July DSP Special!






The Petal Promenade DSP is one of my favorites in the new catalog!  I love cottage roses so this paper speaks to my heart.  The real beauty is that the paper doesn't need a lot to make a special card!  These cards came together quickly and they are quite stunning if I do say so myself!

Wishing You All The Best

Cut List:
Base - Petal Pink 5 1/2" x 8", scored at 3 3/4" to leave a 1/2" on back of card
Petal Promenade DSP - 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Strip of Soft Seafoam CS 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Scalloped Border Strip from Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP

Stamping/Inking/Coloring:
The sentiment "Wishing You All The Best" is from the new Blended Seasons stamp set available in August.  It is stamped in Petal Pink on a laser cut label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

Assembly:
Using Tombo glue the detailed scallop border to the edge of the card front.  Next, glue the Petal Promenade DSP to the card front. Thread the Soft Seafoam strip through the laser cut label.  It is hard to tell in the photo, but the label is arched slightly and has a double layer of dimensionals in the center and single layer on either side of the double layer.  This will help keep the arched shape.  Center the label on the Soft Seafoam strip and use Tombo or snail to adhere to the card base, but only at the edges.  Next, trim out the center of a Pearlized Doily and then arrange it under the sentiment. I preferred not to use a full circle and cut mine into two wedges.  I adhered the doily with Tombo and added an extra bit under the Soft Seafoam strip to secure it once the doily pieces were in place.

Embellishment:

I added two Artisan Pearls in Petal Pink to the label and that was all the embellishment the card needed!

Petal Promenade Gift Card

Cut List:
Base - Highland Heather 3 1/4" x 6 1/2", Scored at 3 1/4"
Petal Pink Mat - 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
Petal Promenade Rose Frame DSP - 3" x 3"

Stamping/Inking/Coloring:
Stamp the rose cluster from the Petal Palette stamp set in Highland Heather and again in Mossy Meadow.  Using an aqua painter, pull out the color from the border of the stamped image.  Stamp the "For You" image from the Blended Seasons stamp set in the lower left side of the frame.

Assembly:
Adhere the Petal Promenade Frame to the Petal Pink Mat and then adhere this to the card base. Trim out the roses and leaves.  Arrange the roses in the upper right edge of the floral frame and pop them up on dimensionals.  Glue the leaves directly to to the base tucked under the roses.

Embellishment:
I added three Artisan Pearls in Petal Pink to finish off this gift card!
