I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soirée Memories & More Card Pack that is available as a free Sale-A-Bration selection to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today. We’ve got a sketch challenge this week and this is what I made for it:
Here is the sketch that we’re using this week:
I truly love the Sweet Soiree Suite. The coordinating Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack offered during Sale-A-Bration is surely the icing on the cake! This card features a few of the elements from the Card Pack.
I trimmed a couple of the 3″ x 4″ cards to 2″ wide and punched one end with the Triple Banner Punch. After determining the placement of the banners, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to a panel of Whisper White card stock which I had embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I trimmed the overhanging ends of the banners even with the top of the white panel. Then I adhered the white panel to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock.
Next, I cut a circle from Old Olive card stock slightly smaller than a small Silver Metallic Foil Doily using a die from the Layering Circles Framelits dies . I adhered the circle to the back of the doily with Liquid Glue. Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut a floral image from one of the cards in the pack and adhered it to the silver doily with Liquid Glue. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the embellished doily to the card front panel. The sentiment banner is also cut from a card in the pack. It is adhered across the lower edge of the doily with Liquid Glue and a Dimensional is used under the end adhered to the card front. The completed card front panel is adhered to the Old Olive card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Glitter Enamel Dot to the flower and a triple looped bow made with Silver Baker’s Twine to the edge of the banner as the finishing touches. Quick and easy!
I fussy cut another floral image from a card in the pack and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Liquid Glue. The white panel is then adhered to a panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock, which in turn is adhered to the interior of the card. Done! So many options and possibilities offered in this FREE card pack – be sure you get one before the campaign ends next month.
