S ummery card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Lost Lagoon Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Smoky Slate Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 4" from Petal Pink Cardstock
- 2-3/8" x 4" of white dots on Lost Lagoon background design from Subtles 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 2" x 6" from Basic White Cardstock
- 1" x 3" from Petal Pink Cardstock
Insert the Smoky Slate rectangle into the splatters embossing folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folders set so you'll dry emboss one side of the horizontal rectangle. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on the platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Make sure none of the cardstock or embossing folder hangs over the edges of the platform. Run through the machine. Repeat on the other side of the horizontal rectangle. Don't worry if there is a gap near one side or the other of the horizontal rectangle as you can cover that in the next steps.
Adhere the piece of Subtles Designer Paper to the center of the large Petal Pink strip. The top and bottom edges will be even and a small amount of Petal Pink should show along the left and right edges.
Cut a 4-3/4" piece of the Petal Pink ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack.
Lay the ribbon across the vertical layered cardstock/designer paper rectangle so it is about 1/4" from the left edge. Fold the ends of the ribbon over and secure the ribbon in place on the back with strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape pieces and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Petal Pink rectangle. Adhere the rectangle to the dry embossed, horizontal Smoky Slate rectangle so it is about 1/2" from the left edge. Make sure you cover any gaps that may exist in the dry embossing on the Smoky Slate rectangle.
Adhere the dry embossed Smoky Slate rectangle with matted designer paper and ribbon attached to the front of the Lost Lagoon card.
Mount the "you are a pearl, rare and precious" sentiment from the Seaside Bay Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Lost Lagoon Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of one end of the horizontal white strip leaving room to cut it out.
Pick out the 1-1/16" and 1-1/2" square dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Put the 1-1/2" square die on top of the stamped sentiment on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered in the die. Put the 1-1/16" square die near it, but make sure the dies do NOT overlap. Run through the machine. Keep all the pieces. Leave the 1-1/16" square die out.
Put the 1-1/16" square die back on top of the white strip on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine. Keep all the pieces.
Mount the pearl image from the Seaside Bay Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Petal Pink Ink Pad. Stamp it on the remainder of the white strip leaving room to cut it out.
Pick out the matching, small circle die from the Seaside Bay Dies. Put it on top of the stamped pearl image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the image. Run through the machine.
Place the two small square cut outs on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Mount the sand speckles image from the Seaside Bay Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Smoky Slate Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly all over the two square cut outs. Let some of the images overlap. Let some of the images go off the edges. Remember to re-ink the stamp every so often.
WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the stamped small square cut outs and the stamped sentiment square cut out on the card front so they are evenly spaced down the right side of the designer paper as shown to figure out spacing and placement. When happy with the arrangement, adhere the pieces in place one at a time.
Use the Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add some shimmer to the pearl cut out.
Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the shimmery pearl cut out to the front of the card as shown so it overlaps the lower right corner of the sentiment square cut out.
Pick out both of the small scallop shell dies from the Seaside Bay Dies. Put them on top of the small Petal Pink strip on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Make sure the dies do NOT overlap. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces as needed.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the small scallop shell cut outs to the front of the card as shown so they overlap the edges of the small splattered square cut outs.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Petal Pink ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack.
Slide one end of the ribbon under the ribbon already on the card front and tie in place with a half knot near the top of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
