  • Layering Ovals Dies
  • Stampin’ Scrub
  • Stampin’ Mist

Measurements

  • Flirty Flamingo cardbase 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at  ¼”
  • Cut 2 pies of Flirty Flamingo cardstock 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Cut 1 piece of Fine Art Floral DSP 5 ¼” x 2”
  • Cut 1 piece of Basic White thick cardstock 5” x 2 ¼”
  • Scrap piece of Basic White cardstock 2” x 3”

Instructions

  • Fold the card base along the score line and burnish with your bone folder for a crisp edge
  • Take one of your 5 ¼” x 4” pieces of Flirty Flamingo and place it into the Subtles embossing folder and run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.  This step is optional because the layer will be mostly covered up, but you can see the border of it and the embossing kind of gives it some visual interest.  More on this in the step below…
  • Take  your 5 ¼” x 2” piece of Fine Art Floral DSP and glue it to the bottom of the embossed layer.  For a cleaner-looking card, you can skip this step and just have your embossed layer showing.  It’s really a matter of preference. 
  • Place your second piece of 5 ¼” x 4” Flirty Flamingo cardstock on your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine platform and place the die with the little circles on it about ¾ of the way down.  Then run it through the machine. 
  • Now place your Basic white piece on the platform with the design die near the bottom (not the flower die but the other one – not sure what you call it). 
  • Glue the white die cut piece to the top part of the Flirty Flamingo die cut piece, leaving a border at the top.
  • Wrap about 14” of ribbon around the glued-together pieces and tie a bow just left of center.
  • Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the top of the card leaving a border at the top
  • Stamp the sentiment “Made with love Just for You” from the Quite curvy stamp set onto a 2” x 3” scrap piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  You could also use Flirty Flamingo if you want it to look more monochromatic, but I think the black makes it stand out more.
  • Using the 3rd smallest plain oval die from the Layering Oval dies, cut out a label from a scrap of Basic White cardstock.  Pop it up on dimensionals and adhere it to the top right of the card over the ribbon.
  • Stamp 2 flower stems from the Quite Curvy Stamp set onto a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock.  Then color the flowers with Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends and color in the leaves with Soft Seafoam Stampin Blends.
  • Cut them out using the die from the coordinating Curvy dies.
  • Put a little liquid glue to the top of the oval label and place one flower die cut on it and move it around until you like the placement.  Then do the same thing on the bottom.

Decorating the envelope flap

  • I die cut the envelope flap using a discontinued product – Ornamental Envelopes dies. However, you could use almost any large decorative die to do the same thing. I then cut a piece of Fine Art Floral DSP 5″ x 2″ and applied some liquid glue all around the edges of the die cut, then adhered the DSP over it.
  • The DSP covers part of the adhesive on the envelope flap, so before mailing, you will likely need to add some Stampin Seal to it.

I hope you liked this card and that the instructions were easy to follow. Feel free to case this card or use it as inspiration for your own design. Happy stamping!
