Happy Thursday! I hope your week is going well! And what a week it’s been! How do you like the new catalog so far? Isn’t it gorgeous?!? So many pretty things in that catalog!!!! Today we played with the brand new Hues of Happiness Suite of product. Were you able to catch my Facebook Live for it? If not, you can watch the replay over on my YouTube Channel here. While you are there, I would so appreciate it if you gave my video a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already.
Here are the measurements for my card:
- Card base in Coastal Cabana cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 6 3/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
- Window Sheet cut at 3″ x 4 1/4″
- Hues of Happiness DSP 2 cut at 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
- Basic White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside
While seeing everyone’s beautiful creations on our demonstrator Facebook Group, I saw someone create something similar to this and thought it was just stunning. I started by choosing my card base in Coastal Cabana and trimmed it to size. I added some Tear & Tape adhesive right at the edge of the top fold of the card base and attached the piece of Window Sheet. I then added another strip of Tear & Tape to the edge of the 1 1/4″ strip of cardstock and attached it to the bottom of the Window Sheet, making sure to line it up with the back of the card base. Next I trimmed my DSP and added both piece to the top and bottom of the card front. I took a piece of the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and wrapped it around the seam of the Window Sheet and DSP and tied it in a bow at the left. In the video I struggled with that part (go figure!) and just tied it in a faux bow. I then die cut several of the flowers from the DSP and layered two of the them on the front. I added a little bit of Stampin’ Seal to the edge of the flowers and tucked them right at the ribbon. I added two of the new Glossy Dots in coordinating colors for my bling.
For the inside, I set my inside layer within the card to judge where to stamp my sentiment, and then stamped it in Gorgeous Grape ink. Then I stamped the other sentiment at the bottom so it would hide behind the bottom layer. I then stamped the flower in Coastal Cabana right on the corner and attached it to the inside of the card.
For the envelope I stamped the same flower in gorgeous Grape on the flap. I die cut the flower image with a scrap of Thick Basic White to create a mask and placed it over the flower and stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. By masking it gives the look of the leaves sitting behind the flower. I love it!
