Everyday Cards Project No. 007 - Thinking of You

I apologize for the late post, I tried to create a video tutorial for this card but I was not quite satisfied with the quality of the video lighting so I had to scratch that out. 
This vibrant but quick and easy card was created using the Pretty Petals Flair stamp set from Close To My Heart.  I posted a card on my Facebook page a few weeks ago using this same stamp set and stamping technique.
  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • Lagoon Card Stock
  • Chocolate Card Stock
  • Lagoon Ink Pad
  • Chocolate Ink Pad
  • Teal Shimmer Trim
  • White Satin Ribbon
  • 3-D Foam Tape
  • Tape Runner or Liquid Crystal
  • Close To My Heart Pretty Petals Flair Stamp Set (C1599)
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors
Paper Dimensions:

Card Base - 4.25" X 11"
A - 4" X 5.25" 
B -  3.75" X 5" 
C - Teal Shimmer Trim X 2 cut at 3.75"
D - .50" X 3.75"

  1. Using an 11" X 4.25" Lagoon Card Stock Base, score in center and fold in 
  2. Using the back of the flower stamp and the lagoon ink pad, add ink and stamp off on a piece of scratch paper (Second Generation Stamping Technique) then stamp on layer B (3.75" X 5" White Daisy Card Stock). Using the chocolate ink pad stamp the circle bud on the center of the flower.  Repeat process until desired pattern is completed.
  3. Adhere layer B on top of layer A using a tape runner or liquid crystal.
  4. Add layer C (Teal Shimmer Trim) 1" towards the top of layer B. 
  5. Stamp the "Thinking of You" sentiment using Chocolate Ink Pad on layer D, add 3-D foam tape and adhere on top of layer C.
  6. Add Satin ribbon 1/2" from the left edge of layer B.  Adhere to card base using 3-D foam tape.
  7. For the card inside, use White Daisy card stock and cut at 4" X 5.25", use a sponge and Lagoon ink pad to sponge the edges.  Using the same process in step #2 stamp only the bottom right hand corner of the card stock.  Adhere to the center of the inside of the card.
