So in Love Affectionate Flowers
Q uick and easy card using some retiring Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Calypso Coral Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" of multi-colored flowers and leaves on navy background design from Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper
- 2" x 5" from Mint Macaron Card Stock
- 3" square of Whisper White Card Stock
- 2" square of Calypso Coral Card Stock
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Slide the Mint Macaron strip into the punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Pick out the Floral Affection Embossing Folder that embosses the two floral brackets. Place the notched end of the Mint Macaron strip into the Floral Affection Embossing Folder so the bottom floral bracket is centered just above the notch in the card stock. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the stitched circle framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits that cuts out a 2-3/8" circle. Place the framelit on top of your white square of card stock so you get an idea where to stamp.
Mount one of the shorter sentiments from the So in Love Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the upper right corner of the circle area.
Mount the set of 4 little flowers image on Block A. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad and stamp it above and below the sentiment as shown. Remember to reink the stamp the second time.
Place the stamped white card stock on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the stitched circle framelit on top so the words and flowers are in the upper right. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the circle image to the Mint Macaron strip so it is just above the embossed flower bracket on the bottom and covers the top flower bracket.
Cut at 2-3/4" piece of Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine.
Lay the twine piece across the top of the Mint Macaron strip just above the circle. Flip the strip over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape strips. Add more SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the mint strip. Adhere the strip to the center of the rectangle of Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Paper so the end of the mint strip is level with the top of the designer paper. Trim off excess if needed.
Adhere the designer paper to the front of the Calypso Coral card.
Mount the large flower image from the So in Love Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp in the center of the Calypso Coral square.
Cut the flower out by hand using Paper Snips.
Adhere the flower to the bottom left of the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Cut an 8" piece of Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine. Tie it in a small bow. Trim the ends.
Adhere the bow to the right side of the twine on the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.
