T his layout has been very inspiring. I was inspired by Kelly Acheson and she was inspired by a card Rhonda Wade sent her.
Card Base is 11” X 4.25” scored at 5.5, heavy very vanilla card stock
Gold Foil - 4.75” X 3.75”
Very Vanilla card stock - 4.5” X 3.5” (this is the layer you will stamp on.
Designer Series Paper - I cut my DSP to 4” X 6”, plus a strip 1/2 “ X 4 1/4”
4” X 6” DSP - first glue the DSP to the envelope flap. This leaves a strip 1 7/8” X 6”.
Adhere the 1 7/8” strip to the front, at the bottom, of your cardbase.
Time to Stamp:
Stamp sentiment “Thanks” to the bottom of the white focal layer using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Stamp the large flower arrangement from Ornate Garden on this white piece.
Stamp sentiment on the inside, “from the bottom of my heart”.
Adhere the 1/2” strip onto the inside.
Adhere the stamped focal piece to the gold foil sheet. Adhere to the card front with dimensionals.
Highlight flowers with Wink of Stella or, what I did, was spray with Champagne Shimmer Mist mixed with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol using your Stampin’ Spritzer
Add a bow made with the Terrracotta Tile Ribbon
