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

The "Art Gallery" is still holding first place in my 2021 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog favorite sets. I found this card on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of it is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White card stock that was textured using the "Old World Paper" embossing folder. 

I taped three strips of white ribbon onto the front of the textured piece. I taped them to the back of the piece. Then I glued the piece in place on top of the card base.

The flowers are from the "Art Gallery" set and were stamped using Balmy Blue and Highland Heather. They each were inked up and stamped off once. Then I stamped the detailed image using Balmy Blue and Highland Heather ink (without stamping off). 

The leaves were stamped using Night of Navy ink. It appears that my Night of Navy ink is a bit more navy looking than the leaves on the original card. Two sets of leaves were stamped because you need an extra leaf . I die cut the leaves and the flowers at the same time.

The words are from the same set and I stamped them on Highland Heather card stock using Highland Heather ink. I die cut them with the adorable die in the bundle.

I set the Highland Heather flower down first. Then the Balmy Blue one but only add Dimensionals to the left side and snail tape was added to the right side.

The leaves with the stem were set in place with Dimenisonals.  Again take special notice to where the leaves touch the flowers so you can avoid a Dimensional there.  And the single leaf was taped in place with one Dimensional in the middle.

The words were set in place with tape and Dimenisonals.  Just pay attention to where the Dimensionals need to be placed.

I colored some rhinestones using my dark Balmy Blue Blends pen and after sitting for a few minutes to dry, I set then in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.  

I really like the way this card turned out. But I think if I were to make it again I would use Old Olive or Granny Apple Green for the leaves, the Night of Navy isn't doing it for me. Other than that I like the color combo and the layout.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by today and take a look at what I did today,
