Today I want to show you how easy a few card techniques can be used to make a very pretty Stampin’ Up! card!
First I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock as my base.
Next I took a piece of Crumb Cake ( 1/4′ smaller by length and width of the base) and stamped, in Early Expresso ink, the words “Thank You Kindly” from the Hanging Garden stamp set.
NEXT –magic with the Subtles Embossing Folder!I ( one of MY NEW FAVORITES!)
Take a look at the ‘subtle’ yet textured look of that layer.
Can you see the fine lines? Makes me think of fine wale corduroy.
Next I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and used the Layering Squares Framelits, with my Big Shot, cut 3 squares.
Then I took a piece of the Frosted Floral DSP ( LOVE the colors and the fine shimmer!!!) and made 3 smaller squares.
Of course I used Snail to adhere all 3 pieces of DSP to the card stock.
Then I arranged the squares on the embossed layer.
To add just a bit of interest, I used 3 enamel shapes in the lower right hand corner.
There you have it…3 easy techniques:
1. Using the Subtles Embossing Folder
2. Using the Layering Squares Framelits
3. Adding a few embellishments.
Three simple ways to make a card –make it YOUR own and send it with love!
You could make a boxed set of these for a gift!
