Lilacs For You Birthday Card

Continuing to use my old two step stamping floral sets!  For this card it's lilacs made with the SU! 'Blossoms Abound' set.

I love how the new SU! In Colour Sweet Sugarplum looks with Rich Razzleberry so I stamped my lilacs in those colours - stamping off the Sweet Sugarplum once first.  I used Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz inks for the stem and leaves.   I made a Rich Razzleberry card base measuring 5 3/4" square, added some dotty Rich Razzleberry paper on the side of my stamped panel, added a strip of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, rounded the corners and adhered the panel to a mat layer of Sweet Sugarplum CS.  I added a an Old Olive border cut with one of the dies from the SU! 'Flourish' Thinlits die set.  I'd stamped an extra lilac flowers image and I fussy cut that and popped it up.  I stamped the three small flower images but used a punch to cut those out - not perfect but close enough and I didn't really fancy fussy cutting those teeny tiny shapes!


Here's how I decorated the inside of the card and the envelope flap.  I popped up the stamped and die cut sentiment label over the top of a strip of Sweet Sugarplum CS that I'd die cut using a Memory Box 'Grosgrain Ribbons' die.


The SU! 'Field Flowers' set will feature on my next two step stamped floral card, I'll share that here on the blog soon!
