Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which starts off my week of Oh So Ombre 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper! This DSP can be earned now thru February 28th for free with a $50 (USD) product purchase! Did I mention that you get 48 sheets, 12 each of one double-sided design in 4 colors!! Who doesn’t love free DSP?? Yes, please! So today, I’ll show you how I made this quick and easy card with just a couple of Stampin’ Up! punches!! I’ll also show you how to use the DSP to decorate your envelope!
The base layer is Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼” (vertical), and the next layer is this design from the Oh So Ombre 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5” (vertical). I used my snips along the edges of both papers to “rough” them up:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Stamp the sentiment from Butterfly Gala in Night of Navy ink and use the round Double Oval Punch to punch out.
2. Use the scalloped Double Oval Punch to punch out of Granny Apple Green cardstock, this will be layered under the above sentiment.
3. Stamp the butterflies shown in Night of Navy ink and use Terracotta Tile (stamping off once first) and Granny Apple Green inks for the second step stamping. For the large butterfly, I stamped first in Granny Apple Green ink and used a sponge dauber with Terracotta Tile ink around the edges. After these dried, I lightly used my Wink of Stella pen over each butterfly.
4. Cut a 4 ½” piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.
First adhere the DSP layer to the base layer, slightly askew, adhere the ribbon across the middle with the ends adhered to the back of the base layer, and then adhere the layered sentiment over the ribbon:
I used mini dimensionals to adhere the butterflies as shown and then adhered this completed piece to a Terracotta Tile cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and cut the 1” x 6” strip of cardstock in half, adhering the ½” x 6” strip along the bottom and trimming off the excess:
For the envelope, stamp one of the butterfly images in Night of Navy ink, using Granny Apple Green ink for the small butterfly second step, and Terracotta Tile ink (stamping off once first) for the large butterfly second step. I used the 2 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP for the envelope flap, even though I have a die for this, you can easily use a corner rounder (Detailed Trio Punch) instead:
This was such an easy card to make, just paper, ink, punches, and a little ribbon! Since Granny Apple Green is not a color I normally use, I searched on Pinterest for some color inspiration and just love this color combination of Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Terracotta Tile! I would never have thought to use these colors! Since I used three sheets of this design, I have three cards and envelopes ready to go! I do have a couple strips of the DSP left over, but I’m sure I will find another card to use them with!
