Remember the stash I spoke of yesterday – the one with die cuts not yet used on a card? Well – here’s another die cut from All Squared Away using the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP – and yep, it’s a birthday card.

All Squared Away.1

Super simple today, not many layers. This card starts with a card base of Gray Granite card stock. To that is a Basic White panel run through the with one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders. This folder is so delicate and sweet. The die cut mentioned earlier was added to the panel with small amounts of liquid glue. And notice, the flower center has one of the little dots from the embossing folder. 🙂 The next thing I did was stamp the sentiment in Gray Granite ink, also using the All Squared Away stamp set. I added three 2021-2023 In Co0lor Jewels in Pale Papaya then wrapped Gray Granite Baker’s twine around it twice and tied a knot. The twine is from the Essential Baker’s Twine Pack. The Basic White panel was now complete and adhered to the Gray Granite card stock with liquid glue – done!

All Squared Away.2

For the inside, I used an oval stamp from Watercolor Shapes stamp set and Pale Papaya ink to create a spot for the sentiment. I taped of a portion of the stamp I didn’t want to use and inked it with Gray Granite ink, removed the tape and stamped it over the oval. The Basic White panel was adhered to the inside of the Gray granite card base – and voila!

All Squared Away.3

For the envelope I ran more Gray Granite card stock through the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder, this time using the other folder in the two-pack. This is every bit as delicate & sweet. The panel was adhered to the envelope flap and trimmed to fit. Finis… and ready to send.

Yesterdays card was multi-layered and bold while today’s is monochromatic and pretty much single layered. I love that we can do that, show creativity in various ways and still be beautiful. Definitely not something one would find in a store! Handmade at it’s best… Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.
