P retty card to celebrate friendship using new Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer series paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Tranquil Tide Cardstock
- 2-1/4" x 4" of curvy vanilla lattice on dark green background design from Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, cut so the lattice runs vertically
- scrap of Tranquil Tide Cardstock at least 1-3/4" wide
- scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock at least 2" wide
Pick out the "friend" thinlit from the Lovely Words Thinlits. Place the large Tranquil Tide rectangle on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the "friend" thinlit on top so it is about 1/2" from the top and both sides. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Adhere the piece of Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the die cut Tranquil Tide rectangle.
Pick out a large gold doily from the Metallic Foil Doilies. Cut it in half.
Adhere one half doily to the card front so it is centered side to side and the cut top of the doily is in line with the top of the designer paper. Save the other half of the doily for another project.
Cut a 5" piece of the Tranquil Tide 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon piece across the card front so it hides the seam between the designer paper/doily and the cardstock. Flip the card front over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the card front. Adhere the card front to the front of the Very Vanilla Thick card.
Mount one of the small sentiments from the Lovely Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Tranquil Tide Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
Mount the set of two straighter brackets image on Block B. Ink it up with the Tranquil Tide Ink Pad. Stamp it over the sentiment so the brackets are above and below the sentiment with the sentiment centered in between. Leave the stamp on the block.
Reink the stamp and rotate the block 90 degrees. Stamp the image again so the brackets are on either side of the sentiment with the sentiment centered in between. The ends of the brackets should almost touch the ends of the previously stamped brackets.
Unlock the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment cardstock into the punch and center the sentiment/brackets in the punching area. Punch.
Unlock the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. Slide in the scrap of Tranquil Tide and punch.
Adhere the sentiment circle to the Tranquil Tide circle.
Adhere the circles to the center of the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the circles are centered over the ribbon.
Cut a 4" piece of Tranquil Tide 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon.
Pick out one of the gold tassels from the Mini Tassels Assortment. Slide one end of the ribbon into the ring at the top of the tassel. Tie it in place using a half knot. Trim the ends of the ribbon.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon/tassel to the card front on the lower right side of the sentiment circles.
