Note from Tracy: Creating cards is a wonderful way to relieve stress and we’re all under so much of that right now. I’m spending time in my craft room creating cards to share with you and it’s my hope that you’ll be inspired to start creating. Brighten someone’s day by sending them your beautiful card! Take Care, my friends.
The card I’m sharing with you today was made using Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. This paper was released in early February to coordinate with Sale-a-Bration and Mini catalog products but will only be available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last. These are the products it coordinates with:
- Small Bloom Punch (a Sale-a-Bration gift with a $100 order)
- Heart Punch Pack (Mini Catalog)
- Tulip Builder Punch (Mini Catalog)
- Umbrella Builder Punch (Mini Catalog)
The base of my card is Blushing Bride, not a color I use very often and I’m wondering why. It’s really pretty! I added an embossed layer of Blushing Bride using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. The banner was cut using using the Banner Triple Punch. You can make banners with this punch in three widths – 1″, 1-1/2″, and 2″ but here’s a little trick: when choosing the 2″ width, trim your paper about a sixteenth of an inch so it will slide into the punch easily.
Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out two leaves in Vellum cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White paper using the stamp set Beautiful Friendship and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and also secured the leaves with the dimensionals. I completed the card by adding three Glitter Enamel Dots, in Granny Apple Green. You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List. Stay safe and healthy!
