Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish with Layers

WooHoo! It is for many a l-o-n-g weekend! Happy Memorial Day celebrations. Thanks you Veterans for your service to our country. We DO appreciate you! I’ve another easy card for you today, creating with the Deckled Rectangles Dies and Designer Series Paper, Awash in Beauty 12 x 12, and the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.1

This card has many layers and it’s colorful. Polished Pink is one of the In Colors from last year and it is b-r-i-g-h-t! And… it has made, in my opinion, this particular pattern or patterns of DSP really pop.

  • Begin with a card base of Polished pink. Layer the Basic White panel, then the DSP (Awash in Beauty) that has been die cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Dies. Adhere these together as shown.
  • Using the 4th largest of the Deckled Rectangles, cut another of the Polished Pink. Layer a panel of Basic White then the final layer of Awash in Beauty, also die cut with the Deckled Rectangles. Adhere all together.
  • Wrap these layers with 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and secure in back with Stampin’ Seal
  • Wrap Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink directly over the Organdy Ribbon and secure in back with more Stampin’ Seal. Slip a length of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon under the Organdy and tie a bow on the far left.
  • Stamp the ‘Hello’ in Mossy Meadow ink from the Biggest Wish stamp set and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.
  • Stamp the ‘friend’ from the same stamp set (love the varied fonts here!) in Polished Pink ink and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of this word and add it to the die cut circle.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the die cut circle and add it over the ribbon. For centering, I used the bottom of the word ‘hello’ to line up with the bottom of the ribbon
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle and the front is complete.

True confessions… I have not completed the inside of this card. I simply could not decide what I wanted. I do not have, but am ordering today, the True Beauty Bundle that coordinates with this DSP. When it arrives, I will complete the inside and share it with you. For now, I have used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut an inner layer to decorate. It is, of course in Basic White.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers, inside

For the envelope… more of the Mossy Meadow Awash in Beauty DSP for the flap. For the front of the envelope, I took an edge of the rectangle die cut, trimmed the ends and added it to the bottom. Once that coordinating True Beauty Bundle is here, I will add one of the floral stamps :O)

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Bundle

Hello and happy Friday! We have had cool, rainy weather lately and this weekend is to be 93 degrees! WOW… hard to believe the contrast min temps. Whatever your plans are this weekend, just be safe while you’re having fun. My card today uses the Blossoming Happiness Dies for the background and I used the Medium Daisy Punch for the flower. This was the first I used these Dies and I’m hooked – love this background die! Here’s the card…

Happiness Abounds Friend.1

The Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP has some beautiful papers in it. I decided to use the ‘back side’ for the daisy using the Fresh Fresia design and the Daffodil Delight design for the crosswise banner. I think it pulls everything together. For the center of the flower, I used a die from the Poppy Moments Dies, then popped a Glossy Dots Assortment in the Daffodil Delight for the flower center and two other dots.Here’s the step by step…

  • Die cut the background with the largest of the dies in Blossoming Happiness Dies – moving the die so it cut in two places, on a piece of Basic White card stock. This was mounted on a Thick Basic White card base.
  • Punch three daisies from Tea Boutique 6×6 in Fresh Fresia. Adhere together with liquid glue. Die cut a center for the flower using another piece of the Tea Boutique 6×6 but in Daffodil Delight, using the Poppy Moments Dies. Add to the flower with a mini dimensional. Add a Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight to the Daisy.
  • Cut a strip of the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP in Daffodil Delight 3/4″ x about 4 and cut an angle at one end. For contrast add a length of Starry Sky about 5/8″ x 3″ and add to the back of the DSP with liquid glue. Add dimensionals to the back and add to the card front. Add the daisy with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the word ‘friend’ in Starry Sky ink using the Happiness Bounds stamp set. Card front done!
Happiness Abounds Friend, inside

For the inside of the card… Stamp the very sweet bouquet in Memento ink. With Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, color the flowers. Add the bow with 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Starry Sky with a glue dot. Of course this was on a Basic White panel. Adhere to the inside and bingo… card done!

