So isn't this a great card? Here's my secret--I used Project Life cards...you
remember that Project Life by Stampin'Up! is the memory keeping system that uses these awesome pocketed pages with the pre-printed cards you can slip in next to your pics and complete your album in no time.
So today I saw the unopened box on my shelf and had to peek inside to see what was in there....here's the PL Hello Lovely Card Collection and the accessory kit. The accessory pack comes with a small stamp set too!
Here's a pic of the large cards--you also get small and square cards....you can't really get a good look but you get the idea--there are 100 cards in the kit plus tons of goodies in the accessory pack--and it all fits in this wonderful divided box:
So here's how I created my 5 minute (but looks like a million bucks) card--see the supply list following the directions to purchase your supplies to create this little beauty:
1. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 4 1/4 (cardbase)
2. Find the 4 X 6 PL card with the dogwood pattern and cut it to 5 1/5 X 2 (you will have enough from this one card to create 2 greeting cards plus a small piece to use as decoration for another card or tag. Adhere this to the bottom front of the card using multipurpose liquid glue.
3. Stamp the Thank You (substitute any greeting you need) (from One Big Meaning stamp set) in Expresso Classic Ink above the designer paper.
4. Cut a 6 1/2" piece of Delightful Dijon mini-striped ribbon and adhere to the top of the designer paper (card) using Tear & Tape (#138995)--the ribbon will wrap around the sides of the front.
5. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 4 X 5 1/4 and adhere this to the underside of the card front to hide the ribbon ends.
Now I thought I was finished but I was looking at the accessory pack and found these 2 wooden leaf stems that just matched the leaves in the designer card--so, take 2 of those and adhere them on either side of the greeting using liquid glue...now our card is completed!
Isn't it awesome? Try it, send me a pic of your creation!
