I simply cannot tell you how much fun I am having creating cards with the “Irresistible Blooms” bundle! The DSP has such beautiful colors and makes it super simple to make a card rather quickly. Not found in any of our current catalogs, this fabulous “Suite” of products can be found in the Stampin’ Up! “Online Exclusives”.
I chose to CASE a card from Rachel Tessman of “Stamp Your Art Out”. She had shared how to showcase both sides of this beautiful DSP. I managed to “tweak” a few things from her samples, but the concept is still the same. Firstly, I cut the DSP to 5.5″ in height. Secondly, score along the left edge at 1/2″ and again at 4.75″. I attached the narrow edge of the DSP to the back side of a base card stock that measures 5.5″ x 4-3/16″. Then I folded the DSP along the second score line backwards onto the front of the card.
I used the the “Stitched Scallop” die from the “Penned Flowers” Die set to cut the edge of a narrow white panel. I attached this panel under the edge of DSP that was folded backwards. Using a panel under the “fold” gives the right edge of the card some stiffness. For the greeting, I used one of the “frame” dies from the “Fabulous Frames” Die set. Next, stamp the flower in Petal Pink (stamped off once) and then stamp the “Thank You” over the flower with Flirty Flamingo ink. I mounted the entire greeting panel on dimensionals.
To complete this card, I added a folded piece of “Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon” under the greeting. In addition, one card has the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots for a touch of bling. On the other card, I used the “Elegant Faceted Gems” in white. These cards are truly “simple and easy” to make.
