Story of Elegance
Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.
First, make your cuts:
- Gray Granite card stock – 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Softly Stipled DSP – 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ (dry emboss using Layered Florals 3D embossing folder) and 3/4″ x 4
- Basic White card stock – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Die cuts:
- Stamped large floral (Basic Gray Ink), foliage in Basic White, Gray Granite and flowers in Bubble Bath
Adhere Gray Granite panel to the front of an A2 card base made with Thick Basic White card stock. (Note: An A2 card base is made by cutting an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Thick card stock in half on the long side. Score the 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ (half sheet) of card stock at 4 1/4 “.)
Add the embossed DSP onto the Gray Granite panel.
Arrange the die cuts to your liking and add to the card front along with a bit of silver thread.
Add a sentiment of your choice. I used a heat foiled sentiment and adhered with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellish using silver pearls, or embellishment of choice.
For the inside, I printed my greeting onto the Basic White panel and added the DSP strip to the bottom of the panel before adhering to the inside of the card.
To complete the project, add a strip of embossed DSP to the envelope flap, and stamp a flower on the envelope front using Gray Granite ink.
