Paisley Birthday Card

Welcome back! I made a birthday card for my best friend today! And here's how it was done ; ) I also wanted to let you know that I will be making videos in a bit when I buy a camera stand. My old one broke : ( but no worries! I'm purchasing one soon! Enjoy the tutorial ; )

The supplies I used:
Stampin' Up! Word Window Punch
Stampin' Up Modern Label Punch
Ignore the 3 heart punch I decided to use the Stampin' Up 5 Petal Punch
Corner Rounder
Some matching ribbon
Stampin' Up Teeny Tiny Phrases Stamp Set
Brown ink
Purple, Blue, White Cardstock
Some Patterned Paper
Swiss Dot Embossing Folder

I cut a 8.5x11 Purple cardstock and scored it at 4 1/4 to creat a  standard 4 1/4x5.5. Then I took my patterend paper, isn't pretty?? I got it from hobby lobby a while back and I had to use it! But I cut that at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Then I adhered the two together.

I cut a piece of white cardstock 3x 2.5 and ran it through the cuttlebug between the swiss embossing folder! Idk about you but swiss dot is my favorite! It goes with everything!

Now I cut a piece of blue cardstock about 2.5x1 and then I corner rounded the white and blue cardstock edges!

This is my favorite punch set, Stampin' Up! Word Window Punch, and Modern Label Punch. I punched out of the purple cardstock with the Modern Label Punch, and then punched the Word Window Punch out of the white cardstock!

I used the Stampin' Up!  5 petal punch and punched out the Purple, white, and blue cardstock!
I tied a long piece of ribbon about 15 inches into a knot, for ribbon instructions, please comment below this tutorial if you'd like to see a ribbon tutorial video.

I adhered the white cardstock and added square dimensionals to the blue cardstock and place it close to the middle.

Lots happened here. I stamped the white punched out cardstock with Stampin' Up! Teeny tiny wishes stamp set in a brown ink and put dimensionals on the back of it. I adhered the purple modern label onto the blue and then put the word window punch on top. Now I put one square dimensional on the purple and blue flower. And I put TWO square dimensionals on the white flower.

 I placed the flowers at an appropraite distance! Enjoy your card! ; )


  1. Thanks for the step by step views, my computer hook up is too slow for videos, so I like them this way. I am now a new follower, and would be honored if you would follow me also, although I am not as talented as you are. Today I am up with a frugal scrapbooking tip. Love Penny

    1. Hey Penny! Thanks for your subscription! and sure thing I'll check it out!

    1. Thats how I am with the color yellow, I'm not really drawn to the color as much as blue and green and purple! I'm always glad I could help!

  3. Love that Swiss Dot embossing folder.
