Mediterranean Blooms Happy Birthday Quick & Simple Card 

Citrus Blooms

Today, I’m sharing a Quick & Simple card made with products from this suite. I love the colors of the lemons and oranges on the Designer Series Paper, and the blues on the reverse side are gorgeous. I hope you like this card and will consider ordering this suite from me. You won’t regret it.

The Mediterranean Blooms Suite Collection is so pretty in person. I was on the fence about this suite. I’m thrilled I ordered it. I see an online class in July with this suite. Happy Stamping!

Card Directions

  • Cut and score all cardstock and papers as listed under Cutting Directions below.
  • Fold the Basic White Thick Card Base in half on the score line, and burnish it with a Bone Folder.
  • Adhere Early Espresso 4-1/8” x 5-3/8” panel to card front.
  • Die-cut the 3 leaves from the middle of the 3-5/8” x 4-7/8” Garden Green panel, then adhere the 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper to the Garden Green Cardstock panel.
  • Attach Pecan Pie Center stripe 3/8” Ribbon to the middle of the Designer Series Paper panel with the edges overhanging the sides.
  • Using Dimensionals, add the Designer Series Panel to the card front.
  • Stamp the greeting in Early Espresso Ink on a 3” x 3/4” strip of Basic White Cardstock, then adhere this to a 3-1/8” x 7/8” strip of Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Use Dimensionals to adhere the card front over the ribbon.
  • Add leaves under the greeting layers with Glue Dots.
  • Embellish with Adhesive-Backed Transparent Dots.
  • For the inside, stamp the sentiment from the Round We Go stamp set in Garden Green and Daffodil Delight Inks onto a 3-3/4” x 5” Basic White Cardstock panel. Add a 3-3/4” x 5/8” strip of Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the stamped panel. Adhere this panel to a 4” x 5-1/4” panel of Garden Green Cardstock, then adhere to the inside of the card.
  • The Envelope Flap was finished by gluing a 6” x 2-3/8” panel of Designer Series Paper to the flap and trimming any excess paper.
