gluing it to the card.

Lastly, I tied a pretty bow and secured it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

I was inspired by the #TGIF303 Sketch Challenge, and I hope I inspired you too!

Don't forget that Sale-a-Bration goes through 28 February, so you only have a few more weeks to take advantage of all the free products you can earn!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time....happy crafting! 😊