Happiness Abounds Friend.3

For the envelope.. add more of the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, same as the front of the card. Stamp the same cute bouquet to the envelope front in Memento ink and color the flowers with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

This is such a lovely feminine card and I really, really like it ~ hope you do as well.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles take Two

Happy post Mother’s Day – I hope all those nurturing women realize how precious they are! Today’s card will put a mile on your face: bright, cheerful and well, just lovely. Let’s have a look.

Sending Smiles take 2

I’ve used the new Sending Smiles bundle (coordinating Sending Dies), Fern 3D Embossing Folder (it’s gorgeous!) 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP and 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots. For the sentiment I used Nature’s Prints stamp set – also a newbie, Lovely Layers Vellum and the Banners Pick a Punch. You could take this same layout and create this card using all the new In Colors. I haven’t, but you could. Let’s do the step by step…

  • Run a panel of Basic White through the Fern 3D embossing Folder (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). This folder makes a very nice impression. If you want it a bit more, you can lightly spray it with water and it leaves a deeper impression.
  • Add this panel to a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece 2 x 3 1/2 from Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP
  • Cur another piece from the Layering Vellum pack that is 2 x 3
  • Place the two panels at an angle on the card front and adhere. To do that with the vellum panel use just a bit of Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the flower in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White scrap & die cut. Set aside.
  • Stamp the larger stem in the new Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. Stamp it again in Garden Green and die cut both. I removed the Garden green leaves from the stem with paper snips and added them to the Parakeet Party stem, off-setting a bit so both colors show: the single leaf was added with liquid glue, the others with dimensionals. Adhere the stem directly to the card front with liquid glue, then add the flower on dimensionals
  • I added a banner (5/8 by about 3 3/4) from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet. The end was trimmed with the Banners Pick a punch, then adhered with dimensionals.
  • I used Nature’s Prints stamp set for my sentiment, stamped in Memento ink – cuz I really really like the font. This was die cut with the amazing Stylish Shapes Dies. Add this to the card front, dimensionals on the top & liquid glue on the banner.
  • For a final touch, I popped on two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Parakeet Party and the card front was done.
Sending Smiles take two, inside

I kept the inside super easy but wanted the colors to come through. A 4 x 5 1/4 panel of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet was added to the inside with liquid glue. Then I cut a panel of Basic White 3 3/4 x 5, stamped the flower in Sweet Sorbet, center with Daffodil Delight and the stem with Parakeet Party, adhered it to the inside and bingo.

Sending Smiles take 2

For the envelope, I created the very same flower for the envelope front: stem in Parakeet Party, flower in Sweet Sorbet and flower center in Daffodil Delight. The flap got more of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP, this time in Parakeet Party – done, done. Love how cheerful and friendly this card is.

Stampin’ Up! Eden Hugs

Hello… it’s Wednesday… another 1″ of rain last night after 2 1/2″ in the early morning. That’s a lot of rain! And today ~ gale force winds starting soon @ 17 mph and going up from there. Leaves are beginning to turn, so fall it is. My card today uses the new Eden Garden bundle available to customers Nov 2. I’ll be using this bundle again on Friday in a totally different way… hint, hint. But for today..

Eden Hugs.1

There is LOTS of white space on this card. But it’s elegant with that stunning die cut along the bottom using the Eden Dies. I added Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon & Holiday Rhinestone Gems in Night of Navy. The basic White panel is layered on Night of Navy card stock, then with dimensionals added to the Gray Granite card base. The sentiment on the front is Night of Navy ink and the Eden Garden stamp set.

