Do you have a lot of scraps laying around your craft room? I have a great card for you to use some of those small pieces of paper. It has been pretty gray here in Ohio and I wanted some bright colors to use on my card today. In the Happiness Blooms designer series paper, there are a lot of cheerful and bright patterns and colors. I love them! I saw this card online, created by Bonnie O'Neill, and knew I wanted to make it. Thank you Bonnie for sharing your wonderful card with everyone!
Two of my favorite colors together are Calypso Coral and Night of Navy. I could use them on every project, but I think you would get sick of only seeing those colors. LOL I even have those colors in my kitchen!
I used the Incredible Like You stamp set in the occasions catalog for the sentiment and little flowers. Did you know this stamp set also has a project kit that coordinates? You can make 16 cards and it comes with a printed polypropylene storage envelope. Check it out HERE. This kit is currently on backorder, you can order it, you just won't get it right now. It is suppose to be in the warehouse on April 1st.
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
Night of Navy
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Call Me Clover
- cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
- cut at 2" x 2" for sentiment
- cut at 3 3/4" x 5" for the front
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
- cut 5 at 1" x 3 3/4"
I glued the 1" strips of designer series paper to the 3 3/4" x 5" whisper white cardstock. Then I adhered them to the Calypso Coral layer and wrapped the Calypso Coral 3/8" Satin Ribbon around it. I then put Stampin Dimensionals between the Calypso Coral and Night of Navy Layer.
I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy ink and stamped the flowers with Calypso Coral and Call Me Clover ink. The sentiment is popped with Stampin Dimensionals and to finish the card off I added a bow. For the inside of the card and on the envelope I stamped the stem for the little flowers and three small flowers to the stem (I forgot to take a picture of it).
Anyone you send this card too, will be happy to get it!
