Art Gallery, Thinking of You Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog

I don't know what it was about this card but when I saw it I knew I just had to make it. It also helps that I had most of the stuff to make it too! You can see the original card here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Petal Pink card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

Then a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock was cut for the first layer. Before taping it in place on top of the card base, I die cut the largest "Stitched Nested Labels" die. No point in wasting all that white you are covering up.  

A 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Fine Art Floral" 12" x 12" package. I taped that on top of the Whisper White piece.  Then I taped the "Stitched Nested Labels" piece to the front of the card, centering it as much as possible.

I stamped the flower from the "Art Gallery" set using Flirty Flamingo ink. Then I stamped the highlights using Flirty Flamingo ink but I stamped that image twice to make sure it was nice and dark. I set it up in my Stamparatus to make sure I could stamp it more than once if necessary.  I use the Stamparatus most of the time for my stamping.  Even for the words for this card which came from the same set. I used black Memento ink for the words.  Then they were die cut with the rectangle die from the bundle. I cut them out the same time as the flower.

The smaller flowers were stamped using Petal Pink ink. I die cut them and then trimmed off the leaves.

The smaller flowers were stamped again using Old Olive ink and the flowers were removed.

And there's a stem and leaves in the set that go with the large flower. That was stamped using Old Olive ink. 

Once all the pieces were die cut they were ready to assemble.

I added Dimensionals to the larger flower and set it in place on the stitched white piece.  Then the stem and leaf piece was taped in place (no Dimensionals used there).  

The smaller flowers were set in place using tape on the top part of the two flowers and Dimensionals in the rest of the areas. Then that piece was set in place. 

Tape was added to the smaller stem and leaf part and was set in place by slipping it under the Petal Pink flowers.

The words were added using Dimensionals and a 4" x 5-1/4"piece of white card stock was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was a very fun card to make and I like how the DSP was used here because it was a piece I wasn't sure how I was going to use.  It's such a pretty card and I'm glad I happened to come across it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time today to stop by and check out what I've been up to,    Wanda

I, too, love this card, Wanda. It is easy to make, beautiful, and versatile. With the change of the sentiment, it can be for lots of different occasions. Enjoy your day!
