Remember How Special You Are


My favorite paper for using COPIC markers is Stamper's Select White from Papertrey Ink. When I ordered a new stash a couple of weeks ago, I saw a stamp set called "Harvest Berries" that I immediately fell in love with. Here is a birthday card that is a CASE of a card made by Betsy Veldman. It is featured on her blog, and in the Papertrey Ink gallery. I used a monochromatic color theme, but changed little else - Betsy designed a beautiful layout - just perfect for the leaves and the sentiment!

Remember How Special


Note: Finished card size is 5" x 7"


Perfect Plum (SU!)7" x 10"; scored at 5"
Pale Plum (SU!)4 3/4" x 6 3/4", and
additional scraps


Perfect Plum (SU!)
Pale Plum (SU!)


Harvest Berries (Papertrey Ink)


Frosted Lace Stickles (Ranger)
Ribbon (Offray)
3-D Foam Squares (3L)
Glue dots
Zip-Dry glue
ATG (Scotch)
Scissors (Cutter Bee)
Rotary trimmer (Fiskars)



Cut the base card from the dark purple card stock, measuring 7" x 10", score at 5", and fold.


Cut the image layer from the light purple card stock, measuring 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". Stamp the small leaf images in light purple ink along the sides of this layer. Stamp the large leaf images in light purple ink at the top and bottom of the layer - this will create a "shadow" image behind the dark purple leaves.

Stamp the sentiment in dark purple ink in the center of the layer. Adhere a strip of ribbon under the sentiment.

Mount the image layer to the front of the card.


Stamp the large leaf images on the scrap pieces of light purple card stock using the dark purple ink, and trim closely. Mount them on the card front using foam squares, slightly to the left of the matching light purple images. Highlight the berry trios with the sparkly Stickles.

Tie a multi-loop bow, and mount just below the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
