SSC223 Get Well Soon
It has been a stressful week at my accounting job, so after Awana this evening, I decided that I need a “de-stress” with my card making and what better way than with the Operators at Stamping411 :-).
I wanted to create a fairly quick, easy card and I love the SSC223 sketch this week, so I chose to keep it simple by using Designer Paper for the background.
This sketch has so many possibilities, and again, the Stamping411 Design Team has done a fabulous job! If you have a chance to visit, check them out along with all of the other gorgeous entries!
To create this card:
With the Big Shot™, emboss a piece of the Beau Château Designer Series Paper with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Pink Pirouette with the Oval Designer Frame Textured Impressions™ Folder (I stamped the sentiment first in Soft Suede before embossing) .
Trim around the oval frame, cut off one end of the Designer Series Paper (to flip over and use the reverse side) and tear the upper right hand corner. Use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink to distress the layers a bit and adhere the DSP onto Soft Suede.
Use the Crimper to crimp the exposed corner of the Soft Suede background and a piece of Marina Mist cardstock. Punch the edge of the Marina Mist with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhere over the cut edge of the DSP.
Create the rolled flowers using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch (cut a spiral and roll up- quick and easy) and insert a pearl into the center of each flower (sometimes this can be the trickiest part of the card).
Attach the ribbon and bow, oval with sentiment and the rolled flowers (I used mini glue dots to adhere the flowers to the card).
