Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is for times when we want to encourage a friend or family member. Good Luck is the perfect sentiment to send someone for an upcoming surgery, exam, interview, new job, etc. My friend, Margie, has been wanting a stamp set like this. I hope she likes this card!
My Stampin’ Up! order came last week and I received the Believe You Can stamp set as a Host Reward. (Ask me how you can earn this stamp set for your collection!)
I love how you can change the sentiment in the banner for different occasions. (I am also in love with the quote from Teddy Roosevelt.) This is a versatile stamp set and one I knew I had to have!
I colored the stamped image with my Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies. These double stitched dies cut the image and the border piece. Double whammy! I can use the leftover piece on another card!
I used one die to cut the stamped image and a larger die to cut the Designer Series Paper. I like the way it looks like another layer with the border from the card base You can see how it’s stitched around the edges.
I thought the leaves on the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper would be a good background for the stamped image. The designs in this paper pack are all soft shades of green. You can use this paper with many different color combinations.
Here’s all the details if you would like to make this card:
- Card Base: Mint Macaron Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
- DSP Layer: 5-1/4″ x 4″. Cut the center using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and glue to card front.
- Stamped Layer: Whisper White Cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. Stamp the image and sentiment using Memento Black Ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends: Rich Razzleberry Combo, Mint Macaron Combo, Petal Pink Combo, and So Saffron Combo. Cut with the Stitched Nested Label Dies and glue to the center of the card base.
- Color Rhinestone Basic Jewels with Stampin’ Blends and adhere to flower centers.
- Embellish the envelope with a 1/4″ strip of Mint Macaron cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP. Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.
I bet you know someone who would appreciate this card! This is what I love about creating and sharing cards…encouraging and supporting others with a little handmade kindness!
