Hello, Sweet Stampers! I hope you’re having a lovely day, or evening, or afternoon, or whenever you’re reading this. I’m actually writing this from my bed, because my back went out. Not to worry though. A day or two in bed with drugs will make it feel much better. So if I seem a little loopy in my typing, please forgive me. It’s the drugs. Okay, just one drug, but it’s not something I would ever want to take and try to use heavy machinery. Okay, that’s enough about my whining. Let’s get to today’s card.

Actually I made this card a while back but never got around to posting it. I liked it when I made it, then later I hated it – I think the color combo is what got me. They aren’t colors I would usually think to use together, but I was trying to work outside my comfort zone. But now I like it again. (I’d love to hear what you think. Please comment below.) And it’s sooo easy to make…if you have a Big Shot. And really, if you’re gonna make cards, why wouldn’t you have a Big Shot? I mean, it’s a pretty amazing tool and you can do so much cool stuff with it. On today’s card I used it with two dies (from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies) and the Oh My Stars embossing folder. Zip, zip, zip and you’re done! There isn’t even any stamping on this card!

Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! oh my stars tief embossing folder and lovely day word thinlit dies and the lovely inside and out stamp set by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Smoky Slate card stock (CS) cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″

Die cut using the Lovely Words Thinlits:

  • “lovely” in a heart from a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS
  • As you can see in the photo of this die set above, the dies cut out the shape from the paper, leaving the word intact. 

Die cut using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits:

  • around the “lovely” heart, to create a border, because I wanted just the thin heart border around the word. 

Dry Embossed with the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder:

  • the front of the card base

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • die cut  glued onto onto the front of the card base
  • three silver star enamel shapes applied to the front of the card base
  • See, I told you it was easy!
