Wonderful World Thank You Card
Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy! We had a BINGO event on Saturday, and it was so much fun! We played several games of BINGO, created four cards, and everyone left with fabulous prizes.
One of my favorite Stampin’ Up!® Sale-a-bration products this time is a “bundle.” The Wonderful World Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper (DSP) are so beautiful. Since several of the participants were new to stamping, we kept the cards fairly easy. Here’s my Wonderful World thank you card.
I always make extra card kits in case someone shows up unexpectedly. I had one kit leftover, so I made this. The cards for BINGO had a different sentiment.
First, I scored and turned down the corner of a Sahara Sand card base. Then I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces of the beautiful Wonderful World DSP. I cut the top right corner off to match the corner on the card base, then adhered the DSP on the front of the card. (Note: Be sure the corner is turned up when you adhere the DSP.) After the DSP was adhered, I folded the card base corner back down and secured it with SEAL Adhesive.
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the flower. First, place a 3-3/4″ square piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock in the corner of the Stamparatus. Place the stamp (face down) on the Sahara Sand Cardstock, closer to the left side. Close the plate to adhere the stamp, then ink the stamp with Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers. (Be sure to breathe on the stamp after inking it to reactivate the ink.)
Next, I embossed the stamped piece with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 3-1/2″ square piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. I layered this to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (Be careful not to add a Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the top right corner, or you could glue your card closed since it “hangs over” the folded corner. You can add it closer to the center of the card.)
The sentiment is also inked in Blackberry Bliss on a Very Vanilla punched oval and adhered to a Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval. These were both punched with the Double Oval Punch. For our event Saturday, I had punched all the ovals needed for class. I took a piece that had the oval punched out and put it in my Stamparatus. I laid the sentiment stamp in the negative space, then stamped it to make sure it was straight. Then I added the punched oval back into the negative space and stamped again.
To add the sentiment layer to the card, you only need a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side of the oval. The left side is glued directly to the stamped square, since it’s already popped up.
I think everyone was pleased at how simple it was to create this card, but it still looks elegant! While it’s fun to spend a lot of time making a special card, it’s nice to know you can make – and mass produce! – cards quickly and easily as well.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
Very pretty card, Buffy. I love that it looks much more complicated than it was. A great card for beginners.
Thanks, Susan! It was very simple – and they all did a fabulous job of coloring the stamp with markers!
Such a gorgeous card, Buffy! That DSP is so pretty, and I love the colours.
Thanks, Deborah! I love that DSP, and, best of all – it’s free!
