Story of Elegance


Happy Tuesday!

I was in a pinch today time wise, (shock and surprise, I know. 😉 ) so I needed a card that I could make quickly.

One of the many things I love about our Designer Series Paper (DSP), is that you can let it do work, and that’s exactly what I did today.

Today’s card has one stamp, one die cut and paper.

Since I  wanted to start crafting a few fall themed cards for use in the upcoming months, I went for our  Hello Harvest bundle, and the Rustic Harvest DSP.

Here is the card I created:

Friendship card made with Stampin' Up! cards

Harvest Hello – Loveliest Day

I really like the bouquet of mums on the card front.  It’s really like giving a bunch of flowers and a card.

A Closer Look

Elegance Made Easy

Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.

First, make your cuts:

  • Rustic Harvest DSP (border)  –   4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Rustic Harvest DSP (focal point) –   4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Die cuts:
    • Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of Basic White card stock using the stamp from  the Hello Harvest stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and die cut using the coordinating die from the Rustic Pumpkin die set.
  • Punch:
    • None

Adhere the Rustic Harvest border panel to an A2 card base made with Thick Basic White card stock.

Layer the Rustic Harvest DSP focal point panel to the card, then add the die cut sentiment to the card using Dimensionals.

Add Pearl Basic Jewels generously around the flowers.

For the inside, I added a 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ border DSP horizontally down the left side.

To finish, add coordinating DSP to the envelope flap.
