Stampin Up Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies Birthday Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

My birthday card for the Pals Spring Blog Hop offers a simple layout and crisp colors!  This card is for my dear friend, Cheree!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • “Make a wish” and dot the “i” with a sweet daisy cropped with a die from the Stampin’ Up! Succulent Garden Framelits Dies.  Perfect for spring and summer!

  • The Basic Black “wish” created with Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies really pops against Crushed Curry.
  • Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies create the darling border and offer a variety of sizes in squares, circles and ovals.

  1. I’m sure you’ve said it somewhere, but how do you do the flaps on the envelopes? Do you just cut a piece of paper to a size (which is….?), adhere it, then cut around it with snips? Thanks! 🙂

  2. WOW! I absolutely LOVE your card! I LOVE how you did the “wish” and dotted the “i” with a daisy!

  3. Darling card Mary. My wish (which I know you will make come true) .;….. Is to keep making the FANTASTIC card that you post here.

  4. This is the cutest !! Absolutely love the “Daisy Dot ” for the letter . I have that WISH ….Now I think I will see what I can do to REFRESH it like you did !!

  5. Adorable…clean…crisp…just a total Mary Fish card! Love everything about it, especially the flower!
