Today’s card is made with some brand new products from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the January-February Sale-a-Bration (SAB) Brochure, both of which go live today! The Approaching Perfection stamp set is a SAB item that you can get for FREE with any purchase of $50 or more! (That’s before shipping and tax.) The True Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is part of the Love You Always Suite Collection from the new Mini Catalog. I’m so excited that you can finally order from the new catalog! As a demonstrator, I’ve been able to play with these products for a while now, and I can tell you that this new Mini Catalog has some truly fabulous goodies in it.

True Love Approaching Perfection Happy Birthday card #stampcandy

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Melon Mambo CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • True Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • white CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Approaching Perfections stamp set:

  • sentiment in Melon Mambo ink onto a scrap of white CS

Cut using the Painted Labels Dies:

  • sentiment

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • some flowers from another piece of the same DSP pattern

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Melon Mambo CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP layer glued onto the Melon Mambo CS layer
  • sentiment glued onto the DSP layer
