Monday Blues: Dainty Delight Celebration Card

Happy New Month…Happy New Week!  This week is the launch of the new Annual Catalog.  New products are always exciting and also seem to give new life to all those products that carry over.  So with the beginning of the new catalog period and new month, I’ll be trying something new too.  I’ve assigned a “theme” to each day.  By theme, I mean that it may be a certain color, card layout, technique, etc.  I’m starting the week off with the “Monday Blues”.  As blue is my favorite color, I’ll be creating a project featuring that color each Monday.  And even if it’s not your favorite color, the project will be easily adaptable to any color scheme.

So to start the new month, new week and new catalog, here’s my Monday Blues project…

So let’s get to what you came here for…a project.  I just recently purchased the Dainty Delights bundle while it was still at the bundled price off 10% off (which ends today) and I’m so happy I did.  I love the floral images and dies.  They are perfect for so many occasions.  Today, I created a card that could be used for a number of occasions.  I paired this set with the new to be released, Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the details…

Measure & Cut

  • Misty Moonlight card base:  cut at 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ & 3 3/4″ x 1″
  • Misty Moonlight (inside): 5 1/4″ x 4″ & 3 3/4 x 7/8″
  • Night of Navy card stock:   5 1/4″ x 4″ & 3 3/4″ x 7/8″
  • Night of Navy (inside):  5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Silver Foil:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ and 3 3/4″ x 1 1/8″
  • Countryside Inn DSP floral pattern:  3 3/4″ x 3 and 3 3/4″ x 3/4″ (inside)
  • Countryside Inn DSP striped pattern:  3 3/4″ x 2″

Assemble

  • Glue the Night of Navy and Silver Foil to the Misty Moonlight card base.
  • Glue the floral DSP pattern to the top of the card and the striped pattern to the bottom, leaving an 1/8″ border.  There will be a little gap in the the middle but that will be covered up by the sentiment panel.
  • Stamp two of the floral images from the Dainty Details stamp set and heat emboss with black embossing powder.
  • Cut with the coordinating dies.
  • Color with Stampin’ Blends, I used: Real Red, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive.
  • On the Night of Navy strip, stamp the sentiment, from the Dainty Delights stamp set and heat emboss with silver embossing powder.
  • Glue the layers of the sentiment panel together .
  • Position the larger floral image.  I had to cut a little from the bottom.  Glue to the card front.
  • Adhere the sentiment panel with dimensionals.
  • Glue the smaller floral image onto the sentiment panel.
  • I added a thin piece of silver cording from my stash.
  • Lastly, but not really evident in the photo, I added a few clear dots.

  • The inside sentiment is from the Dainty Delights stamp set also.

I hope you enjoyed a nice weekend.  Ours was cold, wet and dreary with a wonderful dose of a grandson sleep-over.  My daughter, Emily participated in the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia on Sunday.  Her and my 5 year old grandson, Jack, spent the weekend in Philadelphia with my older daughter and her husband, who also ran the the race.  So Steve and I enjoyed having our almost 2 year old grandson, Luke, stay with us.  He is at such a fun age, talking and understanding along with NEVER sitting still.  It was a weekend of reading books, playing with trains, watching Sesame Street, and lots of snacking…I loved it!
