It’s Tuesday… still going strong into the week. My card today is an anniversary card using products that are new and some products retiring the end of June. I’m trying really hard to use the retiring items but combining them with new. Stampin’ Up! does such an amazing job of coordinating their products that it’s fairly easy to do this.

Elegantly Said Anniversary.1

The Forever Gold Laser-Cut SDSP really makes this card stand out. And it’s placed against Flowering Cactus Product Medley from the Mini Catalog. The sentiment is from the Elegantly Said bundle and the tag is created with the Tailor Made Tag Dies, both of which are new in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Let me break down how I made this card…

Adhere a panel of the DSP from the Flowering Cactus Product Medley (if you have the stamp set bundle, the refill kit has this DSP!) to a card base of Mossy Meadow. Cut down a coordinating piece of the same DSP packet and adhere the Forever Gold Laser-Cut SDSP with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Basic White the same size as the SDSP and adhered that to the back for strength. I wrapped the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim around and tied a knot, securing the knot with a glue dot. (this trim is part of the Dandy Garden suite of products). Stamp the sentiment from Elegantly Said stamp set on Basic White in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut with the Tailor Made Tag Dies. Die cut another the sameI size in Mossy Meadow and adhere together with liquid glue, off-setting a bit. Adhere to the card with dimensionals. Slip a Simply Elegant Trim in Gold through the hole and tie a bow, attaching it to the Braided Linen Trim. Add three Gilded Gems to the sentiment banner. Add dimensionals to the back of this panel and adhere to the card front – voila!

Elegantly Said Anniversary, inside.2

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White panel. I found a ‘frame’ in my stash cut from Mossy Meadow card stock and adhered that to the panelwith liquid glue. (It’s easy to create a similar frame using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.) This Basic White panel was adhered to the card base and the card was complete.

For the envelope, I adhered a strip of the same DSP from the Flowering Cactus Product Medley to the envelope flap and that was it.

Elegantly Said Anniversary.3

A friend has placed an order for several cards (20 to be exact!) of various needs: birthday, anniversary, masculine, congratulations. They need to be fairly simple cards with not a lot of dimension. This has some, but should be able to be sent with regular postage. Since this is a decent size order, I will be posting more of these to share with you 🙂 I hope you find them worthy… Card cuts are listed below.

Products for todays project are from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. They may be found in the list below. I’ve made it easy for you to simply ‘add all to cart’. If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler. As a thank you to my customers, when the order is between $50-$150 I offer a SU! item of your choice valued at $10. Remember to use MY NEW HOST CODE – 4A6RJ2TA . When the order is over $150, you still receive that free gift from me, but SU! has Stampin’ Rewards that may be used for additional products, so don’t use the host code at that time.
