Seniors Love Crafting

Seniors love crafting and since I go to the assisted living home once a month, I decided I would post the card we are making for the month of July.  They like " a little on the fancy side" cards but with their dexterity, I try to make it as simple as I can.  Here's what I came up with :

  • Used the blossom punch and cut down slits on each petal following the indentations of each petal.  Used the bone folder to curl the separated petals slightly to give them more dimension.
  • Card base = 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in Whisper White Cardstock
  • Green Liner (Mint Macaron) = 4 x 5 1/4
  • White Small Mat = 4 1/4 x 2 1/2
  • Dotted Macaron DSP = 2 1/4 x 4 ( from the 2015 -2017 Designer Series Paper Stack)
  • Green Strip(Mint Macaron) = 1 1/4 x 4
  • Whisper White Strip = 1 x 3 3/4
  • "Best Thoughts" stamp set for the front card sentiment stamped in black ink
  • "Me = Grateful" stamp set for the inside sentiment stamped in Mint Macaron
  • Petite Petals punch for the two small flowers on the card face
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the small flower accents.
  • Buttons from Sale A Bration
  • Whisper White Baker's Twine for the bow
Here are the Stampin Up Products I used to make this card.  You are welcome to order any of the products you may need from my store...hope you like the card and happy stamping..
