Hand-Penned Friendship Card

Stampin Up Hand Penned Petals Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup.jpg

I’ve been spending time creating with some of the products in the Hand-Penned Suite.  I absolutely love this bundle.  However, today’s card just features the very pretty coordinating Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. The colors in this collection are so inspiring and fun to work with.  It’s also one of the collections available for 15% off this month through August 2nd.

Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper

There’s quite a bit of measuring and cutting on this card.  But once that’s done, it goes together very easily.

  • Emboss the 2 1/4″ Basic White panel using the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder and glue to the large Pale Papaya panel, leaving an 1/8″ border around the top and sides.
  • Glue the dotted DSP pattern below the embossed layer, leaving an 1/8″ border around the bottom and sides.  NOTE:  there may be a little overlapping or a gap where the panels meet in the middle.  The ribbon will hide this.
  • Arrange the 1 1/16″ floral DSP onto the smaller Pale Papaya panel being sure to line up the pattern.  Glue the panel to the embossed panel.
  • Wrap Pale Papaya & White 1/2″ ribbon around this panel.
  • Glue panel to the Basic White card base.
  • The bow was adhered with glue dots.
  • For the sentiment I used a stamp from the Plentiful Plants stamp set and cut using a label die from the All Dressed Up Dies.  This is popped with dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is from the newly retired Happy Thoughts stamp set.  I really wish this set would have stayed longer as the sentiments are  great for the inside of cards.