Eden Hugs.2

For the inside, I stamped this distinctive bouquet in Night of Navy ink, AND the sentiment in the same ink ~ both using the Eden Garden stamp set. So this bouquet is a distinctive stamp, which means it has depth variation that creates what I’ll call multiple layers or depth to the stamp. That’s quite evident with this bouquet stamp as you can see the very dark to the light. I’ve kept this card in the muted tones, but it might be really pretty in Pale Papaya or even Polished Pink. Think I’ll have to try that… :}

Eden Hugs.3

For the envelope it’s just the same bouquet stamped in Night of Navy ink on the front. This produced a better bouquet in my opinion, less ink somehow. Let me remind you that with distinctive stamps it is better if your ink pad is not too inky. And that’s it for today. I hope you like this card. I didn’t at first but I really like that die cut and the ribbon/ bow adds a nice touch.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The theme this week is LEAVES – and interpret that however we like – so… here goes! Be sure to follow along to see all the wonderful projects.

No photo description available.
Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.1

My goodness, did I have fun with this card. See that stunning color on the inside of the rectangle? Love, love. And it was created with several colors… but I get ahead of myself just a bit. Begin with a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut and remove the center. With Blending Brushes create this gorgeousness: begin with Crushed Curry, then Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and finally Cherry Cobbler inks. Beginning with the lightest of colors and continuing to add each layer, this beauty was created. The next step was to use a Water Painter and flick water droplets, which takes some of the color away. I actually did this process twice so I could die cut leaves from the second piece. That second leaf above is cut from the additional creation. Before die cutting it though, I stamped it with Soft Suede ink using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set, stamped off once, then die cut with Intricate Leaves Dies. The top leaf is also die cut with one of the Intricate Leaves Dies – and from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty 6×6 paper. I then colored it with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and accented it with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I added a bit of Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to the stem and into a bit of the vein on this leaf. My next die cut was the tiny leaf from Gold Foil. I adhered these to the frame of the Very Vanilla with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using a sentiment from Forever Blossoms stamp set. I put dimensionals on the back of this Very Vanilla panel but did not attach it yet. First I placed the panel on the card base, then laid the gorgeous colored rectangle on the Very vanilla card front & adhered it with liquid glue. I then adhered the front panel so it was ‘square’ with the inner piece.

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.2

Here is another of the die cut leaves using the Intricate Leaves Dies, cut from the additional colored panel. Once I adhered the leaf with liquid glue, I flicked Soft Suede ink of the Very Vanilla panel, but not all over, just in places. I then stamped the sentiment (from Party Puffins stamp set) in Pumpkin Pie ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card – and bingo, the card was done!

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.3

For the envelope I stamped this fun leaf (I think it’s a maple leaf) from Gorgeous Leaves stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink and sponged daubed on the edges Cherry Cobbler ink. The front leaf is full strength. The leaves on the flap were 2nd & 3rd generation stamping. You can see the Blending Brushes used here in this photo – and the beautiful detail of the Intricate Leaves Die to create the top leaf.

For this card in particular, I kept wanting to add something, metallic adhesive-backed gems or linen thread or doodles along the right. But I stopped. The look is clean.

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Bundle

Oh golly – a new set fell on my desk today – what a shame… 🥴 It’s called Color & Contour and the coordinating dies are Scalloped Contour Dies. Oh I DID have fun and I see more of this set in my future. Here’s what I did.

Colors & Contours Bundle – #1

I’m not sure this is a very good photo, but you can see the card- and a hint of what I did on the inside. But let’s talk about the front first. I took a Basic White panel and stamped the outline of the flower in Fresh Freesia ink three times. I then stamped the filler for the flower using Fresh Freesia ink again, but stamping off once each time. One of the neat parts about the filler stamp… it has no direct ‘fit’ to the outline stamp, which makes it really easy! I colored the centers with Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends. I then randomly stamped the leaf image in Garden Green ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Color & Contour stamp set using Stazon ink on Fresh Freesia card stock and die cut it with Stitched Rectangles dies (carrying over!) I ran a bit of Seal + on the back of this stamped piece and wove the Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee back & forth. I added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. I decided I wanted to split this panel so cut it, leaving the right side panel larger. I adhered both panels to Fresh Freesia card stock with liquid glue. These two pieces I adhered to a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals – and the card front was done!

