Who doesn’t love a simple congrats card? Okay – this doesn’t look simple but that’s only because the specialty paper used on the flowers makes it so fancy. A simple cut of patterned paper and some background stamping adds to the fancy.
To make this card, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Basic White (Thick for card base – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ on the long side; scrap for sentiment
- Blushing Bride card stock (scrap for behind sentiment)
- Pattern Party Host DSP (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ – cut on any angle you wish)
- Gold & Rose Gold Specialty Paper (I used about 3″ x 6″ in both Gold and Rose Gold)
- Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pad
- Basic Supplies (Trimmer, Snips, Glue, Dimensionals, Clear Blocks)
- Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
- …and the In Bloom Bundle (stamp set/die)
To make this card, follow these steps:
- Cut your DSP on any angle you want – I placed my piece in my trimmer, eye-balled it, and cut away
- Place the DSP on your card base to get an idea of where you need to background stamp. I used one of the smaller images from the set with Blushing Bride ink – I stamped once full-strength and then stamped off.
- Once you’ve stamped the background as you desire, adhere the DSP with liquid glue.
- Cut out an assortment of flowers and stems using the dies, the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I plotted out where I’d want the flowers and stems and then glued them down (I did the stems first then the flowers)
- Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White and cut out using the ‘label’ die from the set. Cut out the same shape of a piece of Blushing Bride; cut this piece in half and trim off. Adhere to the back of the white piece with glue. Affix the sentiment to the card front using Dimensionals.
