Cased from Sara

June 6, 2017

I bought the Lovely Friends stamp set and the co-ordinating Lovely laurel Thinlits in my pre-order and when getting ready for my catalogue launch I was a little stumped for a card.  Sooo, I watched the video from Onstage Live in which Sara (CEO Stampin’ Up!) demonstrated how the stamps and Thinlits worked. (This is a resource only available to demonstrators at the moment.)  Anyway her card was so pretty I couldn’t go past CASing it exactly as she had made it.

I stamped the good friends greeting from the Lovely Friends stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  Did you know that Night of Navy can be considered a neutral? – it works so well with so many colours.  Anyway after that I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set around the greeting using Always Arthichoke ink.  I stamped the large flower detail stamp onto Pink Pirouette card using Rose Red ink and then cut them out using the co-ordinating Lovely Laurel Thinlits Die.  The flowers are attached to the stamped card using dimensionals.  I added a large Basic Pearl to the centre of the flower.  I attached the stamped card to scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card using dimensionals because I wanted the stamped panel to stand out from the card base a little.

The fun part comes on the inside.  I cut out the two pieces to create the garland from Always Artichoke card.  You add Tear and Tape adhesive on the little flaps on the end of each piece.  You need to make sure that the adhesive is on the “right” side of the card so that it will attach correctly.  Fold along the score line so that the flap sits to the back, with the pieces intersected and lying on top of each other, right sides together, place the edge of the flap against the score line.  Attach the bottom piece and close the card to attach the top piece.  Open the card and you will see the garland pop up.  To create the banner, you need to cut two of the pieces with the banner shape and one for the centre of the banner.  I cut my pieces from Soft Sky card.  You need to add Tear and Tape to the flap on the end of each of the banner pieces making sure that you add it to the “right” side of your card.  Intersect the pieces and lay them flat, with the flaps folded to the back and with the small gap in the centre of the two flaps lying over the centre fold of your card, attach it to the card base.  Stamp the second half of the greeting onto the centre piece of the banner using Night of Navy ink.  I added Tear and Tape to the back of the ends of the centre of the banner and attached it over the centre of the banner pieces already attached to the card.  Make sure that you fold on the central score line, so that the greeting closes together.  Open and close your card a couple of times and it will work perfectly.

To decorate a little more (just like Sara) I stamped the small flower detail stamp onto Pink Pirouette card and cut them out using the matching Lovely Laurel Thinlits Die.  The flowers are attached to the banner using Glue Dots and a small Basic Pearl is added to the centre.

I love this card and hope that you do too.  It is so beautiful and just amazing when you open it up.  If I find a video that shows you how to do it I will share the link with you all.

Bye for now,

Kris
