Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a fun card featuring several new products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog! So, when I first sat down to see what new goodies I wanted to use, my brain went into overload and I felt like a kid in a candy store! Not just any candy store, but the super cool one with all the newly released fun and awesome and cool stuff! I wanted to use this and that, don’t forget this over here, and what about this stuff, and wait…this stuff too? And…SQUIRREL! Yeah…..after I took a deep breath and settled down, I decided on just a few items, which I like to think of a “sampler” card!
For the base layer, I cut a piece of Basic Gray cardstock at 2 ½” x 5 ¼” and embossed it with the Dots Embossing Folder from the Checks & Dots Embossing Folders:
For the card front, you will need:
1. Use the largest layering Stitched So Sweetly Die to die-cut from Vellum cardstock.
2. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 2 ½” x 5 ½”, ink up the Daisy Garden stamp with Basic Gray ink, lay the VV cardstock where you choose on the stamp, and rub the back of the cardstock to “stamp” the image. I then used the second largest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut where I wanted out, which ended up being towards the top. This will be layered on top of the die-cut Vellum cardstock.
3. Heat emboss the sentiment from Through it Together in Silver Emboss Powder and use the smallest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut out.
4. Cut a 5 ¾” piece of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon.
5. You will need three of the 3mm Polished Pink Jewels, from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels, not pictured.
Adhere the ends of the ribbon to the back of the embossed cardstock and then adhere this to a Basic Gray cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:
The die-cut layers are adhered over the embossed cardstock base layer, the die-cut sentiment is adhered with dimensionals, and the Polished Pink jewels are placed as shown:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, use Basic Gray ink to ink only one side of the Daisy Garden stamp, lay part of the cardstock over the inked image and rub the back to transfer the inked image to the cardstock, and stamp the sentiment from Through it Together in Polished Pink ink:
What do you think of all these new products?? When I saw the Daisy Garden stamp, I just had to get it since I have the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating punches, as it will coordinate with them! The one tip I can pass along when you ink the stamp for the inside of the card, make sure that you don’t get any ink on the outer rubber edges because that can transfer to the cardstock when you are rubbing the back of the cardstock. If you do, you can easily remove it, but just keep that in mind!
