Splendid Day Congratulations card

It’s AFL Grand Final day today in Melbourne at the ‘G’ and my team (Geelong) is playing for the Premiership, so I will be a nervous wreck this afternoon!

Anyway, I wanted to share this card with you, that has the gorgeous Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. It has a pearlised look to it with gorgeous white embossed images. The piece I have used is Pool Party, but I feel it has more of a light green tone to it, like Soft Sea Foam.

On a Thick Basic White card base, I cut a 4″ wide piece of DSP, scored at 1″ from the left. Fold on the scoreline to the front and adhere with Stampin’ Seal.  This gives you instant coordinating layers, as both sides of the paper are printed. Before gluing it to the card front, I placed some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon down the centre of the 1″ strip and adhered the ends on the back with Stampin’ Seal. Take another piece and tie a bow. Now this DSP can be adhered to the card front.

I cut a stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes dies with Pool Party card stock. I placed some Adhesive Sheet to the back of some white card then used the floral image from the Penned Flower dies and ran it through my die cutting machine. The Adhesive Sheet acts like a sticker and is perfect for these more intricate dies and you don’t have glue oozing out. Remove the backing paper and place it onto the circle. Place dimensionals behind the circle and adhere to the card. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and cut it down to size with Paper Snips and added Mini dimensionals.  Another strip of the DSP is added to the inside of the card.
