Today's 5 Minute Monday Tutorial is a quick & easy layout using the large flower die from the Artistic Dies.
Placing the die on a 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic White cardstock as close to the top and both sides as possible, leaving the bottom section with an open space for stamping a sentiment.
This is the trickiest part of the card - after removing the die cut flower from the cardstock, place the negative section in your trimmer on the longest side and cut at 2 3/4.
Stamp this bottom section of the negative die cut with a chosen sentiment.
I used "Thank you" from the Go To Greetings stamp set.
I love this greeting set, and I'm happy to say it will be returning in the new Stampin' Up catalogue set to release on May 4th, 2023.
Wrap a piece of ribbon around the negative section stamped piece and tie a bow.
For a background on the card front, which by the way was a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 -
Scored @4 1/4, I chose the backside of Hello Irresistible designer paper cut at 4 x 5 1/4.
Attach this layer of DSP to the front of the card base.
Now that the negative section of Basic White cardstock is stamped with a greeting and decorated with a bow, attach it to the bottom of the card front using glue or tape seal.
Apply small dabs of glue to the back of the flower die cut and fit into place on the card front.
Suddenly you have a beautiful card front.
On a layer of 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White cardstock stamp any desired sentiment for the inside and attach to the card inside.
Decorate a coordinating envelope.
Here is the same card only using By the Bay designer series paper and some Pool Party Sheer Ribbon (this ribbon is beautiful and currently reduced in the Last Chance sale.
Both of the designer series papers used for today's card are retiring and are available in the Last Chance Product Sale happening now while supplies last.
The "Happy Birthday" greeting was from Artistically Inked stamp set. I am pretty sure this stamp set and dies will be included in the new catalogue.
I could be wrong... I have been known to be before a time or 2... 😂
