Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great and safe weekend. Saturday was my first virtual team meeting on zoom and it turned out great! So happy to see their smiling faces. I think this has been the hardest part of the whole shelter-in-place thing, not being able to craft with my girlfriends! Which leads me today’s card. I am so grateful for them and for all of you! We don’t realize how much others in our lives mean to us until something like this happens.
Here are the measurements for the card, which was created with all scraps!! Yep, all of it was leftover from other projects!
- Card base in Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Ornate Garden Specialty DSP cut at 2 1/2″ x 4″
As I mentioned, I had all of these pieces sitting on my table and just went with it! I glued the DSP to the Mint Macaron layer and then both tot he card front. The label was part of the card base leftovers, so I grabbed my Mint Macaron ink and stamped just a portion of the large flower image from the Ornate Style stamp set, stamping off first. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Early Espresso. The “for you” isn’t one of the sentiments, but part of the “for all you do” stamp, so I did some masking for this sentiment. I used tape to cover the “all you do”, inked it in the Early Espresso, removed the tape and stamped the word. I repeated the process for the “you”. I think it turned out perfectly!! Masking helps create so many more sentiments out of our stamps!! Then I just added some of those gorgeous gems.
For the inside, I repeated the large image, stamping off first in Mint Macaron and the sentiment in Early Espresso. I absolutely love this look in stamping!
Isn’t this a great way to use up those leftovers? Here’s a look at what the original card looked like:
It was from last month’s stamp club. It’s amazing what you can do with leftovers!! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great start to your week and be sure to come by tomorrow for another CASE-ing Tuesday project.
