Sending a little Hello!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is stunning card made with some “oldies, but goodies” Country Home stamp set and Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder! The designer series paper that I used for the base layer is really what inspired this card, which is great because sometimes I forget about stamp sets that have been around for a while. Not only that, but this DSP is from the Magic in this Night DSP, so this is a win for not only bringing out some neglected products, but also another alternative use for the DSP outside of a Halloween card!

The base layer is this design from the Magic in this Night DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, it is also the opposite side of the DSP that I used for Wednesday’s card:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Use your Stamparatus to line up and stamp the foliage and milk jug stamp in Memento ink. The milk jug is colored in with Dark Smoky Slate and Light and Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. The foliage is colored in with Light Petal Pink, Light and Dark Pretty Peacock, and Light and Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, fussy cutting out.

2. Use the largest scalloped Layering Oval Dies to cut out of Silver Foil and emboss with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder.

3. Tie the Metallic Mesh Ribbon into a small bow.

4. Cut a ½” x 1 ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink, and use the Banners Pick a Punch on each end.

5. Cut a ¾” x 2” piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and use the Banners Pick a Punch on each end. This will be layered under the sentiment piece.

Adhere the fussy cut stamped image onto the embossed Silver Foil piece, adhere to the middle of the base layer, use a glue dot to adhere the mesh ribbon to the milk jug, and use dimensionals to adhere the layered sentiment as shown:

This completed piece is adhered to a Basic Gray 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” and adhere the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Isn’t this a fun and cute card to send to someone just to say “hello”?? There are sentiment from the Country Home stamp set that you could also use for the inside or any of your favorite sentiments!

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!
