Good Monday Morning. It’s start of a new week so fresh ideas, fresh thoughts, fresh everything. Shall we? My card today begins with the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP, colored with Stampin’ Blends, then layered on Early Espresso card stock.

Stampin' UP! Alphabest Bundle, Hello

This particular sheet of Abigail Rose DSP is absolutely stunning – and I chose to color it with Stampin’ Blends: far right is Pale Papaya, center is Cajun Craze, and to the left is Pumpkin Pie – variations on the orange family. You COULD color all the flowers or… you could choose not to color any. This is what i did. The strips are adhered to Early Espresso then wrapped with Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya, then adhered to Pale Papaya card stock. When deciding what to do for a sentiment, I brought out the Best Label Punch that punches the letters perfectly, and the coordinating Alphabest stamp set. The letters are stamped in Early Espresso ink before punching them from the Basic White card stock. Each was adhered with dimensionals over the ribbon. Dimensionals were added to the back of the Pale Papaya panel and adhered to Crumb Cake card base – and the card front was done.

Stampin' Up! Alphabest Bundle, Hello.2

For the inside, I wanted it really simple for a special note: Basic White panel adhered to Pale Papaya, then a 1/2″ strip of a different Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP across the bottom. This was added to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base & voila – our card is complete!

Stampin' UP! Alphabest Bundle, Hello.3

For the envelope, more of the original pattern of Abigail Rose DSP for the flap, trimmed to fit, then a 1/2″ strip adhered to the bottom of the envelope front. Now if I choose, I can go back and add a sentiment to the inside when I need a special something or write a lengthy note. I love having cards available.
