Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!
Each month I make & send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. I created this month’s card with the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP. You can find the measurements and supply list for this card at the bottom of this post.
Start with a Pool Party cs card base. Cut a Basic White cs panel and a Fine Art Floral DSP panel. Dry emboss the card base front and the Basic White cs panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Use the Stitched With Whimsy dies to add a stitched textured frame to the Fine Art Floral DSP panel. Wrap the Fine Art Floral DSP panel with a Pool Party Sheer Ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panel. Glue the wrapped panel to the embossed Basic White cs panel and then to the embossed card base front.
Cut a Basic White cs sentiment panel and Pool Party cs sentiment layer panel. Use the Stitched With Whimsy dies to add a stitched textured frame to the Pool Party cs sentiment layer panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Here’s A Card stamp set in Memento Black ink on the Basic White cs panel. Glue the Pool Party cs sentiment layer panel to the center of the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Add the Basic White cs sentiment panel to the center of the Pool Party cs sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Tie a small bow with the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon and use glue dots to add it to the card front on the left side of the sentiment layers overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Add Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Here’s a Card stamp set in Memento Black ink. I also added a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Fine Art Floral DSP Thanks card.
