Mixed Border Meets Swirly Bird – 30 Day Card Challenge, Day 13

Stampin Up Mixed Border Birthday Card Ideas - Shannon Jaramillo Stampinup

Yesterday’s card showed how well Mint Macaron coordinated with Peekaboo Peach, today’s card is pairing it up with Island Indigo, also a stunning combination. It feels very fresh and clean.

The Details:

  • The Mixed Borders photopolymer stamp set has five different border stamps that can be aligned either horizontally or vertically. Each border has a blank space off to the right side that can be filled in with any of the four sentiments included. The sentiments can be used with any of the layering framelit dies; squares, circles or even ovals. It is a very versatile set!
  • I included several layers on this card, dimensions below, from case base to top layer:
    • Card Base is Island Indigo, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
    • The next layer is Thick Whisper White cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • The Mint Macaron layer is cut to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
    • The top layer is also Thick Whisper White and is cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″

  • The simple flower border stamp has been stamped four times in Mint Macaron. I used the MISTI for stamping. The grid lines make perfect spacing easy, but the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig would work very well also.
  • I stamped the birthday sentiment first in Mint Macaron, masking off the “Amazing” part, and then switched the masking and stamped “Amazing” in Island Indigo. I then ran the sentiment through the Big Shot with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and layered it on top of a die cut scallop in Island Indigo.

  • The flowers are found in the Swirly Bird Stamp and Die Bundle. I stamped them in both colors and die cut them using the coordinating dies and then scattered them over the front of the card. They all have a pearl center and sparkle with Wink of Stella 🙂

  • I pulled the fun sentiment for the inside of the card from the Happy Happenings Photopolymer stamp set and stamped it in Island Indigo. There is a “grunge-y” stamp included in Swirly Birds that I thought would be fun to add to the card in both Mint Macaron and Island Indigo. I did stamp off twice each time to get the muted colors.
  • The beautiful patterns of the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper were used to line the envelope and inspired the color palette for today’s project.
