Thinking of You card

I love the Earth Elements colour family from Stampin' Up & thought the colours really complemented the Carte Postale stamp set.

This card has been made using the following Stampin' Up! products:
Stamps Carte Postale, Sincere Salutations, Stampin' Around Leaves a la Carte
Card Stock Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Paper White Vellum
Inks Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Punches Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, 3/16" Corner Rounder
Embellishments Old Olive brad (Earth Elements set), Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon

  1. Cut a piece of A4 Old Olive card stock in half to produce 2 x A5 pieces. Take one of these pieces & fold it in half to create the A6 card blank.

  2. Stamp the front of the card blank & a piece of Very Vanilla card using the Leaves a la Carte Stampin' Around wheel & Old Olive ink

  3. Stamp the flowers from Carte Postale onto the vellum with Chocolate Chip ink. Set aside to dry.

  4. Cut a piece of the stamped Very Vanilla card to fit the front of the card vertically & distress one edge using the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit. Ink this edge with Old Olive ink.

  5. Cut a length of each of the ribbons slightly longer than the piece of Very Vanilla card & attach with double sided tape, the Chocolate Chip taffeta on top of the Old Olive grosgrain. Secure the ends of the ribbon on the back of the card, then attach this to the front of the card blank on the left hand side, using double sided tape.

  6. Punch the Scallop Circle from Chocolate Chip card & punch a 1-3/8" Circle from Old Olive card. Stamp the flower from Carte Postale onto Very Vanilla card with Chocolate Chip ink & punch out using the 1-1/4" Circle punch. Mount this onto the Old Olive circle with SNAIL adhesive, make a hole through the centre & fasten the brad in place, then mount this onto the Chocolate Chip scallop circle. Mount this onto the card blank using Stampin' Dimensionals.

  7. Stamp Thinking of You (from Sincere Salutations) onto Very Vanilla card with Chocolate Chip ink. Cut out into a rectangle & round the corners. Mount this onto a piece of Chocolate Chip card & cut to size.

  8. Tear a strip of the stamped vellum to fit the width of the card blank & attach using SNAIL adhesive. Mount the greeting on top of this using SNAIL adhesive.

Et Voila!! The card can be adapted for many occasions by simply changing the greeting.
