So Glad We Are Friends

So Glad We Are Friends

This vellum cardstock comes with a pattern already on it and it creates a beautiful background to say I’m So Glad We Are Friends!  Because it already has a pattern, you don’t have to worry about:

  • what kind of ink to stamp on it
  • if the ink will dry
  • what adhesive should you use to attach it to the card base

For a change, I’ve cut the vellum DSP as the first layer and backed it with Pear Pizzazz Cardstock cut at the next smallest size.  The resulting “overhang” of the vellum layer gives a subtle see-through edge.

Dimensions and instructions:

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Pear Pizzazz Cardstock at 3-3/4″ x 5″ – Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card front.
  3. Cut a piece of Vellum Floral Romance Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″ – Use Liquid Glue behind the dark leaves and adhere over the Pear Pizzazz layer.
  4. Use Big Shot and the Oval Stitched Framelits to cut out a Pear Pizzazz layer – Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the Floral Velum layer.
  5. Use Mossy Meadow Classic Stamp Pad to stamp the greeting on Whisper White Cardstock – Use Big Shot and the Oval Stitched Framelits to cut out the greeting and attach over the Pear Pizzazz layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. For the inside layer:
    – cut a 6″ x 6″ square of Whisper White Cardstock – fold in 1/2 both directions – turn over and fold on the diagonal – use the Envelope Punch Board to round all 4 corners – stamp the greetings on the right side and a design on the left side
    – cut 2 pieces of coordinating DSP at 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ – cut each of them across the diagonal using the Stampin’ Paper Trimmer or your Paper Snips – attach with Liquid Glue alternating on the top and the bottom sections
  7. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the right-hand side to the inside of the card base TIP:  Do not place the insert right up against the fold of the card base – apply adhesive to the left-hand side – close the card base over top of the insert to adhere the left-hand side
