P retty thinking of you card made with products from Stampin' Up! that can be earned for FREE during Sale-A-Bration 2018.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- 2" x 3-1/2" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 2-1/2" square from Whisper White Cardstock
Pick out one of the Berry Burst cards from the Mixed Medallion Card Kit. Fold on all score lines. Make sure the Sahara Sand inside flap will fold down when opened.
Mount the "Thinking of You" sentiment from the Heartfelt Blooms Set on Block B. Stamp it in the center of the strip of white cardstock.
Unlock the Tailored Tag Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped white scrap into the punch and get the sentiment centered in the punching area. Punch.
Rub a Sponge Dauber across the open Calypso Coral Ink Pad to get it inky. Add color to the edges of the punched sentiment by rubbing the inky Sponge Dauber along the edges. Get more ink on the dauber as needed.
Tip: I just clean my Sponge Daubers when I'm done using them by running them under water until no more color is coming off. Then, I let them air dry. They may be stained, but they are clean enough to use with any color of ink in the future.
Cut 2 pieces of the Calypso Coral 3/8" Ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack so that each piece is 1-1/2" long.
Fold one piece of ribbon in half horizontally so the fold is at the bottom. Use Paper Snips to cut at a sharp downward angle towards the fold on one end. Unfold the ribbon. You should have a notch in the end of the ribbon. Repeat with the other piece of ribbon.
Put a small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back of the sentiment punch out so it is horizontal near one of the small ends. Put another small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the other end.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape Adhesive strips and adhere the ribbon pieces to them so the notched ends of the ribbons stick out on either side of the punched sentiment by about 1/4".
Fold the Berry Burst flaps of the card closed. Put a small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the knob sticking out of the left side flap. Remove the protective backing and adhere the sentiment punch out with ribbons attached to the center of the medallion formed when the flaps are closed.
Mount the large flower bouquet image from the Heartfelt Blooms Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Calypso Coral Ink Pad. Place the stamp inky side up on your work surface. Place the square of white cardstock on top of the inky stamp so it covers the large flower in the image. Fold the edge of your Grid Paper over on top of the inky stamp and rub. Unfold the Grid Paper and remove the square of white. Leave the stamp on the block.
Use Paper Snips to carefully cut out the large flower image.
Use the side of the brush tip of the Calypso Coral Marker to outline the edges of the cut out flower. This will help to hide any white edges.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the cut out flower to the card front so it overlaps the lower left side of the sentiment punch out on the left flap of the card front.
Tip: Be careful not to let any adhesive show through the cut outs on the card front or the card front flap might stick to the inside flap of the card.
Carefully peel up a large circle from a sheet of Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it over the dew drop on the flower image.
Place the envelope front side up on Grid Paper.
Re-ink the large flower bouquet image with the Calypso Coral Ink Pad. Stamp in the lower left corner of the envelope so that the image goes off the left and bottom edges.
