Ornate Borders, Ornate Garden, Here's a Card, Birthday Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

One more card using the "Ornate Borders" dies and "Ornate Garden" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I had received 6 pieces of the DSP cut 4" x 6".  All different too!  So I plan on making at least 6 cards with it.  The one I made today could make two identical cards if you just cut the DSP in half.  You can see the original card here with a few changes to fit what I have on hand.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Old Olive card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock.

I stamped the words from the "Here's a Card" set on a 2" x 3-3/4" piece of Calypso Coral card stock using Early Espresso ink.  

I die cut an Old Olive border using the "Ornate Borders" die.  I left about 3/4" on the edge before cutting.  I needed to have something to tape to the back of the DSP.  After cutting I just used snail tape to tape the border to the back of the DSP piece.  The DSP was cut 2" x 5".  

I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of copier paper (you can use Whisper White card stock if you like).  I taped Calypso Coral piece to the copier paper, making sure the edges all lined up. If they don't, just trim away any copier paper that shows.  Then I taped the DSP to the copier paper.  

I took a piece of Old Olive ribbon and taped the ends on the backside. I used scotch tape to hold them down.  Then I taped the whole piece to the Early Espresso piece and the Early Espresso piece was taped to the front of the card base.

I slipped a piece of ribbon (still on the spool) under the taped ribbon and tied a knot. Then I cut the ribbon from the spool. I had also added a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place.  And about 2" over on the ribbon I added another glue dot to hold the ribbon in place.

I took some vellum and die cut 2 flowers using the cute little flower dies in the "Ornate Borders" dies.  I glued them in place, setting one on top of the other but offsetting it.  I colored a pearl using my darkdMango Melody Blends pen.  It is set it in the center of the flower.

And for the final touch, a few sequins were added to the top part of the card.  I think they were gold on the original card but I couldn't find mine.  If you saw my work area you'd be amazed that I can find anything. 

So now that my card is done I will be cleaning off my worktable and see what is under all the papers and stuff sitting here.  Maybe!!  I say maybe because the dryer just buzzed.  Too many things going on.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit today,
