Today, I created a soft and elegant card with the Stampin' Up! Lovely You Stamp Set. Who says beautiful cards have to take long to make? Believe it or not, his was very quick and easy to make -- easy enough to make several at one time. Batching is a great thing -- you always have a ready-made card on hand.

Die cut the decorative circle from Basic White cardstock
Die cut the sentiment layer from Fresh Freesia cardstock
On Layer #2 Basic White, stamp the floral and leaf images from the Lovely You stamp set; stamp all images from the center of the right corner of the Basic White cardstock in the area where the circle die cut will be placed
Adhere the circular die cut to Layer #2 (the stamped layer), overlapping the die off the right edge of the cardstock with liquid glue; trim the overlapping pieces from the side
Adhere Layer #2 to the top of Layer #2 DSP
Adhere the layers to the cardbase
Stamp the sentiment on the Fresh Freesia die cut cardstock with VersaMark ink; if you have an anti-static pouch or tool, apply the powder before stamping the sentiment to the cardstock
Cover the sentiment in white embossing powder and melt with the heat tool
Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals
Make a bow with the Fresh Freesia Open Weave ribbon and adhere to the card with Mini Glue Dots

I offer live card classes open to everyone globally. If you're in the US, there are options for class kits to go, with prepared, precut project materials, PDF tutorials, live class via Zoom, with an additional $15 in Stampin' Up! products at no additional chage -- all with free shipping.

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!
I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
