Primrose Birthday

I created this card for my big sis for her birthday several months ago. Her favorite color is pink, in case it wasn't obvious. Take a look!

  • Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Beautiful Birthday
  • Card Stock: Primrose Petals, Whisper White
  • Ink: Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Versamark
  • Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Clear embossing powder, Heat Tool, Sponge Dauber, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Paper Piercer, Stampin’ Pierce Mat, Silver Brads, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Primrose Petals Stitched Satin ribbon

I started off by cutting a piece of Primrose Petals card stock 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored it at 4-1/4”. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4” x 5-1/4”. I stamped the swirls from Everything Eleanor onto the bottom of the card stock several times in Versamark ink. I covered the stamped image with Clear embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and heated it with my Heat Tool until it was shiny. I sponged on Primrose Petals and then Raspberry Ripple ink.  I adhered this onto the card front then wrapped a piece of Primrose Petals Stitched Satin ribbon around the card and tied it into a knot.

Next I stamped the greeting from Beautiful Birthday onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Primrose Petals ink. Then I cut out the greeting with the Apothecary Accents Framelit in the Big Shot. I used my Paper Piercer and Stampin’ Pierce Mat to pierce a hole in each end of the label and added a silver brad. I adhered this onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simple yet pretty, what do you think? 


  1. I think that I really need to get the Everything Eleanor set...if only for this fabulous swirl!!! Your sister will love her card, not just for the color, but for how beautiful it is!

  2. This card is so simple yet so elegant! I want to make one in every color.
