Narrow Note Card Birthday Wishes & NEW Host Code Offer!

Create a simple birthday narrow note card using Stampin Up Varied Vases - Mary Fish StampinUp Ideas

I used a Stampin’ Up! Narrow Note Card and Envelope for today’s soft and feminine birthday card.  The 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 size is charming for gift giving or tucking a little surprise in an unexpected place (lunch “box,” suitcase, mirror, pillow). 

NEW JUNE HOST CODE (3VA9ZNH3)!  Earn the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes FREE when you place a qualifying order ($75 or more before shipping and tax) thru me using my June host code.  See below for more details!

The 2018-2019 Annual catalog began yesterday (details here)!  The Varied Vases Bundle is officially on sale.  This is the stamp set and punch that I partnered with Stampin’ Up! to design in celebration of reaching my $1 million in sales milestone last year.  Watch my Varied Vases video (oodles of tips) and get four FREE PDF tutorials of my previous projects using the bundle here.


Use a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Narrow Note Card (4 1/2 x 2 1/2) and coordinating envelope.  The cards are cut, scored and ready to go.

Cut a 4 x 2 Crumb Cake pattern from Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive to a 4 1/2 x 2 1/4 piece of Petal Pink Card Stock.  Adhere both to the narrow note card base.

Crop the vase and orchids using the second to largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform (to help keep the die in place).

Use the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool to stamp the small vase from Varied Vases Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Petal Pink card stock.  Crop with with the Vases Builder Punch.

Stamp the birthday sentiment (Varied Vases Photopolymer Stamp Set) using the Stamparatus and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Petal Pink card stock.  Crop using a die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies, the Big Shot and Magnetic Platform.  Cut off left side as shown and adhere to circle with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The perfect touch!  Add Petal Pink adhesive pearls (Share What You Love Artisan Pearls) to the orchid flower centers.

    I am particularly excited about this card because, not unlike many paper crafters, I have much too much inventory of “smallish” scraps that I just cannot discard. This is the perfect solution to my problem. You never disappoint – your ideas are always fresh, bright, delightful.