Colors & Contours Bundle – #2

For the inside of the card I used the largest of the dies in the Scalloped Contour Dies to die cut a basic White panel. I stamped the flower and leaf as before, coloring the center with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. This was adhered to a panel of Fresh Freesia card stock with liquid glue, then to the inside of the card. Done!

Colors & Contours Bundle – #3

For the envelope I followed the same procedure for the flower: used the outline stamp in Fresh Freesia ink, then the filler stamp with stamped off Fresh Freesia ink, and colored the flower center with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I covered the envelope flap with a panel of Hand-Penned DSP and stamped the open leaf design on that in Garden Green ink. Voila!!! This is such a bright, cheery card and I really like this new bundle.

And this is the bundle…

Aren’t those scalloped rectangles fun? and there is a die for the daisy like flower and the larger flower as well. Love the fonts, so perfect with the stamps. And the scalloped edge – oh yes!

Ok, I’ve rattled on enough… As you already know, most of today’s items will be available for customer purchase May 4. Hope you are making your list.

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch & Note cards

New, new, new… Pansy Patch. Isn’t that a wonderful name for a stamp bundle? And the coordinating Designer Series Paper is just as wonderful. Here’s the bundle…

Look at the detailo – oh wow… And I love the fonts! So let’s see what I created with this set.

I find it interesting as I look at these that the cards are both in the landscape position. The size is 3 1/2 x 5, just perfect for a little hand written note. For both cards I used the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP for a foundation. For card #1 I covered most of the front then laid a 1/2″ strip across. These bring in the colors of the pansies and make that Calypso Coral pop. From Basic White I die cut a fancy oval using the Petals Labels Dies (retiring May 3) and added it to the front with dimensionals. The pansies are die cut from one of the Designer papers in the package – and I love that availability. I used my Wink of Stella to give them some glam, attached the two yellow pansies with liquid glue and the Calypso Coral pansy with dimensionals. For the centers I added Matte Black Dots to two of them and a single Gold Glitter Enamel Dot ~ and I called it done. I rather like the big open space of the white oval. For the envelope I actually stamped the pansy! Here’s a close-up of that.

Pansy Patch – #3

There’s tiny bit of color on the lower portion of the envelope I will need to take my eraser to – sorry I didn’t notice that before! But isn’t that pansy sweet? I used Pale Papaya stamped off, then full strength for the edge detail, Calypso Coral for the brighter portion and a bit of Bumblebee for the center. And yes, I covered it too with Wink of Stella. I covered the envelope flap in the same 2020-2022 In Color DSP.

For card #2 you may notice the wonderful kind of pointy scallop under the DSP 🙂 That is from another new set called Basic Borders Dies. I die cut a panel from Basic White card stock for that and adhered it with liquid glue, then laid the 2020-2022 In color 6×6 DSP over that, adhering also with liquid glue. I die cut three pansies – 2 large and one smaller and coated them in Wink of Stella. I adhered the first pansy directly to the card, then another large one with dimensionals and adhered the smaller over that both with liquid glue and a dimensional. For these flower centers I added 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. Here’s a close-up and another picture of the card.

To finish the card front, I used the Double Oval Punch; Bumblerbee card stock for the scallop and Basic White for the sentiment panel. The sentiment comes from Pansy Patch and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink. These two ere adhered together with liquid glue then attached to the card front with dimensionals. A final touch was to add the bow with a bit of Gorgeous Grape Ribbon, adhered with a glue dot. For the envelope, I covered the flap in some gorgeous Pansy Patch DSP, die cut another large purple pansy and adhered that to the edge of the envelope front. Of course that got Wink of Stella as well.

