This card is another example of how easy it can be to make a quick card -- if you let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for you.
The small swatch of DSP in the center of this card is just so lovely and fresh,
I wanted it to be the star of the card.
Adding just a few touches, such as a bit of stamping, a baker's twine bow,
a diecut sentiment and the matching rhinestone to dot the "i" was all it took.
There is not very much dimension to this card: just the bit the bow adds, the slight rise of the rhinestone and the Stampin' Dimensionals that raise the snippet of DSP, and the rest is flat as a pancake!
The stamps and Designer Series Paper are two of the freebie offerings that are part of Sale-A-Bration, which ends tomorrow, February 28! So HURRY!
Even though the card is fairly straightforward, following is a list of supplies and the directions.
Pacific Point cardstock
Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper (Page 14, Sale-A-Bration brochure)
Berry Blessings stamp set (Page 14, Sale-A-Bration brochure)
Pacific Point ink
Die cutting/embossing machine
Smile die or another small sentiment that you have
Noble Peacock Rhinestone (or you can use a Stampin' Blend to color a Basic Rhinestone)
Mini Glue Dot
Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Pacific Point cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Using the outline stamp of the blueberries, stamp these in black all around the edges of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock. Use the solid blueberry stamp, and matching it up to the black outlines, stamp the blueberries in Pacific Point ink.
Adhere this piece to the blue card base.
Cut a piece of the blueberry Designer Series Paper to 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". Adhere it with Stampin' Dimensionals to the center of the card.
With a small "smile" die, or sentiment of your choice, cut it from black cardstock.
Adhere the sentiment to the lower right corner of the DSP piece.
Dot the "i" with a Pacific Point rhinestone. If you don't have one, you can color a clear Basic Rhinestone with a Stampin' Blend to match your card.
Tie a striped piece of blue/white baker's twine in a small bow. Adhere it with a glue dot to the upper left corner of the DSP.
If you didn't get the chance to snap up this freebie during Sale-A-Bration, there are several stamp sets and Designer Series Papers in the Stampin' Up! catalogs that you can substitute to get the same look for a card.
