Short & Sweet Saturday - Ribbon of Courage


Here's my Short & Sweet Saturday card for the week. This was one of the cards that was made at my stamp camp last Thursday. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the ribbon is glittery, because it has Clear Wink of Stella on it. It's so pretty in person! This card features the Ribbon of Courage Bundle and Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.


Dimensions:
  • Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock; 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Blushing Bride: 4-1/4" x 2" (embossed layer) and 3-1/4" x 2" (label mat)
  • Very Vanilla: 6-1/2" x 2-1/2" (ribbon, label, & heart)
  • Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5" x 1"

Instructions:
  1. With an 8-1/2" side along the top, score the Thick Very Vanilla card base piece at 4-1/4". Fold the card base piece in half, along the score line. Note: Thick cardstock needs to be scored in order to get a clean fold. Folding without scoring first puts creases where you don't want them.
  2. Emboss the Blushing Bride embossed layer piece by running it though the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach it to the bottom of the Very Vanilla card base using SNAIL Adhesive. Attach the Bundle of Love DSP piece across the top of the embossed layer, putting it down at an angle (see picture). Make sure some of the DSP is hanging over the edge of the card on both sides. Once it's attached, cut off the ends of the DSP that are hanging over the edges of the card.
  3. Stamp the "Live every moment..." stamp from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set onto the Very Vanilla piece using the Basic Gray Archival Stampin' Pad. Punch the greeting out with the Pretty Label Punch. Punch another label out with the same punch from the Blushing Bride label mat piece. Cut the Blushing Bride label in half, long-wise. Attach one label half onto the back of the top half of the greeting label, making sure the top and sides of the Blushing Bride label half show from the front. Attach the other half to the back of the bottom half of the greeting label the same way. Attach it to the card (see picture for placement). 
  4. Stamp the small heart stamp onto the same Very Vanilla piece using the Basic Gray ink pad. Color the flower in the heart with the Blushing Bride marker, the flower center in with the So Saffron marker, and the leaf in with the Pear Pizzazz marker...all from the Subtles Collection Stampin' Write Markers. Die-cut the heart out with the small heart die from the Support Ribbon Framelits Dies,and attach it to the left side of the greeting label with a Mini Glue Dot.
  5. Stamp the ribbon stamp onto the same Very Vanilla piece using the Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut the image out with the large ribbon die. Brush the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush all over the ribbon. Then, attach the ribbon to the right side of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
