Peek of Petal Pink with Ornate Garden

Hello…it’s Saturday but then again every day this week felt like Saturday! I hope you are doing well. We’ve been doing our part by staying home.  Fortunately, my husband and I enjoy walking so that’s been our outdoor activity at least twice a day.  We also have an ongoing scrabble game with a $$ prize that usually lasts a few days at a time.  And we developed the perfect amount of togetherness and alone time for our hobbies.  So needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the craft room!

My card today features a pattern from the new Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper.  Here, have a look…

Petal Pink Peek with Ornate Garden Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinupWith so many pretty patterns in this paper collection, it’s hard to pick a favorite.  But this pretty floral with a touch of gold metallic is at the top of my list.

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White thick card base:  cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Petal Pink card stock layer: cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White card stock rectangular panel: see explanation below
  • Petal Pink card stock (inside panel): cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White card stock (inside panel): cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Subtle DSP & Petal Pink card stock scraps (for inside panel and envelope)

Details

  • After preparing all the cuts mentioned above, I cut 3 stitched squares from Gold Foil using the Stitched Shapes dies.
  • Using a square die a little smaller than the stitched one from the Layering Squares dies, I then cut 3 squares from the DSP.
  • I colored random corner flowers on the DSP squares using the Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend before adhering it to the stitched gold foil square.
  • Then I glued the gold foil to the rectangular Whisper White panel, which was then glued to the Petal Pink mat. Instead of trying to measure the rectangular panel, I simply glued the squares leaving to a piece of Whisper White card stock and trimmed around them, leaving a very thin border.  I know this is not very precise but it worked for me.

  • Using the Stamparatus, I positioned the sentiment, which is from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
  • I wrapped a piece of retired gold baker’s twine around the card twice and tied the bow.
  • Lastly, this panel was adhered to the card base with a piece of fun foam for added dimension .

  • Keeping the inside simple, I stamped the sentiment, also from Good Morning, Magnolia with Early Espresso ink and added a strip from the 6 x 6 Subtle DSP.
