Today’s card was made by the lovely and very talented Debbie Catlett, of Chattanooga, TN. Debbie is a member of my Candy Hearts team. This was a card she made for this month’s Creative Challenge at our March team gathering. She used the Lot of Lavender stamp set (available free with a $50 order only through Saturday!) and a piece of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper to create this beautiful card. Debbie always adds a little something to the inside of the card as well.

 

Here’s what she made:

Here’s what she did:

Cut and scored with her Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Rich Razzleberry card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Sweet Sugarplum CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)
  • Petal Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3″ x 5-1/4

Stamped with the Lots of Lavender stamp set:

  • bouquet in Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • small flower with leaves in Basic Black ink onto the Sweet Sugarplum CS for the inside of the card

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • sentiment with a plain oval die
  • a scrap of Rich Razzleberry CS with a slightly larger scalloped oval die

Colored using Blender Pens:

  • bouquet in Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, and Lemon Lime Twist

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS glued onto the inside of the card base
  • plain Sweet Sugarplum CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP layer glued onto the Sweet Sugarplum CS layer
  • plain oval glued onto the scalloped oval
  • doily glued onto the back of the scalloped oval so it shows on one side
  • doily/oval glued onto the DSP layer (She used a retired doily. If you don’t have any of those, I recommend using the Delicate White Doilies.)
  • small bow tied with a double piece of Linen Thread, and adhered to the bouquet with a Mini Glue Dot
