Happy Monday, y’all – and it’s a three day weekend for me so it actually IS a Happy Monday! Loves me a three day weekend!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live, I appreciate you spending part of YOUR weekend – long or otherwise! – with me. If not, and you’d like to see how to make today’s card, take a look at the replay!
I was CASEing a card from Steffi Helmschrott for the Global Design Project challenge this week, and thought this filled the bill. I used the fun shapes from the newest SAB goody called All Adorned (availabe for FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) with some help from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits. Take a look-see:
And here’s the Global Design Project challenge badge, with the card I CASEd!
I used both of the flourish images from the All Adorned stamp set to create the background for the card front. All it took was stamping each image multiple times in several colors! I started with Flirty Flamingo in the top left corner and then progressed on the diagonal with Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist (I inadvertently used Granny Apple Green on the card in the video!) and ended up with Coastal Cabana!
Before I matted the panel on Basic Black, I cut the large heart from the middle of it with the die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.
I cut out the stitched frame with two of the dies in the framelits from Whisper White and adhered it around the opening in the card front with Liquid Glue. Then I popped the colored cut-out on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from the All Adorned set in Mango Melody and cut it with a smaller Be Mine Stitched Framelits die. That I adhered to the card front with a Dimensional and some Liquid Glue.
I added a Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine bow with a Glue Dot and a Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dot and the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped more of the All Adorned shapes in Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana to a Whisper White panel, plus a second All Adorned sentiment in Mango Melody. Then I added another Glitter Enamel Dot.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat. Then I decided my Mango Melody card base needed a little extra something, so I used the corner image in the All Adorned set to stamp each corner with Mango Melody ink. I did that on the front and on the inside.
Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the inner liner inside and popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Mango Melody corners on the front…
…and I added the flourish image to the envelope flap – stamping it in Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo!
Et Voila! I love how this All Adorned stamp set let me create such a fun background so easily! And the sentiment – especially the one I used on the inside! – is really one of my favorites! I hope you’re planning to add this one to your list of “gotta have” freebies during Sale-A-Bration!
