Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Grateful Card

Good Morning! Today I want to share a fun card made with lots of different dies but features one of the pretty sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You bundle. This stamp set has so many different sentiments, but the fonts are perfect for the light hearted, fun nature of the card design. You can find the list of supplies supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the two funky birds from the Birds & More dies from red Felt from the Festive Felt pack. I ran it through the die cutting machine about 4 times to get a good cut, but there were still a few places where I had to trim some felt with my snips. These dies are pretty detailed, and my cutting plate is pretty well used, but I was still pretty happy to be able to get crisp die cuts from the felt!! Yay!

I cut the branch from the Birds & More dies and Just Jade card stock. I cut the bird house from the Home Together dies and Crumb Cake card stock. Then I punched the flowers from Bumblebee card stock with the Confetti Flowers border punch and added pearls to the largest three flowers. I adhered these to the branch with liquid glue. Then I assembled my card base by adhering a panel of Balmy Blue Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Whisper White card base with liquid glue.

I punched the ends of the Whisper White panel with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. I positioned the elements on the card front and adhered them to the front with liquid glue, starting with the label and finishing with the birds. I was careful to apply the liquid glue to the back of the birds in small dots and tried to get good coverage – I wanted good adhesion, but no gushing glue, because it would be much messier with felt than with paper. I finished the card front with a short length of red braided trim knotted and adhered to the label.

I left the inside pretty simple so that there is plenty of room to write a message. I trimmed the bottom of a Whisper White panel with a strip of the Balmy Blue Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Lovely You stamp set has so many different sentiments, and I think that any of them would be perfect for this card. And I’m so glad that the bird die cuts worked so well on the felt – it really makes this card special!
