You Are So Beautiful Card

Today's card is a quick and easy, no layer, stamped 'any occasion' card using the new Just Add Text stamp set from Stampin' Up's NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. I love the way this card turned out with the partial embossing on the bottom!

How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:

This card really is so simple to make! Start with a half sheet (11" x 4 1/4") of the new Thick Very Vanilla cardstock– scored and folded at the 5 1/2" mark.

Unfold the cardbase and place it in the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing folder– only putting about 1/4 of the cardfront bottom in the embossing folder. Run that through the Big Shot taking care not to shift the cardbase so you get a straight section of embossed butterflies. (Not to worry if it ends up slightly off- you will be covering the top edge of it with ribbon!)

Once that is done, ink up the 'You Are So Beautiful To Me' stamp from the Just Add Text stamp set with Basic Black Archival ink and stamp the greeting just above the embossed edge, allowing some space to add the ribbon. 

Then, color in the stamped image using the Watercolor Pencils in Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

To finish off the card, place a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive horizontally between the embossed area and the stamped greeting. Peel off the adhesive backing and place a small piece of Old Olive 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon centered vertically on the horizontal strip about 3/4 of an inch from the left edge of the card (where you see the knot in the image). Then place a longer strip of Old Olive 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon right on the horizontal line of Tear & Tape Adhesive and press down to adhere the ribbon to the cardfront. Tie the vertically placed piece of ribbon in a knot.

Trim the ribbon off the edge of the card and the knotted ends if needed.
