Hand-Penned, Art Gallery, Congratulations Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog, Book Technique

I made a book technique card a little over a week ago. I like this technique, it's fun and easy.  Plus it's different. I found this card on the internet. You can see the original card here.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I scored it at 3-1/4", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4". 

I taped a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hand-Penned" 12" x 12" package. And then I taped a 1" x 5-1/2" piece of Pale Papaya card stock to the left side. 

Now I actually remembered to wrap and tie the black Baker's twine around the front left side before I glued the piece closed!  I used Tombow glue to hold the left side of the card closed.

Next I stamped the flower from the "Hand-Penned" set using black Memento ink on Basic White card stock.  Then I die cut it using the matching die. Then I colored the flowers with the light Daffodil Delight Blends pen and I colored the center of the bottom flower and a bit of details using the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen. The leaves were colored in using the dark Soft Sea Foam Blends pen. Then I taped the flower in place.

The words are from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the postage stamped edge die from the "Art Gallery" bundle. When I die cut them, I made sure they were really close to the left side of the die. I didn't have the dies that were used on the original card. I also cut a 1-3/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Basic Black card stock and taped the words to it. I taped the words to the layer and I set it on top of the card to see how much I needed to trim off on the right side.  Once it was trimmed, I used Dimensionals to set it in place on the front of the card.

A few "Genial Gems" were added to the card and it was done. 

This was a quick and easy card to make. I do prefer a bit more colorful background but it's still nice.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and seeing today's congratulations card,
