For the past several days I’ve been sharing some basic measurements that I use frequently. Basically it creates a foundation and then you build from there. My layers are:

  • Card Base:  11″ x 4-1/4″   score paper at 5-1/2″
  • 1st Layer:  5-1/4″ x 4″
  • 2nd Layer:  5″ x 3-3/4″

After making the layers using Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, Soft Sky and Night of Navy cardstock, I wrapped Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon around the the top two layers and secured it with Snail on the back.  Then, I added Snail to the center of a Delicate White Doily and attached it to the front of the card.

The cute tree and swing are from the stamp set A Good Day.  It was stamped using Memento Ink and colored in with the Stampin’ Write markers in Crumb Cake, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight. It was cut out with the 1-3/8″ Scallop punch and sits on a Night of Navy circle using a 1-3/4″ Circle punch. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and attached it to the doily.  The sentiment is also from this same stamp set and I punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  It’s tucked under the tree and a Glitter Enamel Dot was added at the end for a little sparkle.  Very easy to make but really cute!

Here’s another version but this time the stripes on the Designer Series paper are vertical. I used the same punches but also added the Starburst punch. The colors I used are Fresh Fig and Soft Sky. The sentiment and leaves underneath are also from the stamp set A Good Day.  I colored the leaves in with a Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I used 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Fresh Fig and wrapped it around the Soft Sky cardstock and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper before attaching it to the card base.

All of the supplies I used for both cards are listed below.
