Art Gallery Best Wishes Bouquet
P retty card perfect for lots of occasions using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Pale Papaya Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" of sprays of pale peach and purple flowers with green leaves on white background design from Heart & Home Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/2" x 3" from Basic White Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Garden Green Cardstock
- 2-1/4" square from Pale Papaya Cardstock
- 2" square from Basic White Cardstock
- 1" x 2" from Pale Papaya Cardstock
Adhere the piece of Heart & Home Designer Paper to the front of the Pale Papaya card.
Adhere the Pale Papaya square to the center of the Garden Green square at an angle.
Adhere the layered squares to the front of the card so the points of the green square are straight up and down and side to side and it is centered near the top of the card.
Place the 2" white square on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. Use the brush tips of the Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Marker to create a square of color in the center of the white square.
Adhere the colored white square to the center of the layered Pale Papaya and Garden Green squares on the card front so the white square is offset from the others but is straight.
As you are ready to stamp using the Art Gallery Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the floral bouquet image from the Art Gallery Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Pale Papaya Ink Pad. WITHOUT STAMPING, use the brush tip of the Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker (regular marker) to color over the stems and leaves turning them green. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp it in the center of the white rectangle.
Pick out the matching floral bouquet die from the Floral Gallery Dies. Put it on top of the stamped bouquet image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the image is centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the floral bouquet cut out to the card front at a slight angle so the bottom of the stem is near the bottom point of the Garden Green diamond on the right side as shown.
Mount the short sentiment of choice from the Art Gallery Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Garden Green Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the skinny Pale Papaya strip.
Pick out the short, wavy-edge banner die from the Floral Gallery Dies. Put it on top of the stamped sentiment on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the upper left side of the floral bouquet and the upper left side of the layered squares as shown.
Cut a 5" piece of the White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the card front at the bottom of the green diamond so it covers the end of the stem cut out as shown.
