Todays card features the fabulous Flowering Foils DSP that was available as a free item during Sale-a-bration. I know… I shouldn’t be promoting this DSP, but honestly, ANY DSP could be used and a coordinating cardstock to create this card. I love the layout and the elegance and the simplicity.
Before sharing the card I want to apologize for not posting the past couple of days. I have been cleaning my craft room – and quite frankly could not get to my stamping table. 😒 What a nightmare! Having said that, it’s still a work in progress – not quite finished, but workable…
Here are the deets…
- Cardstock (Pool Party) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 3 1/2 x 4 1/4
- DSP of choice – 3 cut to 1 x 4 (this is Flowering Foils and I colored it with Stampin Blends – Light/ Dark Pool Party, Light/ Dark Granny Apple Green, Dark Daffodil Delight)
- White Crinkle Ribbon
- Detailed Band Dies
After coloring the Flowering Foils DSP, using your grid paper as a guide, adhere the center DSP to the smaller card stock with liquid glue. Starting with this center piece allows for perfect edges and balancing. Wrap the Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon around this and tie a bow. Secure with a glue dot. Stamp your sentiment (this is from Ornate Thanks stamp set – new for the 2020-21 catalogue and available now!) with Memento Black ink and cut with your Detailed Bands Dies. Adhere this diecut with dimensionals. Adhere this entire section, centering it, on the card front. Voila! Your card front is complete 😏
For the inside… Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4… stamp your sentiment using Pool Party ink and the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Remember this is available now as a premier suite of products! Adhere a scrap of the Flowering Foils DSP 1/4″ from bottom of cs. Adhere using liquid glue to the inside of the card.
For the envelope… I colored a 2 1/4 x 6 piece of the Flowering Foils DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap using liquid glue. Trim to fit. And voila again… your card is ready for mailing!
