Stampin' Up True Beauty Birthday Card


Today I have the privilege of being a guest designer for this weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Here is this week's board: 
My card uses the center column down: Bright Colors-Flowers-Stripes.

When I first saw this board I immediately thought of Stampin' Up Butterfly Kisses DSP the colors are so bright and festive.

For the card front, I dry embossed a panel of Starry Sky card stock with Stampin' Up Gingham Embossing Folder.  I adhered a strip of Stampin' Up Butterfly Kisses DSP.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Parakeet Party mat.  
I stamped flowers using Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Fresh Freesia from Stampin' Up True Beauty Stamp Set.  I stamped leaves using Parakeet Party ink.  I die cut a piece of Crushed Curry card stock and the stamped images with Stampin' Up Organic Beauty Dies.
I ran a piece of Stampin' Seal on the card front and wrapped a piece of Parakeet Party twine from Stampin' Up 2022-24 In Color Bakers Twine in loops.  I adhered the die cuts to the card front with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Go To Greetings Stamp Set with Starry Sky on a strip of Shimmery White card stock.  I cut a flag in the end and adhered it on the card front.

I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Elegant Faceted Gems.
The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock with a sentiment stamped from Stampin' Up Charming Sentiments Stamp Set using Starry Sky ink.  I adhered a strip of DSP to the panel.  I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat.
