At a recent Stamp-In workshop, my girls made the following card as one of their projects.

Not a very difficult card to make, it is just simply fun.The only stamps used on it come from the Picture Perfect set, which can be found on page 76 of the Annual Catalog.

Balmy Blue ribbon, one of the free goodies for Sale-A-Bration, which runs through March, and the nifty Stitched Shapes Framelits (page 220, Annual Catalog) are all the extras that are needed.

It takes a little white to stamp all the bows, but other than that, a quick and easy card to put together!

If you keep reading, I will share the Supplies List and Tutorial for how to make this card.

Balmy Blue cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Grid Paper

Picture Perfect stamp set (page 76, Annual Catalog)

Balmy Blue ink

Big Shot
Stitched Shapes Framelits (page 220, Annual Catalog)
Balmy Blue Ribbon (page 7 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure)
Stampin' Dimensionals

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Balmy Blue cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

Take a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of grid paper with the grids printed in blue on white. In Balmy Blue ink, starting in the center, stamp the bows, turning the stamp with each impression so the bows are looking a bit haphazard. Don't do any overlapping. Glue this to the card base.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink. Cut it out with the proper sized oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Turn the oval over and add a few strips of Snail Adhesive. Run a length of the Balmy Blue ribbon back and forth, catching the ribbon on the adhesive with each pass, so you have two loops on each side of the oval.

Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of this oval and add it to the card, raised up a bit from the center point.



  1. That is beautiful! Blue is one of my favorite colors. Pinned.

  2. This is a pretty card, I was looking at it thinking 'what bows?' as I thought they were a stylised rose at first but now I look again I can see they are big present bows - how sweet.

    1. Thanks, Julie! I thought the bows looked so darling and perky -- and, yes, somewhat rose-like!

  3. Is the grid paper a SU! product? Or just grid paper from an office supply store? I love the card but wasn't sure where to find the grid paper. Thanks!

    1. Unfortunately, it is not Stampin' Up! It's paper I've had for a long time that came on a small tablet. I know you can find grid paper at office supply stores. I am so glad you like the card!
