I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Bundle and the coordinating Beauty of the Earth 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to make this card. This bundle has been super fun to create with. Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
- Beauty of the Earth 12″x12″ DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel), 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (env) & 4 1/4″ x 1/4″ (inside)
- Vellum Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut in Stitched Rectangles Dies
- Mossy Meadow Cardstock: large tree top outline die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies and 3 1/2″ x 1″ strip for die cutting (front)
- Early Expresso Cardstock: tree trunk and branches die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
- Bumblebee Cardstock: tree foliage die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies
- Basic White Cardstock: small flagged label die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies (there is a smooth edge die in the Beautiful Trees Dies if you prefer)
I stamped the Hello sentiment with Mossy Meadow Ink on the Tasteful Label die cut. With Bumblebee Ink, I stamped the tree top image from Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set over the tree foliage die cut. I love the texture it gave! I adhered the tree die cut to the green tree top outline with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then added the stamped foliage on top.
On the inside of the card base I stamped the tree image with Second Generation Early Expresso, Mossy Meadow and Bumblebee Inks. I adhered the small DSP strip along the bottom edge. I adhered the larger DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.
To assemble the card, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the tree die cut and the “underbrush” die cut. I adhered the DSP panel to the card base and then dry fit the Vellum die cut, tree die cut and underbrush die cut. I added the Crushed Curry Holiday Basic Rhinestones with my Take Your Pick Tool and the tree die cut to the vellum rectangle. I applied liquid glue under these elements to adhere the vellum to the front panel. I then slipped the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon under the tree trunk and tied it in a bow around the top of the card panel. Lastly, I added the sentiment label and the underbrush.
