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. Run the 5 ½” h x 4 ¼” w Basic White panel through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the Dots and Spots Die. Then place it on a piece of scrap paper. 
  4. Dab a spare acrylic block onto the Balmy Blue stamp pad to lift off some ink. In a circular motion run a Blending Brush over the ink on the block. 
  5. Hold the panel firmly on the scrap paper and starting on the scrap paper, in a circular motion with the Blending Brush, apply ink to the paper and panel. Repeat as needed until you’ve achieved the desired color saturation on the panel. 
  6. Then adhere the panel to the Card Base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Die cut two Cloud strips from Basic White cardstock with the Basic Borders Dies and attach to bottom with Stampin’ Seal. 
  8. Die cut three Balloons from the DSP and attach to inked Dots and Spots panel – two with Stampin’ Seal and one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  9. Stamp three baskets in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. Attach a small bit of Adhesive Sheets behind two of the baskets and then die cut and attach. Attach the third basket with a bit of Stampin’ Dimensional to the Balloon you adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink on a scrap Basic White Cardstock. Trim to size and attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  11. Create a junk bow with ribbon and twine. 
  12. Sprinkle on Rainbow Adhesive-Backed Dots.
  13. Stamp and decorate the inside
  14. Decorate your envelope.
  15. So uplifting! Who needs a pick-me-up? Send it.
