Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, emboss the 4 ⅛” x 1 ¼” piece of Basic Gray.
  4. Using the 2nd to the largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, cut the piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock.
  5. With Fresh Freesia Ink, stamp the flowers 3 times on the Basic White 3 ⅝” x 2 ½” panel.  Then using Pear Pizzazz ink stamp the larger leaves, using Soft Seafoam stamp the smaller sprig.  With Smoky Slate, stamp the small buds. 
  6. Use Stampin’ Seal to attach the embossed Basic Gray to the wood grain DSP about one third from the bottom.  
  7. Wrap a piece of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the center of the Basic Gray Embossed Piece taping the ends on the back with Tear & Tape. Attach these layers to your Basic Gray folded card front with Stampin’ Seal. 
  8. Use Stampin’ Seal to tape the stamped Basic White panel to the Smoky Slate piece of cardstock, and then to the die cut Fresh Freesia cardstock. 
  9. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the stamped layers to the card, slightly toward the right side and centered in top to bottom.
  10. Tie a bow using the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and adhere to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. 
  11. Sprinkle a few small Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
  12. Stamp and decorate the inside and attach with Stampin’ Seal.
  13. Decorate your envelope.