Pansy Patch #6

These stunning cards need to be in a gift box, right? Right! The mini Paper Pumpkin boxes are the perfect size for the Notecards and Envelopes…

Pansy Patch #7

More use of this stunning Pansy Patch DSP adhered to a Soft Succulent (new In Color!) card stock ~ both adhered to the mini Paper Pumpkin with liquid glue. I die cut another of the fancy ovals using the Petals Labels Dies and Basic White card stock. I adhered that with dimensionals to the front of the box. I die cut another two pansies and added Wink of Stella, adhered with liquid glue and a dimensional or two. For the centers, 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and an extra (for the use of 3!) I then made three bows our of the NEW In Color Open Weave Ribbons and attached with glue dots. Finis! Love this set? I will create two more cards to share in tomorrows post. It can be yours for $23 + postage for a marvelous Mother’s Day gift. It will need to be mailed by Apr 30.

Pansy Patch #8

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells

WOOHOO! Are you reveling in the the retirement list? It IS pretty amazing, isn’t it? Just remember some items are retiring AS A BUNDLE and will be carried over into the new catalog… so look carefully at the list. Bundles, of course, are always 10% less expensive than when separated into two individual items. Just sayin’. At the end of today’s post I will again share the retirement list and connections to my online store.

Today’s project(s) are two cards using the Friends Are Like Seashells bundle and the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder which coordinates with this et. I’ve used other products as well and will list those as I give directions.

Here are the two cards.

These two are so different but generally use the same ingredients. Directions for each card follows.

Card #1

  • Card base is Pool Party card stock 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Next layer is Pretty Peacock embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder (4 x 5 1/4) and adhered with Seal +
  • The top layer is Pearlescent Paper that has been die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies, then a Blending Brush used to color the undersea leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink, then each shell stamped: Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, Gorgeous Grape and finally So Saffron ink. Allow to dry thoroughly then run through the Seashells 3D embossing folder. Oh what beautiful texture this gives! I put dimensionals all over trying to support even many of the broadest seaweed. Of course I had to trim some of the dimensionals into strips and I also used mini dimensionals too. Once I had the dimensionals where I wanted them I adhered it over the Pretty Peacock. This bold contrast really makes it pop.
  • I added three Opal Rounds.
  • On a 3/4″ strip of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue using the A Wish for everything stamp set.. I adhered this to a 7/8″ layer of Pretty Peacock with liquid glue and punched the end with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I wrapped Linen thread around the end of the banner a couple of times and tied a sweet bow. I added two more of the opal Rounds to the banner, attached dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card. Voila!

For the inside of this card I adhered a Pretty Peacock panel 4 x 5 1/4 with liquid glue. I stamped the shell in Petal Pink then the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink – on a Very Vanilla piece 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. The sentiment comes from the Forever Fern stamp set. This was adhered with liquid glue and the card was done.

For the envelope I took a strip of Pretty Peacock and ran it through the Seabed 3D embossing folder then adhered it to the envelope flap with liquid glue. I took a couple of the underwater seaweed stamps and stamped them on the front of the envelope, one in full strength Pear Pizzazz, the other in stamped-off Pear Pizzazz.

Love this card! And here’s a HELPFUL HINT… the ink takes a bit of time to dry on the Pearlescent Paper. Use that time to do the inside of the card, the banner, the envelope.

