Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday we will all be going to the racetrack to watch my husband drive the Farrari around the track. He’s excited and I am too. I can’t wait to see his reactions after going on the high-speed ride with the pro. I bought him the whole package with the video and pictures of him driving.
Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set and the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.
I joined in with Creativ Creases Challenge #39 this week.
I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 sets of the flower dies from the Chic Dies, one from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and one from a panel of Distressed Gold Paper. I pieced the Petal Pink flower pieces into the Distressed Gold outline holding them together using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the small leaf die of the Chic Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the flowers to the card front. I adhered the leaves under the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I adhered the other 2 panels of the Texture Chic DSP to the 2 front panels of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Designer Tags Dies. I wanted the tag a little shorter, so I cut partway through from the top, I moved the die up lining up the stitches and cut the bottom half of the tag. I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent 1/2″ Satin Shimmer Ribbon to the back of the card base using Tear & Tape. Using a small piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, I threaded it through the tag and tied it onto the ribbon tying a knot. I wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the tag.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping the outline in full strength ink and the fill image stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front, stamping the outline in full strength ink and the fill image stamped off once. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the envelope flap.
