Hi Folks! In yesterday’s post I shared two cards but gave instructions for only one… so today you get full disclosure on Card #2   <:O). Funny me, right? So here’s the card again..,.

Ornamental Envelopes Card #2 a

One of the things about this particular stamp and die set is the variety, how very different we can create from one bundle. To create this wreath I stamped with Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. TIP: To be certain I stayed in a circle, I had used a 2 1/4″ circle punch to pop out a circle. I laid that on the Whisper White panel and stamped around the edge of it …. perfect for creating this wreath!  On  a Whisper White scrap I stamped several of the triple flowers in both Crumb Cake and Real Read inks and die cut them with the dies from the coordinating Envelopes dies. I placed them around the wreath where I wanted and adhered some with liquid glue and some with dimensionals. To add some sparkle I added the lovely Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to many of the floral centers. then added three gold bows using the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, attaching them with liquid glue. I took another length of the gold trim and wrapped it around the wreath, encircling some of the flowers, using liquid glue under the raised flowers to adhere.

 

I then took a strip of the beautiful Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered it to the lower portion with liquid glue. Over this is a die cut in Granny Apple Green from the Painted Labels dies. This I adhered with liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White scrap and die cut it with the Ornate Frames Dies. This was put on dimensionals and voila! the card front just needs the layering panels: adhere to Granny Apple Green with liquid glue; then this panel is put on dimensionals and goes on the Crumb Cake card base. OH! Almost forgot a VERY IMPORTANT Step…..use the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to emboss the front of the card, spritzing it lightly with water to get a good emboss.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on the Whisper White panel then adhered a couple of the leftover die cut flowers. The panel was adhered to Granny Apple Green cs, then to the inside Crumb Cake card base. Card is complete!

For the envelope I took a piece of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap, then die cut it with one of the wonderful edges curved perfectly for envelopes – hence Envelopes Dies!!! This gives that final elegant appearance and completes your card.
