Whoa – it’s Friday! And what are your plans this weekend – stay at home you say? Us too. Praying things will turn around soon – so many lives lost and families heartbroken….
The card for today is made using Stampin’ Up! Ornate Borders Dies and Ornate Layers Dies. It’s nice they work together so well.This particular border I had not played with yet and it is so gorgeous – it could become a favorite very easily. Here it is…
- Pool Party cs 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
- Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
- Regular Whisper White 2 x 5 plus diecut panel
- Tropical Oasis DSP 2 1/4 x 5 for the diecut plus 2 1/4 x 6 for the envelope flap
- Shimmer Ribbon 1/4″ (from the holiday catalogue
- Praiseworthy Prose stamp set
- Place the floral die cut from the Ornate Borders Dies on the edge of your Pool Party on the long side and run through your die cutting machine. Voila – you have this gorgeous edge! Isn’t it beautiful? There are some leaf like pieces that come out of this you will definitely want to save – just sayin’.
- Adhere this directly to your Thick Whisper White with liquid glue
- With your Ornate Layers Dies, run this through your die cutting machine using the Tropical Oasis DSP
- Run your Whisper White panel through this same machine using the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers Dies.
- Using your stamparatus, stamp your sentiment from the Praiseworthy Prose stamp set with Memento Black ink. Adhere this with liquid glue to the die cut DSP, then to the Whisper White 2 x 5 panel. Isn’t this a perfect sentiment for our times right now? It’s perfect for any time really, but certainly fits what’s going on in the world right now.
- Wrap a length of the Shimmer Ribbon 1/4″ around and tie a bow. Hold in place with a glue dot
- Adhere to the card front with liquid glue and your card front is complete!
For the envelope…
- Adhere 2 1/4 x 6 piece of DSP to the envelope flap. Trim to fit.
- Stamp the heart in the corner of the flap then several hearts on the front with Memento Black ink. This heart is also from Praiseworthy Prose stamp set
I cannot share the inside as this will be for a specific family member and just in case they see this post – well, I can’t share it yet. I’ll definitely share after I’ve given it to them 😘
A couple of things before I sign off…
Stampin’ Up! has updated it’s Clearance Rack and there are some real deals – so check it out!
The Ornate Garden Suite is a premier promotion for the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue. Since it is a premier it is available for a limited time as a suite of products – therefore a much better deal than if purchased individually.
And lastly – there will be anew set of In Colors for 2020-21, so shop those retiring In Colors before it’s too late!
Thanks for stopping by.
May you have a beautiful day.
