Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Birthday Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for April! Today we are sharing projects with the theme “for the girls/ladies”. Be sure to hop along with the links at the bottom of my post to see how each talented team member interpreted that theme in their project!

I used the Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog to make this card. What stamp set is girlier….lipstick, heels, perfume?! Plus, I added a few other girly things like: pinks, ribbon with a bow, glitter and rhinestones! I hope you enjoy the card!

The Paper Cuts 

  • Petal Pink Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ X 3 7/8″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 5/16″ (envelope) and 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5 5/16″ x 4 1/16″ (front), four of the 3rd largest square die from Stitched Shapes Dies, and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)

The Creating

  • I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on the inside panel with Tuxedo Black Ink. Then, the lipstick, shoe, perfume and sentiment from the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set on the Stitched Squares. I used Petal Pink, Smoky Gray and Seaside Spray Light and Dark Blends Combos to color the images. I added Wink of Stella to the lipstick sleeve, the perfume bottle edges & trim, and the outside of the shoe.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP panel to the front white panel and then both to the card base. Then I added the inside panel and the DSP strip.
  • The decorated Stitched Shapes squares are added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a piece of the White Faux Linen Trim from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied it in a bow. The front is blinged with three Rhinestone Basic Jewels in a triangular pattern.
  • The remaining strip of DSP was adhered to the envelope flap with liquid glue and the excess trimmed with my Paper Snips. Super fun!

    I kept waiting for someone to use this set—it shouts feminine! So glad you did and to create a beautiful card too. Love your little squares and bow on the front. Great design. TFS
