Hello, Dear Friend!
One of my favourite card designs is monochromatic so I’m pleased to share another one with you today – Hello, Dear Friend! This card is using the Life Is Grand cling stamp set. Because the stamps cling so well to the glass blocks, I was able to place the greeting exactly where I wanted it without the stamp falling off the block – BONUS!!
I’ve used one of the organdy ribbons from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Event. This combo pack of 5 different colours was so popular, it was sold out in 8 weeks!! I’m so glad I was able to get a package and I love how it matches the Botanical Butterfly DSP from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Event!
Let’s look at the measurements and instructions:
- Cut Highland Heather Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
- Cut Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base with Snail Adhesive.
- Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 2-3/4″ x 4-1/2″. Use Highland Heather Classic Ink to stamp greeting from Life is Grand stamp set near the top of the Whisper White Cardstock. Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch out a set of butterflies under the greeting. (You can save the punched out butterflies for “butterfly confetti” or another project!)
- Cut Highland Heather Cardstock at 3″ x 4-5/8″. Use the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the area behind the butterflies punched out of the Whisper White Cardstock so that the DSP will show through. Tip: If desired, you can mark where the butterfly sits on the Highland Heather Cardstock to reduce the guessing of where to punch with the circle punch.
- Use Liquid Glue on the Highland Heather layer and attach the Whisper White layer with the greeting stamped on it.
- Attach the ribbon and faux bow near the top of the greeting layer.
- Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the assembled greeting layer over the DSP.
- Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels as bodies of the butterflies.
- Stamp greeting and butterflies on the inside layer with Highland Heather Classic Ink.
These are the products used:
