F eaturing the Love What You Do and Around the Corner Stamp Sets
With your paper trimmer, cut an 8-1/2" x 11 piece of Calypso Coral card-stock in half at 5-1/2". Score and fold one of the 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" pieces in half at 4-1/4" for your card base.
Cut a piece of Whisper White card-stock at 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" to stamp the larger floral image on it. Also cut a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White card-stock for the inside of your card.
Cut another piece of Basic Black at 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" to layer beneath the Whisper White.
Attach the small floral stamp from the Love What You Do stamp set to an acrylic block A and stamp if all around the front of your Calypso Coral card base. No need to stamp the middle. It will be covered by the main image.
Next, either using the Stamparatus or Acrylic Block D, attach the larger floral stamp and begin stamping the image in the center of the 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" Whisper White using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp 2 more floral images, one to the left and one to the right side of your first stamped image. Now in Pear Pizzazz stamp the small leaf around the floral stems (as pictured). I chose to stamp the sentiment "You Matter" from Around the Corner stamp set using the Stamparatus, on the bottom left side of the top layer, so that I could get a crisp dark image. If you don't have a Stamparatus, using an acrylic block is also fine, just make sure your ink pad is juicy to get the best impression when you stamp.
At this point, take your 1/2" circle punch and punch out all the corner edges of the Whisper White and Basic Black card-stock. Attach the Whisper White card-stock with adhesive to the Basic Black card-stock. Now attach the Basic Black card-stock to the base card with dimensionals (or glue) and the front of the card is now done.
Attach the 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White card-stock to the inside of the card with adhesive. Optional, but looks nice: stamp the inside of the card with the small flowers.
