Hello! I hope all is going well with you today. We got close to a freeze the other night, but are now back up in the 70’s during the day here in Arizona. I love fall but I don’t like it too cold!
Today I have created a fun #SimpleStamping card for you to try. This card looks more complicated than it is.
I am using Stampin’ Up! product from the Eden’s Garden Collection which is being released today! I will have the item numbers and shopping information at the end of this blog.
Basic White Card Stock (CS): card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; One 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch piece; and one 2 3/4 x 1 inch piece.
Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches, and two 1 x 7/8 inch squares.
On the 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS, start out with one type of leaf. Stamp with the Evening Evergreen ink. Add a second type of leaf in the same color of ink. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge is on either side)
Switch to the Soft Succulent ink and stamp a third type of leaf. Finish stamping this card piece with a fourth type of leaf in the Soft Succulent ink.
Return to the Evening Evergreen ink and stamp the sentiment “Dear Friend How are you?” onto the 2 3/4 x 1 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “My heart is tied to yours…” on the inside panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS card base. Use the Soft Succulent ink to stamp the leaf sprigs on either side of the sentiment.
How To Assemble the Card
Use your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the stamped card piece into 1 1/2 inch strips. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is still on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge on either side). Adhere the strips to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Adhere this card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base.
To create the sentiment, adhere the two 1 x 7/8 inch Evening Evergreen CS pieces to the ends of the sentiment strip. (Note: the 7/8 inch edge is on either side).
Voila! You have finished a great friendship card using only stamps, ink and paper! That is what #SimpleStamping is all about!
Dress It Up
If you want to “Dress It Up” a bit, add a few of the Garden Gems. I added three to make the card sparkle!
