Hi! Happy Hump Day!
Today I have a card I made using the Splendid Day suite in the July-December Mini Catalog. I love how it turned out. Stampin’ Up! offered a virtual crafting day featuring this suite and this card was inspired from that. I made a few minor tweaks – but not many.
The background for the card is created using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. After running it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine, use a Blending Brush and White Craft ink to rub ink in some spots.
Before die cutting the Basic White leaves, attach a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back – this will make it so much easier to attach to the Calypso Coral cardstock.
Stamp the leaves and flowers in Jet Black StaZon ink on Soft Seafoam and Petal Pink cardstock respectively. Die cut with coordinating dies. Use the half-circle die from the set to die cut a piece of the Designer Series Paper – pick your favorite pattern.
Stamp the sentiment in Jet Black StaZon on a scrap of Basic White and punch with the Double Oval punch.
The base is a piece of Basic White Thick cardstock, cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded.
Wrap a piece of Soft Seafoam Seam Binding ribbon around the Calypso Coral piece and tie a knot.
Attach the Calypso Coral embossed piece to the base.
Arrange the die cut pieces and attach using Seal or dimensionals.
Attach the half circle near the middle and offset the sentiment to the left.
A simple, but elegant card to brighten someone’s day!
