Elements of Style with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake (Delicious!!!)

Oh, do I just love this set!!! For many of you, and you can see by my blog banner and background, that I love roses!!!! And like the vintage, earthy type of colors. 

Did I mention this new Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder is also now a favorite?  Well, it is. I really enjoy Stampin' Up!'s collection of Textured Impressions Folders. They add a beautiful textured background to any card!

Okay, so this card is created using the following Stampin' Up! products:
  • Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso card stock
  • Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware
  • Designer Label Punch
  • Scallop Trim Border Punch
  • Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder
  • Elements of Style Stamp Set
  • Wide Satin Chocolate Chip ribbon
  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Blender Pen
  • Sponge
  • Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spriz

And here is how you make it:
  1. Cut standard card in Very Vanilla
  2. 4 x 5-1/4 inch piece of Early Espresso and use the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder.
  3. 3-3/4 x 3-1-2 Crumb Cake paper (use Scallop Trim on edges as shown).
  4. Stamp with Crumb Cake ink and Floral from Elements of Style.
  5. Focal Panel - Stamp with Crumb Cake and floral stamp, then a few areas with the darker, Early Espresso ink.
  6. Then color the darker outlined images with color pencils or inks using a Blender Pen.
  7. Stamp greeting on scrap Crumb Cake.
  8. Now to assemble....first wrap ribbon around Crumb Cake scalloped paper (use adhesive to hold it in place).
  9. Next, adhere the focal layer on top of that.
  10. Next lay the hardware down and mark where to punch the holes.
  11. Then punch out greeting with Designer Label Punch and adhere label to Crumb Cake piece.
  12. Now punch hole on the left, thru the focal panel. Then adhere what you have so far, to the Square Lattice card front piece.  Then punch the 2nd hole, on the right, thru that textured piece.
  13. Then adhere to the Very Vanilla card front.  
  14. Lastly, using a sponge, sponge the edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake in other areas.
Sound confusing? It's just a matter or where to punch the holes for the greeting (Designer Label), and that depends on where you want to place the greeting.

Happy Stamping!
