  • DSP:2 pieces 1 ¼ x 4”, 2 pieces 2 x 2 3/8” 
  • Glimmer paper ½ x 2 ½” 
  1. Score real read card stock at 4 ¼”. Use paper trimmer to cut front of the card to the center at 1 ½” on both sides. Score middle part at 2 1/8”. 
  2. Apply adhesive to 2 big rectangles and glue coastal cabana piece. 
  3. Adhere DSP to the front of the card. Adhere glimmer paper strip. 
  4. Stamp snowmen and hat on scrap piece in memento ink. Color with blends and punch. Punch hands from early espresso piece. Assemble snowmen. Add to the cart front with dimensionals. Make a scarf from the ribbon and add with glue dot.

Floral Essence Thank You

Hello, my stamping friend.
Today I want to share another card made with Floral Essence bundle. Flowers are made from vellum and are very easy to put together.

The design of the card is simple. But I use this layout a lot when need to mass produce:
  • Petal Pink CS: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2"
  • Whisper White: 4 x 4 1/4, scrap for label and leaves
  • Velum: scarp for 2 flowers
  • DSP: 2 x 5 1/4
Tip: after stamping on velum - wait for it to dry before punching or heat-set it.
If you do not own this bundle yet - I strongly recommend.
Happy Stamping!
