A great feminine card with a Stamp Set I see as primarily masculine. I made this for my Boss when she had a recent promotion.
*1 piece of 8-1/2 x 11 Sahara Sand Cardstock scored on the 8-1/2 in side at 4-1/4 then cut on the 11 in side at 5-1/2 in---you will then have 2 card bases.
*2 pieces of Night of Navy Cardstock cut at 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
*1 piece of In Good Taste DSP (the pink one) cut at 4 x 5-1/4
*1 piece of Very Vanilla cut 4 x 5-1/4
add another scrap piece of Very Vanilla for the feather
*1 scrap piece of Very Vanilla to stamp and die cut the feather.
*1 scrap piece of Sahara Sand and Petal Pink to die cut the frames for the sentiments---using Tasteful Label Dies
*Cut a 5-5-1/2 in piece of your ribbon and set aside.
*Stamp your "congratulations" sentiment using the Peaceful Moment Stamp set on the Petal Pink scrap with Night of Navy Ink and cut out with the Tasteful Label die
*On the Very Vanilla piece---stamp the leaf bunch to the upper left corner using Sahara Sand and the sentiment using Night of Navy Ink.
*On the scrap Very Vanilla, stamp the feather from Tasteful Touches Stamp Set using Sahara Sand. With your paper snips---gently fussy cut the feather.
Now we are going to assemble:
*Using your multipurpose glue adhere the Very Vanilla piece to one of the Night of Navy Layers.
Then adhere to the inside of the card.
*adhere the DSP to the other Night of Navy Cardstock.
*Secure the ribbon--on the top of the card to the back---use glue dots or snail.
*make a bow and secure to the wrapped ribbon with a glue dot.
*Adhere your stamped Petal Pink sentiment piece with dimensionals to the Sahara Sand Piece---and secure with dimentionals to the lower half of the card front.
*Add a few of the Tasteful elements gently tucked behind the layers sentiment pieces--you can use a glue dot or liquid glue.
*Add the cut feather piece.
*Add a bit of glimmer to the feather and the leaf bunch on the inside with Wink of Stella.
