Stampin’ Up Very Versailles CAS Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!! I hope you have something fun planned for today.  Maybe a picnic or 2 or just going to watch fireworks tonight.  Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

For today I have a really clean and simple card for you.   I used just Stamps, Ink and Paper, the basics of card making.  Here’s my card.

The colors for my card were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #328.  Here is their color scheme.

I started with a Whisper White card front and stamped the script image from the Stampn’ Up Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink on the top and bottom of opposite sides.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the opposite sides on the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel.

I then tore the edges all around the stamped panel and sponged them, using my Stamping Sponge, in Crumb Cake Ink to give my card an antique look.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink over the leaves and script images.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on both sides of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set in the center of the panel.  I tore the edges of the Whisper White panel and sponged them the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scripty image from the Very Versailles stamp set on the front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Petal Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Very Versailles stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the script image on the front and back of the envelope.  I sponged all around the envelope front and the envelope flap using my Stamping Sponge in Crumb Cake Ink.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. This is a great card for a beginner with just a tiny technique added in.

Happy Stamping!!
