 I created this card in response to a posting by Rachel Doohen (ISTAMPTOO.COM).  I kept going back to it and just had to make it my own.  So with a few changes, this is the card I came up with.  

Here is what I used:

  • Cinnamon Cider Card Stock
  • Bumble Bee Card Stock
  • Whisper White Card Stock, Vellum
  • Flowers & Leaves-Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz, Bumble Bee.
  • Basket- Soft Suede
  • Embellishments-Elegant Faceted Gems
  • Ink-Cinnamon Cider
  • Clear Embossing Powder
Assemble The Card AS Follows:
  1. Cinnamon Cider card stock - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Using the "stamp off" technique, stamp the leaf pattern from Tasteful Touches stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink on cardstock.
  2. Cut flowers and leaf stems from Cherry Blossoms, Forever Flourishing, and Sunflowers Dies.  I snipped the length of some of them to fit the placements.
  3. To make the basket, cut a piece of Soft Suede card stock and use the Stitched Leaves Die from the Mini Holiday Catalog to die cut and make a waffeled pattern on the card stock.  Cut into basket shape by hand.
  4. Cut rectangle from Whisper White and Bumble Bee card stock using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, third largest.  
  5. From Vellum card stock, cut the label from the Tasteful Labels dies. Stamp "just because" from the Lovely You stamp set.  Immediately apply clear embossing powder and heat.  
  6. Apply the cut out pieces and assemble the card, using dimensionals under the rectangles.  Tie ribbon around as shown.
  7. Inside, using the stamp off technique, stamp the leaf pattern again as on the front but only around the edge of Whisper White card stock that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  Adhere to the inside and the card is done.
  8. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed this card.  I would appreciate any comment.
