Incredible Like You Gingham Friends
P retty card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Calypso Coral Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 3 pieces each 7/8" x 3-3/4" of Grapefruit Grove gingham pattern from Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 2 pieces each 7/8" x 3-3/4" of Daffodil Delight gingham pattern from Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/4" square from Daffodil Delight Cardstock
- 2-3/4" square from Whisper White Cardstock
- scrap of Whisper White Cardstock at least 2" wide
WITHOUT adhering, lay the pieces of Gingham Gala Designer Paper on the large white rectangle to figure out the spacing. If desired, turn the center strip of Grapefruit Grove paper over so the larger check pattern is showing. Once happy with the layout, adhere the pieces in place one at a time.
Cut a 6" piece of the Daffodil Delight ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
Lay the ribbon horizontally across the center of the white/designer paper strips rectangle. Flip the rectangle over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add SNAIL to the back of the white rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Calypso Coral card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Incredible Like You 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 "so glad we are friends," "I just adore you," or "incredibly proud of you" sentiment from the Incredible Like You Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Calypso Coral Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square.
Pick out the stitched square framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits that cuts out a 2-1/8" square. Place the stamped sentiment on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the stitched square framelit on top so it is centered over the sentiment with the sentiment a little closer to the top edge. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the sentiment square cut out to the center of the Daffodil Delight square.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the matted sentiment square to the front of the card in the center.
Mount the solid, large flower image from the Incredible Like You Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Daffodil Delight Ink Pad. Stamp it onto the strip of white cardstock.
Mount the detailed, large flower image from the Incredible Like You Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Calypso Coral Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped solid flower image.
Use Paper Snips to cut the flower out by hand.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the cut out flower to the front of the card so it overlaps the lower right corner of the sentiment square at a slight angle.
Cut an 8" piece of Daffodil Delight Ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack.
Tie a small bow in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the ribbon already on the card front on the left side of the sentiment square.
