Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Floral Card

I received a new stamp set and I just had to play with it. (My apologies it’s not Christmas, although there is an item from the Holiday Catalog in the making). My Stampin’ Up! up-line, Amy Koenders, does a drawing from the card posts on our team Facebook page. The prize is a stamp set of our choice. I was one of the lucky ones. Guess who’s getting this card. 🙂

THE CUTTING

  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the front layer.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ for the inside and the front layer; 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for the stamping; and 1″ x 3″ for the message.
  • Garden Green DSP: 3 1/2″ x 2″ and a 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Garden Green 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon: 14″

Tip: I cut the extra paper from the center of the larger front layers to use on other projects. You can use a paper trimmer, die thinlet, or a punch. I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies in this instance. It also helps reduce the weight of the card for mailing.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp Thank You in Garden Green on the 1″ x 3″ strip. Run it through the Big Shot with the 2nd smallest thinlet in the skinnier set of rectangles in the Rectangle Stitched Dies.
  • Stamp the larger leaves stamp in garden green across the bottom of the 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ in second generation (stamp off on scrap paper then onto the card without reinking). Stamp the smaller leaves stamp in first generation with Garden Green.
  • Stamp the flower stamp in Crushed Curry in second generation. Add the complimentary stamp in first generation.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside layer.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the message with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Glue Dot behind the knot of the ribbon to prevent it from sliding during mailing.
