Bottled Happiness Message Bouquet
P retty card good for lots of occasions using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Bermuda Bay Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Crushed Curry Cardstock
- 2-7/8" x 4-1/2" from Bermuda Bay Cardstock
- 2-3/4" x 4-3/8" from Basic White Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Granny Apple Green Cardstock
Insert the Crushed Curry rectangle into the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Use the line printed on the front flap of the folder to make sure it is lined up straight. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on the platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the dry embossed Crushed Curry rectangle to the front of the Bermuda Bay card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Bottled Happiness 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 large, more solid glass bottle image from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Bermuda Bay Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vertical white rectangle as close to the bottom edge as possible.
Mount the large, bouquet with more solid flowers image from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Crushed Curry Ink Pad. Rotate the block so the stamp is oriented the way it is shown on the front of the stamp case. Stamp it just above the top of the previously stamped bottle so the large flower in the center bottom almost touches the top of the bottle.
Mount the large, bouquet with more leaves and flower centers image from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Granny Apple Green Ink Pad. Rotate the block so the stamp is oriented the way it is shown on the front of the stamp case. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped flowers so you fill in the leaves, stems, and flower centers.
Place the stamped bottle bouquet image on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. Use the fine tip of the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends Marker to fill in the centers of the large flowers.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the center of the Bermuda Bay rectangle.
Cut two 3-1/2" pieces of the Just Jade 3/8" Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
Lay both pieces of ribbon on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. Use the brush tip of the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends marker to color both ribbon pieces.
Lay one of the pieces of colored ribbon across the bottom of the matted bouquet rectangle about 1/2" from the bottom. Fold the ends of the ribbon over and secure the ribbon in place on the back of the rectangle using strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape pieces and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Bermuda Bay rectangle. Adhere to the front of the card on the left side so it is about 3/8" from the left edge and centered top to bottom.
Mount the smaller sentiment of your choice from the Bottled Happiness Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Bermuda Bay Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Granny Apple Green square.
Pick out the smallest label die from the Stitched So Sweetly 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 Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment label cut out to the front of the card as shown.
Pick out a Bumblebee Trinket. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the trinket to the front of the card in the upper right corner.
Slide one end of the remaining colored ibbon under the ribbon already on the card front and tie in place with a half knot so it is centered between the edge of the stamped rectangle and the sentiment label cut out. Trim the ends.
