Story of Elegance

Welcome to Friday!

I hope that this week has been good to your heart, mind and body.

For my card today, I’m sharing one last card that I made with Friendly Hello Stamp set.  As I’ve shared before, I love that you can get so many different looks with this stamp set.  And don’t forget, you get this stamp set bundled with beautiful Designer Series Paper FREE with a purchase of $100.

Here is today’s card:Greeting card made with Stampin' Up! products

Friendly Hello – Love and Support

Life happens to all of us.  I like to have a few cards on hand to let those who are dear to me know that I’m here for them.  The sentiment in the Friendly Hello stamp set is just perfect for that.

Here’s a closer look at some of the elements on the card.  I didn’t want a completely black and white card, but I didn’t want to add another color, so I heat embossed the bird and branch in silver.

A Closer Look

Elegance Made Easy 

Here’s how to recreate this card.

To start, cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Basic Black card stock  and  add it to a card base made with Thick Basic White card stock.

Next, emboss a 4 ” x 5 1/4″ piece of Basic White card stock using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and add it to the card.

Stamp the flowers in the corners of a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Basic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink; and stamp the bird between them  in VersaMark and emboss using  Silver embossing powder.

Use Petal Pink ink to stamp the sentiment and color the center of all the flowers with a Dark Petal Pink Blends marker.

Mount the panel onto the embossed panel of the card using Foam Adhesive Sheet cut to size.

Finish by adding a bow made with Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to the card with Mini Glue Dot.Greeting card and coordinating envelope made with Stampin' Up! products
