You can use the 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to make your card bases. The beautiful Magnolia Lane DSP is on the Retiring List (only available while supplies last) and is perfect for making lovely DSP card base cards. I love this versatile pack of Designer Series Paper and am sad to see it go. You can watch my Facebook Live replay on Facebook here and the last 3 minutes here or watch on my YouTube channel below.
Start with a 4″ X 12″ piece of Magnolia Lane DSP and score it at 5 1/2″ x 11″ (creates a 1″ flap). Die cut 2 Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Dies (2 5/8″). Die cut a Whisper White cs sentiment label with the Wild Rose dies.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals (in the corners -leaving the center clear) to attach one Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle centered on the front 1″ flap. Cut a piece of Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding ribbon (about 20″) to wrap the card and tie in a bow. Thread the ribbon under the front Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle and the card front flap. Use a Glue Dot to attach your ribbon to the top of the back of the Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle (make sure you have enough ribbon tail to tie your bow). Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the second Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle on the back of the 1″ flap and front stitched rectangle so that stitched rectangles evenly match.
Stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink on the left corner of the Whisper White cs sentiment label. Then stamp the larger bloom from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink on the right side on the sentiment label. Use Stampin’ Blends to color the flower. Add Wink of Stella to the flower center for sparkle. Use glue to add the colored sentiment label to the front Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle. Add Petal Pink Basic self-adhesive sequins to the sentiment label.
Fussy cut out a large and small flower from the Magnolia Lane DSP with your paper snips. Use glue to add your flowers to the back Mossy Meadow cs stitched rectangle and the left most inside panel.
Cut a Whisper White cs inside cs panel (3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ for a larger panel or 3 5/8″ x 5 1/4″ for a smaller panel) for the inside of your card to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia Bloom stamp set in Memento Black ink. Stamp the large flower from the Magnolia Bloom stamp set in Memento Black ink on the right side of the panel and color with the Stampin’ Blends. Add Wink of Stella to the flower center for sparkle. Use glue to add the stamped & colored panel to the inside of the card. And don’t forget to stamp the flower and sentiment on your envelope too.
I hope you enjoyed my Magnolia Lane DSP card. You can still get the Magnolia Lane DSP, Magnolia Bloom stamp set, & Basic self-adhesive Sequins in my Online Store but don’t wait too long as all three are on the Retiring List and are only available while supplies last.
