Dainty Delight, Artistically Inked, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!


Hello! I'm glad you found your way here to see today's card I made to share with you. It's a fun card with lots of fun pieces. I saw a card on Pinterest and I thought I'd give it a try with what I have and guessing at the measurements. Please read on to see how it was made.

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

I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock, one for the inside and one for the outside. On the outside piece I added some dots by flicking my Crumb Cake and Balmy Blue markers onto the paper, one at a time. I don't think you can do it with both at the same time!

Then I taped that to the outside of the card and I taped the other Basic White piece to the inside.

Next I cut some Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Country Floral Lane" 12" x 12" package from the spring mini catalog. Those two pieces measure 1" x 2-1/2" each. 

I had a piece of Basic White card stock that was textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. It was just sitting on my worktable so I cut it to measure 2-1/4" x 3". I taped the DSP to this piece. The DSP is about 1/4" on the bottom and 3/8" on the side. Flip it over and repeat for the other side. Then the piece was taped in place on top of the card front. 

A Basic White ring was made using two circle dies at the same time. I would have liked it a bit thinner but it is what it is. I kept the center, that is where the words were stamped. Though I thought it might have been easier to stamp the words and then set up the two circle dies, but I always manage to do things the hard way!  LOL

The "hello" is from the "Artistically Inked" set and was stamped using Crumb Cake ink. 

The little flowers were die cut using Blushing Bride card stock scrap and the die from the "Dainty Delight" bundle.  The daisy is also from the same die set. I die cut two and glued the two pieces together. 

The little leaves are from the same "Dainty Delight" bundle and were die cut using Old Olive card stock scraps. The leaves come two in a set so I was able to cut the four at one time. 

The flowers bundle is from the "Dainty Delight" set and was stamped using black Memento ink. Then colored in using the Balmy Blue marker. 

To assemble the rest of the card, I glued the ring in place first. Then the word piece was added next using Dimensionals. The blue flower piece was set in place using Dimensionals.

The little pink flowers were added with a small Dimensional each with the leaf being tucked under the Dimensional.

Then the Daisy was set in place with a Dimensional and the leaves were glued to the back of the petals.

I colored some crystal rhinestones using my dark Mango Melody Blends pen and those were set in place on the card and the card was done.

I think I would love to use this design again sometime, though I think I would raise the textured piece up on Dimensionals, it looks a bit too flat there but it's still nice and I am happy with the way it turned out. This card could be used for a number of occasions. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can make using a Christmas theme later in the year. 

Thank you ever SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship card,
