Inspired by Color – Sweet & Rustic Birthday Card

Stampin Up Oh So Succulent Birthday Card - Mary Fish stampinupToday’s birthday card has a sweet, rustic charm thanks to the color combination of Blushing Bride, Garden Green, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  This combination along with dozens of other fresh and modern color combinations can be found on my Stampin’ Pretty Inspired by Color board on Pinterest.

FOLLOW-UP NOTE:  I believe we finally figured out the glitch for some of you who did not get the photos for my post and project last Friday (including the re-post).  The French “é” added to the image file (Médaillon) by me was the culprit.  C’est la vie!  Thanks for your patience while my computer gurus at Integrant Services did the detective work!  You can view (hopefully, with photos) “You Say Medallion – I Say Médaillon Sur Mesure” here.


  • The layers of Very Vanilla and Soft Suede card stock provide the neutral backdrop.
  • A panel of Very Vanilla card stock is stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in Soft Suede and propped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The leaves are stamped and cut from the Jar of Love Bundle.
  • Sweet Sentiment!  The sentiment, from Suite Sentiments stamp set (on the list of My Favorite Things), is stamped in Soft Suede ink and cut and layered using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The delicate scallops add to the rustic charm.

  • A simple sentiment with a fancy font from the Cool Treats Photopolymer stamp set is added to the interior.
  • Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack on the interior and envelope flap pulls the project together beautifully.
