Happiness Blooms Card

Today I did a FB live, making this lovely card.  I'm afraid the LIVE didn't go as smoothly as when I practiced earlier in the day.  I was a bit scattered, so I thought I'd share the card and directions here for this particular card.

The card base is Calypso Coral, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  Attach the 3 3/4" x 5" chosen designer paper to a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White cardstock (c/s).  Tie a bow from a length of Call Me Clover ribbon around these 2 layers, then attach to the card base.  Next, cut a Whisper White piece of 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" c/s.  Cut a 2nd piece of the same designer paper pattern at 3" x 4".  Attach to the card base and layers, popping up with dimensionals.   I chose this measurement so you could get several pieces from 1 sheet of paper.  Using your Big Shot, cut a Calypso Coral scalloped circle -- the size is just larger than the Whisper White c/s circle that is stamped with the sentiment  (I used Calypso Coral ink) and punched out with a 2 1/4" round punch.  I popped these circle layers up with dimensionals again.  Now, punch out 2 small flowers using one of the flower punches from the Bitty Blooms punch pack and Grapefruit Grove c/s.  The leaves are punched from Call Me Clover c/s scrap.  I used mini dimensionals to hold the leaves in place under the flowers and attached them to the bottom of the circle.  The final touch is the Happiness Blooms enamel dots - I used the Call Me Clover ones as I thought the coral/grapefruit color would get lost in the flower.  Use a Take Your Pick tool to place these dots -- I couldn't find the attachment I needed to place them, which made my video even funnier!  

This card plus 9 other cards using the stamp set, Strong and Beautiful, the Happiness Blooms designer paper, and matching colors, are all part of a class I'm offering on Saturday, March 9th.  Although it's too late to get into the product-based class, I do have some pre-cut card kits available.    The cost is $30, plus shipping if you don't live locally (I'm estimating $7-8 for shipping).  Contact me at and I'll send you a PayPal Invoice.  I'm sharing another card tomorrow -- unfortunately my phone battery died before I could make the 2nd card this morning.  

For a truly entertaining time, check out my FB live on my FB page, Jeanne Nielsen, the Card Lady (like my page), or join my group for a replay of this video plus other cards I'm making at Papercrafting with Jeannie.  The supply list is below!  Thanks for checking me out today!
