{Blessed} Baptism Card CASED from Stampin Success May 2010

I copied this card from the May issue of Stampin Success, by Jolene Slack, on page 23. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post the original picture, but it was featured in the new Color Renovation section. Jolene’s sample used new Marina Mist, here, I substituted Baja Breeze, a returning In Color.

The card base is made from a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Baja Breeze, folded in half. Next, I took a 5″ square of Shades of Spring DSP in the Certainly Celery pattern and layered it on the card base.

I used the Scallop Square Bigz Die and the Big Shot to cut a scallop square from Parisian Breeze DSP (retired). I sponged Baja Breeze ink along the edges using a Sponge Dauber, then adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Using more paper from Shades of Spring DSP, I layered a 3 1/4″ square of Certainly Celery on a 3″ square of DSP, attaching it to the base with SNAIL adhesive.

The square window was made by embossing Certainly Celery card stock with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Big Shot. Then, I cut the embossed piece down to 2″ square. I punched a window in the center with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and sponged the frame with Certainly Celery ink. I stamped “Blessed” from So Very (a retired SAB set) in Baja Breeze on Whisper White, layering it behind the window. I also stamped an image from Tiny Tags in Certainly Celery ink, stamped off, randomly over the whisper white.

At the top, I added a loop of Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals and a half back sticky pearl. Finally, I adhered the window piece to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Shades of Spring Valentine

I decided to go with a slightly non traditional color scheme in making this Valentine’s Day card. For the base, I used Old Olive card stock (but Certainly Celery would also be a good choice). The pink patterned paper is from Shades of Spring DSP and the green polka dot paper is from Tall Tales DSP.

I cut the striped DSP to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the polka dotted DSP to 4″ x 3″. I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the top edge of the polka dotted paper, and the Small Heart Punch at the bottom. Then, I adhered the green DSP to the pink DSP and tied some Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around that panel.

The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Certainly Celery ink on Whisper White card stock. I punched it out with the Full Heart Punch and layered it onto Regal Rose cut out with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit using the Big Shot. That is attached to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
