Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You cling stamp set to make a simple, elegant thinking of you card for today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using:
I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with liquid glue.
I cut a panel of Brushed Gold metallic foil with the Stitched Rectangle die. I used the Stitched Greenery die on another Mossy Meadow panel to get the die cut leafy texture on the center panel. I cut it down to 2-13/16″ x 4-3/16″ making sure I had a 5-1/4″ strip for the inside trim and adhered it to the Brushed Gold panel with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the long label from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and cut the small leaf from cork paper using the stitched leaves dies. I adhered the leaf with a glue dot, tucking it under the label. I finished the card front with Gold Metallic dots and a Linen Thread bow.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the branch from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set in Bumblebee on a Basic White panel. I stamped part of the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow next to the branch. I cut down the remaining die cut leafy Mossy Meadow panel to 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered it to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
Don’t you think the embossed background goes really well with the die cut panel? And I love the sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set. I think this design would also make a wonderful masculine birthday card with the appropriate sentiments.
