Since I received the Sale-a-Bration Big Day stamp set and the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper , which are both free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion (details below), I have been dying to experiment with them and there is nothing like Stampin’ on a Saturday!!
So I chose two of the papers from the designer series paper and a sheet of Pool Party cardstock for my card base measuring 11 6/8 inches x 4 1/8 inches (A4 cardstock cut in half), which I scored at 5 7/8 inches with my brand spanking new Simply Scored Scoring tool, which I am so excited about (it is like Christmas every time I get a delivery!!). I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/2 inches x 3 6/8 inches as my front panel, to which I adhered two strips of designer series paper measuring 5 inches x 1 1/2 inches and 4 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches length ways with snail adhesive.
Then on to another new toy (eek) I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2 inches wide and used my Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create a tag which I cut down to 2 1/2 inches long.
Then came out the lovely Sale-a-Bration Big Day stamp set and with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink I stamped the largest sentiment in the set on the tag. I then used the Costal Cabana ribbon, part of the Best Year Ever embellishment pack (free with SAB), to tie through the tag as an embellishment. I used the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack to punch out 3 stars, 1 from the DSP and 2 from the Pool Party cardstock. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the tag and the stars to the front panel of Whisper White cardstock and used some Basic Rhinestones to add to the stars and the tag. Once all adhered I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop my front panel to my card base.
For the inside of my card I took the matching sentiment to the one I stamped on the front of my card and in the Pool Party classic ink I stamped this on to a strip of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3/4 inch x 3 1/2 inches and another strip of DSP measuring 1 inch x 4 inches and adhered these to the bottom of the inside of my card.
To finish my card off I used a piece of the DSP measuring 8 7/8 x 8/78 inches and my envelope punch board and created a matching envelope.
I hope you like my latest project, I love the colours of this card very Springtime!!
