Stampin’ Up! Better Together For a Friend

I used the Stampin’ Up! Better Together stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to create the card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari


The inspiration for my design is from the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #235  challenge this week:



I started by adhering a panel of Playful Palette to a panel of Very Vanilla, then adhered them to a panel of Wild Wasabi. Next, I added some Tear & Tape Adhesive to a length of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and carefully lined it up right at the point the Playful Palette strip met the Very Vanilla panel.  I made sure the ribbon was a little longer than my art panel so that I could also secure it to the back.

I pulled out my Swirly Scribbles Thinlets dies and cut two Wild Wasabi “wreaths”.  They were not lined up exactly perfectly to create a little fuller looking wreath, dotted very carefully with Liquid Glue and set aside to dry.  Next, I stamped 3 of the rose images from Better Together in Flirty Flamingo onto a scrap of Pink Pirouette card stock and carefully cut them out with my Paper Snips.  But the leaves are green…..

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

Yes, so I stamped three more of the rose images ,this time in Wild Wasabi onto a scrap of Wild Wasabi card stock. Then, I carefully cut them out again with Paper Snips and decided to outline them a little more with my Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker.  I lined them up with my pink roses and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere them.

The sentiment banner came next.  It was stamped in Versa Mark onto a strip of Blushing Bride, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I snipped a little off the end with my Banner Triple Punch and added it and the strip of Fabulous Foil DSP to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.  My roses were attached to the wreath with some Liquid Glue and some Dimensionals.  Then, the wreath was attached to the front with a lot of small pieces of Dimensionals.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Blushing Bride base and 3 Metallic Enamel Dots finished it off.

More Gold Embossing Powder was added to the inside sentiment, also from Better Together, and a single rose was added to the bottom corner.  This time, I used the ink to rubber method on the rose, using my Wild Wasabi and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the stamp.  And, I even decorated my envelope…

Card stock cuts and a supply list of the products used to create my card will be at the end of my post.
