P retty, monochromatic thinking of you/sympathy card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and vellum pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Basic Gray Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" of blocks of white cursive text design from Vellum 12" x 12" Layering Designs
- 3-1/2" x 4" from Basic White Cardstock
- 2" x 3-1/2" from Basic White Cardstock
Mount the large peony flower and bud on stem with leaves image from the Prized Peony Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Basic Gray Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the large, vertical white rectangle.
Pick out the scalloped, stitched rectangle die that cuts out a rectangle that is 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Put it on top of the stamped peony rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the right edge of the peony bloom and bud are on the right edge of the rectangle. Run through the machine.
Gently squeeze the Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush to get some glittery ink on the brush tip. Lightly paint the petals of the peony flower with the Glitter Brush.
Mount the "my thoughts are with you" sentiment from the Prized Peony Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Basic Gray Ink Pad. Stamp it on one end of the horizontal white strip in the center. Leave room to punch it out.
Unlock the Label Me Fancy Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked. Keep all the pieces.
Slide the leftover end of the white strip into the unlocked punch so you will punch out the slit. Now, slide the leftover end of the white strip with the slit punched in it into the unlocked punch so you will punch out a rounded end. Get the slit centered in the rounded end fairly close to the edge. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked.
Lay the punched out bit on the BACK of the sentiment punch out lining up the rounded edges on one side. Use a pen, pencil, or marker to draw inside the slit area. Repeat with the other rounded edge.
Slide the marked sentiment punch out into the unlocked punch and get the marked area centered inside the slit punch. Punch. Repeat with the other end.
Cut a 3-1/4" piece of the 1-1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon.
Fold the ribbon in half lengthwise. Thread the sentiment label punch out onto the folded ribbon and get it positioned on the ribbon in the center.
Put a small strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the center of the back of the sentiment punch out and ribbon.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape and adhere the sentiment punch out to the center of the bottom of the peony rectangle cut out so the bottom of the punch out just overhangs the bottom of the rectangle cut out a tiny bit. Make sure the ends of the ribbon are sticking out on both sides.
Fold the ends of the ribbon over and secure the ribbon in place on the back of the rectangle cut out with strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Use Paper Snips Scissors to cut a Basic Gray doily from the Heart & Home Doilies in half.
Adhere half of the doily to the back of the peony rectangle cut out with sentiment punch out and ribbon attached so it sticks out on the right edge as shown.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape pieces and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the rectangle cut out and doily half.
Adhere the rectangle cut out and doily half to the vertical vellum rectangle so the top is about 1/2" from the top and the left edge is about 1/4" from the left edge.
Put Stampin' Seal on the back of the vellum where it is hidden by the rectangle cut out and half doily. Adhere to the front of the Basic Gray card.
