So Very Much Mint Succulent Thanks
A nother thank you card I created for the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour - Succulent Garden Suite using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Mint Macaron Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 3-3/4" x 5" of light green succulents on white background design of paper from Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/4" square from Mint Macaron Card Stock
- scrap of Whisper White Card Stock at least 3/8" x 3"
Rub the Embossing Buddy over the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.
Mount the large thank you sentiment from the So Very Much Stamp Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Whisper White Craft Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the designer paper.
Sprinkle on White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Tap off excess. If necessary, use a small paint brush to brush off excess embossing powder. Return the excess powder to the container.
Heat the embossing powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely melted and shiny.
Clean the thank you stamp using the Stampin' Mist and Stampin' Scrub. Leave the stamp on the block.
Ink up the thank you sentiment stamp again using the Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Follow the instructions for using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamp the sentiment on the plastic positioning sheet. Use the image stamped on the positioning sheet and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to determine where to stamp the image again onto the designer paper so it is slightly offset from the embossed image (like a shadow). Ink up the stamp again with Mint Macaron Ink and stamp it on the designer paper using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
Adhere the stamped and embossed designer paper to the large white rectangle. Then, adhere to the front of the Mint Macaron card.
Mount small sentiment of choice from the So Very Much Stamp Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white strip.
Punch out the sentiment with the Classic Label Punch so the sentiment is to the right side of the punch out.
Adhere the sentiment punch out to the card front so the bottom is about 1/2" up from the bottom of the designer paper and the right edge is about 1/4" in from the right edge of the designer paper.
Mount the large, outline flower image from the So in Love Stamp Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Mint Macaron square.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the flower cutting off the outer layer of petals so you have a smaller flower.
Add highlights to the ends of the petals using the Chalk Marker. The marker shows up better as it dries.
Adhere the cut out flower to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals so the flower overlaps the left side of the sentiment punch out and the bottom of the "y" a bit.
