Back to the simpler things in life. I wanted to make a simple card while I have some free time and loved what came out of my "simple but I like it". I am getting ready to see my son who will be 28 on the 26th off to Columbia Law School. I love NYC and so am excited about the certainty that we will be making several trips there to see him. But because I wanted to have posts scheduled while I am away chose to showcase the following Card today:
Whole Lot Of Lovely Thinking Of You Card
by Phyllis Shepherd Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator
The supplies are listed below and link to my store, so if you want anything, just click and shop.
The Whole Lot Of Lovely Designer Series Paper was cut at 4" by 5 1/4".
The Whisper White Cardstock was cut using a sheet of 8 1/2" by 11" cardstock. On the 11" side, it was cut at 5 1/2" using the Stampin' Trimmer. This made two pieces. They were scored on the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4" and folded. One of the two pieces were kept for this card and another was saved for later.
The Designer Series Paper was adhered to the card using Snail Adhesive. A tip to correct where you place it if you can not get it up is to slip a piece of dental floss in between the paper and cardstock gently sliding through the two pieces until the paper is off. Then the paper can be positioned and placed down again on the card.
The Lots Of Love stamp set was used for the sentiment. Many of the sentiment were stamped in black on Whisper White cardstock. A 1 3/4" Circle punch was used to punch the sentiments out. One was used for this card and the others saved for future use. The smallest circle from the Stitched Framelits dies was cut four times using the Big Shot. The circles were placed on the card again using Snail Adhesive. The sentiment was placed on top of two of the circles using Snail Adhesive. A bow was tied out of the black ribbon and placed at the top of the sentiment stamped circle using mini glue dots.
So easy!!! The best part is that you can get six pieces of Designer Series Paper out of one sheet cutting it this way.
You will see several more versions that I came up with. I hope you will give them a try.
