Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson – Affectionately Yours
I was looking through the Annual Catalogue the other day when I came across these sweet cards on page 53. I really liked the card with all the flowers and wanted to C.A.S.E. (Copy And Selectively Edit) it using the new Love Notes Framelits.
I decided to use my long neglected Affectionately Yours DSP and set myself an extra challenge of coming up with a masculine card as well as a bright flowery one, I received a grunt of approval from one of my sons, so I must have nailed it 🙂
I used the coordinating washi tape instead of the ribbon and have a sentiment from Acorny Thank You stamped on a Thick Whisper White stitched oval on top of the banner.
I covered up the floral design inside the envelope flaps with the little liner piece from the framelit set to stick with my more masculine design. Tip: I discovered that one of the flaps is bigger than the other one, you can see on the bottom envelope that the flap doesn’t quite cover the sides, so if your envelope looks a bit funny you might have the wrong flap folded over.
To make the letter inserts I just turned the smallest one upside down, except for the bottom one which I cut by hand. The “hello” is from Crazy About You and I was really pleased to find that this set has lots of sentiments that will fit on these little inserts.
My second card uses the same layout and DSP but I went for a much more feminine feel this time. The sentiments are from Crazy About You again and the die cut “happy” is from the coordinating Hello You Thinlits.
As the “happy” overhangs the edge of the oval I adhered the oval and banner together to give it more support and then popped the banner piece up with dimensionals.
Standard card base: 10.5 x 14.8cm
Layer 1: 9.5 x 13.8cm
Banner: 2.5 x 13.8cm (ends were flagged with the Triple Banner Punch)
I like how the envelopes gape a little on the front of the card, it adds that dimension and texture that I really like but doesn’t make the cards to delicate to post. I think these cards turned out beautifully, I hope you like them too and I now have a couple of pieces of “happy mail” ready to share 🙂
See you soon!
