Lasting Lily, Just Because, Thinking of You Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions and Sale-a-Brations Catalogs

Today's card is a perfect example of why you should keep your work area clean.  I had some card stock sitting out from another project and I didn't pay attention when I was making my card and the next think I knew I had a darker green around the flower piece.  It is what it is, I can't fix it but I'm sharing it with you so you can see what happens when you don't put your stuff away.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I layered a piece of the Highland Heather gingham card stock from the 6" x 6" paper pack.  I cut that paper 1-3/4" x 4-1/2".  I cut a 1-7/8" x 4-5/8" piece of Mint Macaron card stock for the layer.

I stamped the flower stem on a 2" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I added a flower from one of the other images in the "Lasting Lilly" set.  I stamped the flower on a piece of Whisper White card stock and using Mint Macaron ink, I stamped the bottom part of the flower.  I fussy cut the flower and set it in place using Dimensionals. I layered the flower panel on a 2-1/8" x 4-1/8" what was supposed to be Mint Macaron but it ended up being Coastal Cabana.  I can distinguish between the two colors but I was cutting my pieces as I needed them instead of cutting all at one time.  And that is how I grabbed the wrong color. I taped those two layers together and then taped them to the card front.

The words are from the "Just Because" set.  It's from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  It's the first time I've used it.  I've been so busy playing with the Sale-a-Bration sets that I have not been playing with the other ones I bought. I die cut them using the oval die and I die cut a scalloped oval and that was when I realized the card stock color issue!  I taped the ovals together and then set them in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  Now I'm off to clean up my scrap papers sitting by my paper cutter and I need to clean up my worktable so I can start another card. I want to play with the "Just Because" set!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
