Right now, during Sale-a-Bration, until the end of March, is a great time to join Stampin' Up. If your wish list contains $100 worth of product (and whose doesn't?!), you should just go ahead and join. Here's why. For that $100, you'll be able to choose $125 in! product--an extra $26. Plus, during SAB you can choose TWO stamp sets (excluding SAB items or bundles) from the catalog--at any price point! That sounds like a real bargain to me! If it does to you, too, contact me and I can help you get started!!
Today's card is made withe the "Special Reason" stamp set and coordinating Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. These two items come in a bundle, which, if you purchase together save you 10% over purchasing them separately. We started with a 2-3/4" by 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White Card Stock and ran it through the Big Shot with one of the Stylish Stems Framelits--leaving the outline of a flower. We adhered a piece of Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper to the back so that the colors from the DSP peek through. We tied on a length of Calypso Coral Thick Bakers Twine.
Next, we embossed a 5-1/8" by 3-7/8" piece of Calypso Coral Card Stock with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. We used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere this to a Calypso Coral card base, cut lengthwise. We adhered the flower element to the card with Stampin' Dimensional, too.
Finally, we stamped a sentiment from the "Special Reason" stamp set in Calypso Coral onto a piece of Peekaboo Peach Card Stock and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I adhered this to the card with, you guessed it, Stampin' Dimensionals!
