Framed For You, Thinking of You Card, 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

My card today was a very fun one to make, even with the fussy cutting!  It's a quick and simple one too.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Poppy Parade. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Bumblebee card stock was taped on to the front of the card.  

The Whisper White piece was cut 3-3/4" x 5" and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Flowers for Every Season" was cut at 3-1/2" x 4-3/4".  Then the DSP was cut at an angle. The right side measures 1-5/8" and the left side measures 3-1/2" 

I took another piece of DSP from the "Flowers for Every Season" DSP pack and I cut it at 2" x 3".  I punched one end using the "Triple Banner" punch. I taped the punched piece to the back of the larger DSP piece. 

The ribbon I used is retired but I thought I would just use what I had. You can also cut a strip of card stock here too.  I just thought the ribbon would look nice and I got to use some ribbon I've been hanging onto for a while.  Is it hanging onto or hoarding???  Let's say hanging onto because hoarding is a tough thing to admit! LOL  I taped the ribbon ends on the back of the DSP.

I set the DSP on top of the Whisper White piece so I could see where the words needed to go.  Since the card was SO cheery looking I opted to use Poppy Parade ink instead of my usual black Memento.  It kept the card looking bright and cheery. The words are from the "Framed for You" set. 

After stamping the words I taped the DSP to the piece and then I taped that piece to the front of the card on top of the Bumblebee card stock.

The flower from the "Framed for You" set was stamped using Daffodil Delight ink and then fussy cut out.  That was the only part of the card I wasn't having a lot of fun doing. It's such a small flower but I managed to do it without whining!  

I used the second smallest circle punch and punched out a Whisper White piece.  I also took the scalloped circle that best fit the circle I just cut out and die cut it using Poppy Parade card stock. 

The "Framed for You" set also has some cute leaves, so I stamped them on the Whisper White circle using Mint Macaron ink. I stamped several leaves.

Then the circled were taped together, the fussy cut flower was set on top using a Dimensional. 

The circle was set in place using Dimensionals.  A pearl was added to the center of the flower.  A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was added to the inside of the card and that was it.

I really like the looks of this card. It should brighten up someone's day.

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