Hydrangea Oval Occasions Birthday Card - Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Ink Stamp Share group and the theme is 'New Catalogue Goodies'. I have chosen to use some of the Hydrangea Hill designer series paper with the Oval Occasions stamp set and punch (which comes as a bundle saving 10%). I have used a minimal amount of this dsp because it is so beautiful, it doesn't need much embellishment.  Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of highland heather card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of balmy blue card stock 4" x 5 3/4" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the butterflies
Oval Occasions stamp set
Double oval punch
Butterfly duet punch
Highland heather ink
Multipurpose adhesive
Mini dimensionals
Simply Scored
Bone folder


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

Adhere the balmy blue layer and then the dsp layer leaving a tiny border all the way around on each layer.  

Punch 4 of the small butterflies from the scrap of dsp, I had a small piece left over with some of the main flowers so used that to punch out the butterflies.

Stamp a sentiment on the scrap of whisper white and punch out with the double punch and then layer up on scalloped layer in the balmy blue.

Add the sentiment using dimensionals to the top centre of the card and add the small butterflies with dimensionals around the design.

Add the remaining whisper white layer to the inside of the card.
