F un card perfect for lots of occasions using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and vellum pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Granny Apple Green Cardstock at 7" x 8-1/2" and scored at 3-1/2"
- 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" from Basic Black Cardstock
- 2-1/8" x 8-1/4" from Pool Party Cardstock
- 1-1/4" x 8-1/4" of black map pattern from Vellum 12" x 12" Layering Designs
- 1-3/4" x 8" from Basic White Cardstock
Put a thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen along the back of one long edge of the vellum strip. Adhere the vellum strip to the bottom of the horizontal Pool Party strip. When finished, you should have a Pool Party/vellum piece that is 3-1/4" wide.
Pick out the chevrons die from the Slim Card Dies. Put it on top of the Basic Black rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
Tip: You are using the rectangle with chevrons cut into it for this project. Save the cut out chevron pieces to use on another project.
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the rectangle with chevrons cut into it to the front of the Pool Party/vellum rectangle so all the edges line up.
Cut a 9" piece of the Real Red 3/8" Faux Linen Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the layered chevron/cardstock/vellum rectangle so it covers the seam between the Pool Party Cardstock and vellum. Flip the rectangle over and secure the ends of the ribbon in place with small strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Tip: If desired, put a horizontal strip of Tear & Tape across the layered rectangle in the center over the seam between the Pool Party Cardstock and vellum. Before laying the ribbon across, remove the protective backing. This will help keep the ribbon laying flat on the card front.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape and add more adhesive to the back of the rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Granny Apple Green slimline card.

Mount the van image from the Driving By Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the horizontal white strip.
Mount the "driving by just to say hi" sentiment from the Driving By Set on Block B.

Stamp the sentiment on the right end of the horizontal white strip leaving room to punch it out.
Use the fine tip of the Granny Apple Green Stampin' Write Marker (regular marker) to add three little dots to the end of the "just to say" sentiment.
Unlock the Cloud Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch.
