L ovely card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock, designer paper, and Glimmer Paper pieces to the following sizes using a cutting and scoring tool:
- card from Whisper White Thick Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3-3/8" x 4-5/8" from Pacific Point Cardstock
- 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" of the mottled blue background design from See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper
- 1-1/2" x 4" from Sparkle Glimmer Paper
Use the place markers for the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to mark the 1-7/8", 2-1/8", and 2-3/8" lines.
Place the open thick white card on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool so the front of the card is in the upper left corner. Use the stylus to score across the center of the card front at each of the marked lines.
Use the corner rounder side of the Detailed Trio Punch to corner round all four corners of the Pacific Point and designer paper rectangles. Make sure the edges of the cardstock/paper are against the guides of the punch and the corner is all the way in the punch. Punch only one sheet of cardstock or designer paper at a time. Press down on the center of the punch firmly.
Pick out the dandelion die from the Sweet Sihouettes Dies. Put the die on top of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper rectangle on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool. Make sure the glimmer side of the glimmer sheet is face up. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and/or paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Rub the Embossing Buddy all over the designer paper.
WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the dandelion cut out on the designer paper at an angle with the stem going off the bottom left corner and the flower near the center top.
Mount the set of 5 dandelion seeds image from the Dandelion Wishes Set on Block B. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it just to the right of the dandelion flower top.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Silhouette Scenes or Dandelion Wishes Sets on an appropriately sized block. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the designer paper.
Lay the stamped designer paper piece on top of some Grid Paper in the center. Sprinkle on some Shimmer White Stampin' Emboss Powder so it covers the stamped sentiment and stamped dandelion seeds. Tap off excess powder. Return the excess powder to the container to use again later.
Heat the powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely melted (shiny and more opaque white).
Tip: Use a clothespin to hold the designer paper while using the Heat Tool to avoid burning your fingers.
Use SNAIL in the center of the dandelion flower or a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the dandelion cut out in place on the heat embossed designer paper. Trim off excess stem.
Adhere the designer paper to the Pacific Point rectangle and then to the center of the Whisper White Thick card front.
Cut a 3-1/2” piece of Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the card front on top of the stem near the bottom left corner of the main image panel.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick tool to pick up a small Clear Faceted Gem being sure to get adhesive as well. Adhere to the dandelion flower center.
