Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful Mother’s Day card that is an easy One Sheet Wonder for making multiples of! Since Mother’s Day is less than a couple weeks away, now is the time to start making and sending your cards! If you are one that likes to get the most out of your Designer Series Paper, but also like to keep it easy, today’s card may be for you! With one simple added cut, I was able to make twelve cards, instead of six, from one sheet of DSP!
The base layer for this card is Bermuda Bay cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. You will also need this design from the Perennial Essence DSP, cut at 2” x 5 ¼” and a piece of Silver Foil Sheet punched out with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch measuring 5 ¼”:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp the sentiment form Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss in on Whisper White cardstock and use the larger round detailed die from Stitched Labels Dies.
2. On the lighter side of the Old Olive Vellum cardstock from the Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock, stamp the leaf stamp in Mossy Meadow ink and punch out with the coordinating Leaf Punch two times.
3. Using the fourth smallest circle from Layering Circle Dies, cut out a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. This will be adhered under the sentiment.
4. Using the fourth largest scalloped circle from Layering Circle Dies, cut out a piece of vellum cardstock. This will be layered under the Blackberry Bliss cardstock circle.
5. Using the Linen Thread, wrap the thread around the knuckle part of your hand, this is wider than your fingers, two times. You want to make sure that you don’t wrap the thread tight around your knuckles and to have a little extra thread at the beginning and end of the wrap. The picture of the thread might show you what I’m referencing.
To assemble the base layer, I first adhered the foil punched piece to the 2” DSP strip, along the edge, and then adhere this to the embossed cardstock. I used my grid paper to help make sure the DSP was adhered evenly from the edge of the cardstock:
After adhering the sentiment layers, you will want to adhere the vellum leaves by using a small amount of adhesive at a diagonal direction:
I used adhesive around the middle area of the DSP, twisted the Linen Thread into a “figure eight” and then laid the thread on the adhesive. I placed a dimensional on each side of the middle twist of the Linen Thread and then placed the layered sentiment piece on top of the dimensionals:
This completed piece is adhered to a Pool Party cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Strong & Beautiful in Blackberry Bliss ink, and adhere a ½” x 4” piece of coordinating DSP along the bottom. Since cutting up the DSP will only give you six strips for the inside, you can stamp the larger solid flower from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss ink along the bottom:
Here are my 11 other cards that I made! The best thing to do, is to really set this up as an assembly line, get all your cuts, stamping, and punches done!
1. Cut and score 6 sheets of Pool Party cardstock at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½” for your 6 card bases.
2. Cut 3 sheets of Bermuda Bay cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” for your 12 card bases and then emboss with the Subtle 3D EF.
3. Cut your 12” x 12” DSP down so you have six pieces measuring 4” x 5 ¼” and then cut at 2” along the 4” side. This will give you 12 pieces.
4. Cut a piece of Silver Foil Sheet at 4” x 5 ¼” and use the Decorative Ribbon Punch along the 5 ¼” until you use the foil sheet up, cut more as needed, until you have 12 pieces.
5. Stamp 24 of the leaves on the Old Olive vellum cardstock, set aside to dry (ink takes a little but longer to dry on vellum cardstock). Once dry, use the Leaf Punch to punch them all out.
6. For stamping and cutting the front sentiment piece, I stamped one and then cut out on a smaller piece of WW cardstock. I then used that smaller piece as a guide to make sure I stamped the sentiment proportionally on a larger strip of WW cardstock, this way I stamped all at once and then cut out with the die all at once.
7. For the layering circle and scalloped circle pieces, I cut strips of the cardstock and cut them out at the same time.
8. I did not wrap and cut the Linen Thread pieces all at once, I did those one at a time for each card.
9. I cut and stamped the inside sentiment pieces at one time, you will need 3 sheets of WW cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” for a total of 12 pieces.
10. I assemble all the base layers together at one time.
11. I assembled all the sentiment pieces together at one time.
12. I adhered the Linen Thread pieces to the DSP, the leaves to the back of the sentiment, and then the sentiment piece on top of the Linen Thread with the dimensionals.
13. I burnished the Pool Party cardstock card bases at the score line, adhered the completed base layer to the front, and then inserted the inside sentiment piece, this will be adhered inside later
I know this may seem like a lot, the prep time is what takes the most, but once you get that done, assembling is a breeze!
