Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set

Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set

What a treat it would be to receive Encouraging Words from Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, don’t you agree?  By adding a splash of colour (Tranquil Tide in this case) from the In Color Designer Series Paper, you can create a “quick & easy” card in a short amount of time.

 

Details and Instructions:

  1. Cut Basic Black 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 Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Big Shot and Subtle Embossing Folder to add a design.
  3. Cut 2017-2019 In Color DSP at 2″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach near the left side of the embossed Whisper White cardstock with Snail Adhesive.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the card base.
  4. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 4″ x 2″.  Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the tree from Rooted In Nature.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach this layer to Basic Black Cardstock that has been cut at 4-1/4″ x 2-1/4″.
  5. Cut a length of Black Baker’s Twine.  Wrap around the tree layer and tie a bow.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach this layer over the DSP.
  6. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 1/2″ x 2-3/4″.
      1. Tip: I used the Stamparatus to line up the words even though my stamp set is mounted on wood.  By figuring out where to place the paper, I could place the wooden part of the stamp in the corner and my words were stamped in the centre of the cardstock.
  7. Use Snail Adhesive to attach a small piece of matching DSP along the bottom of the greeting piece.  Use the Paper Snips to angle trim each end.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the “tree” layer making sure to show a small bit of white at the bottom.
  8. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Tranquil Tide Classic Ink (or coordinating ink if using a different DSP) to stamp the desired greeting.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the inside of the card.

With a greeting like this on the inside of the card base, you won’t have to write much more!

Now let’s have a closer look at the finished card:

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

Today I’m sharing this simple, yet elegant, card to wish your loved one a Happy Mother’s Day!  Even though my Mother has been gone for 12 years, I miss her every day and I cherish the memories that I have.

When Mother’s Day arrives each year, I reminisce about all the great times I shared with my Mom and I make specials cards to give to other Mom’s in my life – like my daughter and my daughter-in-law!

Here are the directions for making this card:

  1. Cut Blushing Bride 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 Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Big Shot and Quilt Top Embossing Folder to add a design.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the card front.
  3. Cut Petal Promenade DSP at 3″ x 4″.
  4. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2″ x 4″.  Use Blushing Bride Classic Ink to stamp greeting.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the DSP.
  5. Attach a piece of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon around the greeting layer and the DSP.  Tie another piece of the same ribbon to create a faux bow.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the Whisper White layer.
  7. Embellish with Basic Pearls.

Here’s one with a different look – fewer pearls.
