Good morning! Sunday has dawned….chilly…here in the mid-Atlantic! Again. Saturday was shirt-sleeve weather and today…not so much. Oh well. That’s what covers, mittens and caps are for, right??
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video at the new time on the new day, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, here’s the replay!
I used the gorgeous Wonderful Romance Suite of goodies for this one – including the stamp set by the same name and my favorite – the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. And I added a couple of sentiments from the All Things Thanks stamp set. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.
I started with some wood-grain paper from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP and matted it on Very Vanilla for the card front. Then two more smaller pieces – different designs, same paper pack – also matted on Very Vanilla, were added to the card front with Liquid Glue.
I created the grid by first cutting a piece of the same wood-grain paper with a square Stitched Shapes Framelits die – and then using the next size down to cut out the middle.
To create the grid, I adhered 1/8″ strips of the DSP to the back of the “window”. Then I added a square of the vellum Floral Romance Specialty DSP behind all that. Finally, I matted the whole thing on Very Vanilla and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment, from the All Things Thanks stamp set (Annual Catalog), is stamped in Mossy Meadow on a strip of the wood-grain Floral Romance Specialty DSP. I bannerized one end with my Paper Snips and adhered it with Liquid Glue.
I stuck on a Floral Romance Seal and then used Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow and an Old Olive Linen Thread simple bow.
I added a Petal Pink Frosted Flower Embellishment in each of the “panes” – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from All Things Thanks in Mossy Meadow on a panel of Floral Romance Specialty DSP. Then I added a couple of leaves and “dots” from Wonderful Romance in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow, using my Stamparatus.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Very Vanilla mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-once leaves and dots on the front…
…and a touch more of the Floral Romance Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I truly haven’t got enough words to say how much I love this Floral Romance Specialty DSP!! It’s one of the prettiest papers I think we’ve ever had. And it works so spectacularly with the Wonderful Romance stamp set – it’s like they were made for each other!
Oh. Wait…they were! I hope you like!
P.S. This is it, folks. Last Day. No more Sale-A-Bration. No more Super XXL Starter Kit. No More Double Peppermints. End of the day. Git ‘er done!
