Today I’m sharing one of the examples I made for the day I spent with the Stamp or Dye group. You can see my post about our gathering here. I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set for the flowers & leaves of the wreath, and the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set for the sentiment, which I cut using the Classic Label Punch.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Lovely Lipstick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Call Me Clover CS cut to 3″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4 for the inside of the card

Die cut using the Layering Squares Framelits:

  • one square (appr. 2-7/8″) from a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • second square, next size up, from a scrap of Call Me Clover CS
  • third square, next size up from the second one, from a scrap of Whisper White CS

Stamped using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set:

  • See how to stamp the wreath with a Stamparatus here.
  • flowers in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the smaller Whisper White CS die cut square
  • leaves in Call Me Clover ink between the flowers

Stamped using the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • sentiment glued onto the Call Me Clover CS strip, then trimmed the ends using Paper Snips
  • sentiment strips adhered onto the wreath layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • wreath layer glued onto the Call Me Clover die cut layer
  • Call Me Clover square glued onto the larger Whisper White die cut layer
  • whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon adhered to the front of the card base using Tear & Tape
  • larger Whisper White Die cut layer glued over the ribbon
  • 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
