In Symmetry Birthday for PP556

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
Since it’s the fifth Sunday of the month, Jaydee is hosting a fun Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.
My Tic-Tac-Toe Inspiration: Feminine - Birthday - Florals

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges are a great way to inspire your creativity. Just pick a row and start creating…easy peasy! I needed a birthday card for a friend, so that was where I started on the board. Then I needed a floral element and I instantly knew I wanted to use one of my favorites, the In Symmetry Stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo:
I just love the big, bold blossoms in this suite! The stamp set is photopolymer, which makes it really easy to build the flowers since you can see through the stamps to get perfect placement. There is also a coordinating leaf punch that you can bundle with the stamp set to save a little money. It’s listed in the supply list at the end of the post if you want to check out out. I really like how this card came out and I hope you do as well. :) 
Card Measurements & Details: 
  • Calypso Coral Card Base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4"
  • Just Jade Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”, stamp sentiment in Just Jade ink
  • Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper: 1-3/4” x 5-1/8” 
  • Just Jade Cardstock: 1/2” x 5-1/8”, die-cut left side using the scalloped border from the Penned Flowers Dies
  • Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper: 2-3/4” x 3-1/4”

  • Basic White Cardstock (inside card): 4” x 5-1/4”, stamp sentiment in Just Jade ink 
  • Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper (inside card): 3/4” x 5-1/4"
Finally, a peek inside the card! I actually needed a belated birthday card (oops), so I used the sentiment from the In Your Words stamp set which worked out perfectly. This is a fun set filled with all-occasion sentiments. This stamp set can be earned for FREE as a host reward during Sale-A-Bration (through 9/30) with a $300 order….or if you host a party and orders go over $300. I also added another strip of the fun Sweet Symmetry DSP to coordinate from the front of the card.
