Since today is the Fourth of July I’d like to wish you all a Happy Fourth! Shock…I do not have a red, white and blue card for you. 🙂 Instead, I have a little different twist on a greeting card. Got the inspiration from Dawn Griffith. She has so many great ideas so “why invent the wheel”!
Instead of the normal card this one has a single piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then you build from there.
I used the new In Color – Fresh Fig and the Fresh Florals DSP. Those new In Colors are great.
The Blushing Bride is adhered to the Fresh Fig and then there is a small fold in the DSP which adheres over the Blushing Bride. Whisper White is then centered with the back of the DSP onto the Blushing Bride. It’s quite different and I do like unique folds and cards.
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Stamp Set – Bunch of Blossoms
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper – Fresh Fig, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Fresh Florals DSP
Accessories – Laying Circles Framelits, White Satin Ribbon (R), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch
This is such a fun card to make and I can see it made with all the new In Colors. It would make a great gift set of Thank You cards in a cute little box! Hmm…just might do that!
Here are the measurements I used:
Fresh Fig – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; Blushing Bride – 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″; Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; DSP – 3 1/4″ x 6″, score on the 3 1/4″ side at
I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. Punch out a 1 3/4″ circle from Fresh Fig, and a 2″ circle from Silver Glimmer. Glue them together. (Might want to use your Fast Fuse especially on the Glimmer paper.) Using the 2 1/8″ Circle Framelit cut out a circle in the DSP, then use that die and the 2 1/2″ Scallop die together to make the frame. Glue it together and add the ribbon and you’ve got an awesome card.
Give this card a try and send me a photo…I’ll highlight you as my guest stamper!
