Story of Elegance

Welcome to the weekend!

Thank you for stopping by.

Today I was playing with one of my favorite things in the July-December 2023 mini catalog – the Splendid Day suite of products.  You know that if I’m being honest, all my products are my favorite though.  😉

I love the soft colors and the beautiful papers that are in this suite.

And here’s what I created:

Splendid Day – Sending Hugs

There are some many wonderful elements in this suite, from the metallic papers to the cute open leaf trinkets.  I just love them!

A Closer Look

Elegance Made Easy

Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.

First, make your cuts:

  • Splendid Day Designer Series Paper (DSP)  – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Metallic Splendid Day DSP  – 3″ x 3 3/4″
  • Soft Succulent Satin Shimmer ribbon – 4 1/4″ (angle the ends)
  • White Frayed ribbon – 4 1/2″ (angle at ends)
  • Die cuts:
    • With Basic White card stock, stamp and heat emboss the sentiment and die cut using the second smallest die from the Tailor Made Tags die set.
  • Punch:
    • None

Adhere the Soft Seafoam DSP panel to an A2 card base ( 5 1/2″ x  8 1/2″ scored on the long side at 4 1/4″) made with Thick Basic White card stock.

Angle the Metallic DSP onto the card.

Tie the Open Leaf Trinket to the die cut sentiment  by making a bow with a piece of ribbon.

Add the two pieces of ribbon to the card front, then add the assembled sentiment with Dimensionals.

Finish by adding Heart Pearls.

For the inside, I added a small strip of Soft Seafoam DSP to coordinate with the card front.

To complete the project, add DSP to the envelope flap.
