Words of encouragement

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a stunning card featuring the Beautiful Promenade Bundle and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! The Petal Promenade DSP was a must on my list from the Annual Catalog and I recently decided to purchase the coordinating stamp set and dies bundle. I was really on the fence for a while about this bundle, but after really looking at all the creativity with it and really seeing the sentiments, I caved in! lol The card I am featuring today is one that I made for someone very special to me because having a beautiful card to express your love and support during a difficult time can mean the world to them.

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer is from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need enough Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to go around the DSP, Gold Metallic Pearls, use Gold Foil Sheets to cut out the detailed thinlit from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies, and stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Versamark and emboss in Gold Emboss Powder on Petal Pink cardstock, then cutting out with the circle thinlit from the Stitched Labels Thinlits Dies:

To assemble the card front, adhere the ribbon around the base layer and adhere this to the card base. Next, adhere the sentiment to the foil sheet, adhere this piece to the DSP with dimensionals, and then place the Gold Metallic Pearls in the center of the flowers on the DSP:

The inside sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder. The hearts along the bottom are from the Stitched Labels Framelits, cut out from Gold Foil Sheet:

This is such a beautiful suite and I am so happy that I decided to purchase the stamp set and coordinating thinlits! Much to my surprise and goes to show you that I was not paying attention when I placed my order, but one of the thinlits actually cuts the DSP so you can layer on the inside of your cards! I always kick myself when I think back on how I missed out on the thinlits SU! sold so you could insert DSP to the inside of your card and even though I figured out a template that works for our envelopes, this was an even bigger win for me! I love to decorate the outside of envelopes and now I can make the inside pretty too!!
