Yesterday I posted four Simple Fall Cards inspired by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping. This is Part 2 – taking those simple cards and adding a few extras to make them showy. Here’s a comparison of the finished Showy vs. Simple. (Note: I decided not to make the 4th Halloween card showy. I just don’t send many Halloween cards.)
The paper measurements are the same for the white and black circles and the colored card strips (see yesterday’s post). The front panels are Whisper White pieces cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ (3) and another 3 for the inside of the card. The card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ cut from Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie. I also added 9″ of Basic Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon (3″ for each card).
I used the VersaMark Stamp Pad and Gold Embossing Powder to wet emboss the 3 leaf images from the To Every Season Stamp Set on the colored card strips. I did the same for the messages on the white circles. I used the Woodland Embossing Folder through my Big Shot to dry emboss 3 white panels for the front of the card. I assembled using snail adhesive for the papers, Stamp Diminsionals for the white circle and Mini Glue Dots for the Ribbon. I used scrap strips (2 3/4″ x 3/4″) of whisper white to stamp the rectangle messages (mounted with stampin’ diminsionals) and of colored cardstock to embellish the inside of the cards.
I love the simple cards, but the showy are definitely my favorite….worth the extra fun! Happy Stamp Dabbling!Product List
