Simple Special Celebrations Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which featuring the Special Celebrations stamp set! Whether you are making a card for an upcoming wedding, or even an anniversary, this quick and easy card will surely mean the world to the recipient! I chose to pair this stamp set with All My Love DSP and Be Mine Stitched Shapes Framelits to show you not only how to use up your DSP, but also to combine products you may not have thought about!

For the card front, start with Lovely Lipstick cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, this design from All My Love DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”, and Vellum cardstock, cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¾”:

You will also use about 4 ¼” of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon, this heart die cut out of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, and a ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the sentiment heat embossed in silver, and then the ends punched with the Banner Triple Punch:

To assemble the card front, I first positioned the Vellum cardstock on the DSP, used blocks to keep in place, and then placed some adhesive in the middle of the ribbon to adhere to the Vellum cardstock:

I then used some liquid glue (or you can use snail) on the back of the Vellum cardstock behind the ribbon, place on the DSP, and then adhere the ends of the ribbon to the back of the DSP:

I then used liquid glue (or if you have the adhesive sheets, place that on the back of the cardstock before cutting with the die) to adhere the die cut heart on top of the ribbon and DSP, place mini dimensionals at the end of the sentiment (this will also help secure the die cut heart to the vellum), and then adhere this completed piece to the Lovely Lipstick cardstock base layer:

This completed card front will be adhered to a Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, I cut another piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5” to layer on top, and then heat embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder. I decided to use the rose die from the set in Lovely Lipstick cardstock and adhered to the bottom corner:

Stunning but easy card to make! You can easily change this DSP up or even “create your own” DSP using the Forever Lovely stamp set to customize your colors! All the products used for this card are carrying over to the new catalog, EXCEPT the All My Love DSP, this is on the retirement list and is only available while supplies last.

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