Card #2

  • I began this card by first creating the pearl Blushing Bride card stock for the seashells. I did that by using my Blending Brush and the Frost White Shimmer Paint. I used my Blending Brush working in small sections of the paper and brushed it on in circles, trying not to touch the paper, just the edges. Touching the paper while the shimmer paint is wet leaves fingerprints and you don’t want that. Set it aside to dry and work on the rest of the card. By the way ~ this is beautiful when dry!
  • The card base is Basic Gray card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. I embossed the front of the card with the Seabed Embossing Folder. It didn’t really show in the photo – not sure why…
  • I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Crumb Cake ink and the Friends are like Seashells stamp set. I die cut it with the Painted Labels Dies.
  • While I was waiting for the pearlizing to dry I went ahead and did the envelope… I ran the flap through the Seashells Embossing Folder. How to do this? With the flap in the folder, fold the envelope around the folder and put it through your machine. 🙂 For the front of the envelope I stamped a starfish in Crumb Cake ink and the envelope was done.
  • With the Blushing Bride pearlized paper dry I die cut the paper with the Seaside Shells Die. I then stamped the Nautilus shell with more Blushing Bride ink and the conch shell with Balmy Blue ink and set them aside to dry.
  • While that was drying I did the inside of the card… I stamped the sentiment from the Friends are like Seashells in Crumb Cake ink then the starfish, also in Crumb Cake ink – on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock 3 3/4 x 5. I adhered this to a panel of Blushing Bride 4 x 5 1/4 with liquid glue. These were adhered to the inside of the card, again with liquid glue.
  • Back to the stamped & die cut shells… I ran them through the Seashells 3 D Embossing and oh my, they almost look real. I love how they turned out. I put the dimensionals on the back and adhered them where I wanted.
  • I added a large Opal Rounds to the banner then put dimensionals on the right side and Stampin’ Seal on the left and put in place. I added two more Opal Rounds to the card front and voila – all done!

Yep – got over zealous and wrote on the card before taking the photo… ugh! And it’s hard to see the embossed envelope flap or the embossing on the card front, but I did do it. Guess I didn’t have my lights set properly 😦

These two cards didn’t take that long to do ~ and it’s fun creating something so different with the same supplies. This makes gorgeous cards! Love the font of the sentiments and the sentiments themselves are nice too. Here they are again – side by side.

If I can help you in any way to order these items, or others, please give me a holler.

    Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack

    This card pack – Dandy Garden Memories & More is a wonderful addition to making cards – or, if you are a scrapbooker, perfect for that as well. I am sharing two cards today that feature the laser-cut elements of this card pack. They are the focal point for these two cards. Obviously I have paired the laser-cut panels with other Stampin’ Up! products… 🙂 Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP forms the background papers for both cards. I have also included Brilliant Wings Dies, but a full listing will be at the end of this post. Let’s take a look at the cards.

    Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack – Card #1

    The background paper is is from the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and features a dotted Calypso Coral. I cut it slightly larger than the laser-cut panel then matted it on a panel of Basic White card stock – all done with liquid glue. I next added the ribbon by using Seal + and running it across the triple layers. I took a length of ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and created folds for extra dimension and charm. I then added three very sweet Ladybug Trinkets with glue dots. I put this on dimensionals and added it to the card base of Calypso Coral card stock.

    For the inside I simply added two stickers from the card pack: the strip which brings in the Calypso Coral and also a bee as though it is taking supplement from the flower. For the envelope I took another one of the card pack items and adhered it to the envelope flap, adhering with liquid glue. I also added one of the stickers that coordinates with the card front.

    Card #2 is very light & springy. I added the laser-cut panel to a piece of the Playing w/ Patterns 6×6 DSP. I then die cut an outline of the butterfly with another panel of the same DSP pack using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I then die cut the detail of the butterfly in Basic White card stock and layered them together with a bit of liquid glue just along the body, then adhered it directly to the card front with more liquid glue. I added three Metallic Pearls to the butterfly body – in silver. I wanted a ribbon and used one of the ribbons from the Playing w/ Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack – Purple Posy variegated. I used a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place. I stamped the sentiment from Field of Flowers stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink on a Basic White strip. I adhered that to the same DSP as is the backdrop of the butterfly and trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick a Punch. I put this on dimensionals and added it just beneath the ribbon. I added two more of the silver Metallic Pearls to this sentiment banner.

    Dandy Garden Memories &N More Card Pack – card #2

    For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Gorgeous Grape ink, then added more of the same DSP as on the front of the card with liquid glue.

    For the envelope I stamped the grassy portion in Granny Apple Green ink from the same Field of Flowers stamp set. I then added the flowers in Gorgeous Grape ink. The envelope flap got more of the same Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP.

    I love this kind of card to have on hand. They can so easily be a sympathy card or birthday card or just a simple note. Hope you like!
