Pootlers Colour Challenge Birthday Card

 Hi Everyone,

Recently I made a card for a team colour challenge and as well as combining colours, I wanted to combine different sets to showcase how versatile Stampin' Up! products can be. I have combined one piece of designer series paper, two stamp sets and three sets of dies with the three colours of the challenge. I hope that you like it and will give it - or something like it - a try.


1 piece of crumb cake card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" 
1 piece of cherry cobbler card stock 4" x 5 3/4"
Scraps of pool party card stock for the flowers
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of designer series paper (Plaid Tidings) 3 7/8" x 5 5/5"
Scraps of silver foil for the leaves
Poinsettia Petals stamp set
Poinsettia dies
Many Mates stamp set
Forever Flourishing dies
Stitched So Sweetly dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Cherry cobbler ink
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the crumb cake card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Add the cherry cobbler card stock to the front of the card leaving a small border and then add the dsp, leaving a small border.

Stamp two of the full poinsettia flowers on the pool party card stock using cherry cobbler ink and then stamp the sentiment on the scrap of whisper white. At the same time, you can stamp the sentiment on the larger piece of whisper white for the inside of the card.

Die cut the poinsettia flowers and some leaves from the scraps of silver foil.  Then using the third smallest scalloped rectangle, die cut the sentiment for the card front.

Adhere the sentiment to the centre of the card front using dimensionals.  Arrange the flowers and the leaves around the sentiment using dimensionals for the flowers and tuck the leaves underneath and adhere using glue.  Adhere the whisper white piece to the inside of the card and it's finished.
