Fabulous Work of Art

Here is the fourth card from the October Make and Take and you won't believe how incredibly easy this elegant card is to make!

  • Basic Black card stock 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"
  • Blackberry Bliss card stock 1-3/4" x 4-5/8"
  • Whisper White card stock 1-1/2" x 4-1/4"
  • Whisper White card stock 3-3/4" x 5"
  • Stamps: Corner Garden, Work of Art
  • Ink: Versamark, Wisteria Wonder
  • Accessories: Embossing Buddy, Clear embossing powder, Silver Satin Ribbon, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, Stampin' Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Start off by folding the Basic Black card stock on the score line. Rub the Embossing Buddy all over the card front then stamp the Corner Garden background image onto the card front in Versamark ink. Cover the stamped image with clear embossing powder and tap off the excess then heat it with your Heat Tool until it's nice and shiny. 

Next take Paper Snips and trim the end of the Whisper White card stock into a banner shape. Stamp the greeting from Work of Art onto the bottom of the banner in Wisteria Wonder ink. Use Glue stick to glue the banner onto the Blackberry Bliss card stock. Then use Paper Snips to trim the Blackberry Bliss card stock into a banner shape that matches the Whisper White banner. Use some Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere this layer onto the card front.

Next use the Bitty Butterfly punch on a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and glue the sparkly butterfly onto the banner above the greeting with a Glue Dot. Wrap the Silver Satin ribbon around the card front and tie it into a lovely bow. 

Finally for the inside just stamp the Corner Garden image onto the Whisper White card stock in Wisteria Wonder ink and glue it inside the card with glue stick. 

Now you're done! That was really easy right?
