Dandelion Wishes, Get Well Card, Stampin' Up!

While I was out picking some dandelions that have opened up, I thought about making a dandelion card using the "Dandelion Wishes" stamp set.  I was picking the ones that were opened because I needed them for a craft project.  Yup, you read that right. I will post it when it's done.  There's some drying out that will take time, so don't look for it to be here too soon.  I actually had to go to the neighbor's yard to get some puffy white ones.  We have a few in our yard but they are still yellow! I'm sure we will be pulling them out soon. I got what I needed and I will be starting the drying part tonight.

So, let's talk about my card. I wasn't going for quick and easy but it was!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Coastal Cabana card stock.  My piece of card stock had some shapes punched out in the center of it.  I often punch or die cut pieces from the centers of quarter sheet pieces so I can still use them as a layer. 

I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock.  

I stamped the words from a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.  The words are from the "Dandelion Wishes" set and they were stamped using black Memento ink.  I die cut them with the second smallest "Stitched Circle" die.  I also die cut a Coastal Cabana Scalloped circle for the layer.  I taped those two pieces together.

I set the circle layers on top of the Whisper White piece so I could see where I was going to stamp the dandelion image.  The image is to be stamped using Coastal Cabana but somehow I thought I was using Bermuda Bay and I stamped mine using Bermuda Bay. I bet you didn't notice the difference in color had I not told you.

After stamping, I added two small glue dots so I could get the white Baker's Twine to stick to the card.  I arranged them a little, adding a couple more glue dots.  Then I added Dimensionals to the word piece and I set it over the twine and some of the Dimensionals stuck to the twine too which will hold it down even more.

I found some round rhinestones from a Paper Pumpkin kit and I placed them on the front of the card.  You can use crystal rhinestones or sequins too.

This was a fun and easy card to make. I like how it looks even with the wrong ink color!!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
