Ahhhhhh, it is Friday at last!! This week has felt like it has gone on forever. Maybe because I have been so busy during the day and most of my posts this week have been posted so late in the evening. That makes for a long day when I do not get out of my office until after 10pm. Yesterday I caught up on most of my letter writing. I mailed out 15 letters/cards! This is a lot of Smiles for one day 🙂
Today’s card was inspired by Stamp Your Art Out with Rachel. I loved this card while I was poking around on Pinterest. My version is not exactly like hers, but pretty close. I used the Berry Blessings Sale-A-Bration set and the Berry Delightful DSP that retires Sunday (02/28/21).
The Night of Navy card base measures 8-1/2″x5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″.
Now, Rachel had a perfect fold down of the corner of the card base so that it matted the bottom of the blueberry square. Yeah, I didn’t because I just did a random fold. That’s OK, because it still came out cute. Since I was being lazy, I also did not trim the plaid paper to cut out the extra corner so my fold wouldn’t be so bulky. That’s OK too because it was not as bulky as I thought it might be. See, these are the things you realize you can modify when you CASE someone else’s work. It does not have to be exact. CASE-ing mainly helps you try new things as you discover the art of card making.
The plaid card front measures 4″x5-1/4″ as does the white inside panel of the card. Glue it down before making the fold.
Using a ruler and a stylus, or a scoring board, make a diagonal line on the front of the card. I would make sure the card base is laid open so you don’t get a score line on the inside of your card. Next, fold down the edge like shown in the picture and burnish with a bone folder or your finger nail so it gives it a nice crease. Add a bit of adhesive on the underside of the fold to keep it from popping up.
The blueberry DSP square measures 3″x3″ and the Pacific Point mat measures 3-1/4″x3-1/4″.
Next, glue the blueberry DSP to the Pacific Point mat.
Center it on your card and make note where the fold line is on the card base. Make sure you do not put adhesive on all four sides of the square piece or it will glue your card shut! (Ask me how I know!! LOL)
For the sentiment band, the strip of Night of Navy measures 4-1/4″x1″. Adhere the band to the card front.
Using Night of Navy, I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and punched it out using the Double Oval Punch. With the same punch, I punched out the mat in Pacific Point. Glue the two ovals together and add dimensionals to the back to tack down to the card. I also added some rhinestone bling on either side of the ovals.
Before saying the card is complete, add a bit of Wink of Stella to the darker areas of the berries. True to form, my camera did not pick up much of the sparkle of the Wink of Stella. You can see it a bit on these two berries that I circled.
And, just in case you forgot what it looked like, here is the complete picture of the card 🙂
