To a Wild Rose Card & Journal

Happy Saturday stamping friends!  It’s such a beautiful day here in PA.  It’s almost like the calendar turned to May and the weather decided to totally cooperate.  May has always been my favorite month and this year it’s especially welcomed.  We spent the day cleaning and setting up the porch and cleaning out the flower beds.  Next on my list is to visit my favorite nursery for flowers.  I hope to do that sometime this coming week.  In the meantime, I have some pretty paper flowers to share…

It’s a new month and I’m offering a new set of free monthly tutorials.  This month I’ve created 3 tutorials featuring the To a Wild Rose bundle.  This bundle is featured in the current annual catalog and will be carried over in the 2020-2021 catalog.  Currently, it’s available at a 10% savings. However, it will not be available at the bundled price in the new catalog.

Materials & Measurements

  • Card Base:  Whisper White Thick cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • 2019-2021 6×6 DSP: Purple Posy – 2 1/4″ x 5 3/8″
  • Purple Posy cardstock – 2″ x 5 3/8″
  • Copper Foil – 1/4″ x 5 3/8″ strip

  • Glue the DSP panel to the left side of the card, leaving a 1/8″ margin on the side, top and bottom.
  • Next do the same with the Purple Posy cardstock.  This will overlap the DSP a little.
  • Glue the copper foil strip to cover the seam.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the cardstock with Versa Mark and heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  Note:  You could also do this step before you glue the cardstock to the card base.  I always use the Stamparatus to line up sentiments.

  • The flowers and leaves are stamped in Versa Mark on Whisper White cardstock and heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  I love the look of copper embossing.  This is a retiring product and one I’ll miss.
  • I sponged the flowers with Highland Heather ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink.  Sponging is fast and easy and a very forgiving way to color.
  • Using the coordinating Wild Rose dies, I cut out the flowers and leaves and popped them on the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and is stamped with Highland Heather ink.
  • A strip of DSP, copper foil and colored cardstock simply embellishes the inside.  I also like to coordinate the envelope much like the inside.

I created a matching journal to go along with the card.

  • I purchased a few different sized kraft notebooks from Amazon.  This one measure 5 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • The sentiment on the front cover is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (also retiring) and is  heat embossed with copper embossing powder.
  • The cover is decorated much like the card.

I’ll be sending this set off to a special young woman who is about to embark on the next exciting chapter of her life.  I really enjoy making and giving little gifts like these.  They may not cost much but are created with a lot of thought and love.
