This is another fun card to make and it is made out of the same FREE stamp set that the Ferris Wheel Card was made from – Feeling Sentimental. The Ribbon is the same Summer Starfruit Stitched Ribbon that we used on a previous card. The Designer Series Paper was also the Sycamore Street DSP that is FREE with a $50 purchase. What a fun way to get many different cards using the same products, most of which are FREE!
This is my favorite card of the bunch – Yes, it is a little collagey. Yes, it is a horizontal opening card with the Celebrate stamped "the wrong way".
Wendy thinks it shouldn't be so collagey and says the card should be "right side up".
And Sarah, a customer, tweaked it a bit more by using Calypso Coral Classic Ink to stamp the Celebrate saying instead of using Early Espresso Ink. I think it looks a little bit better than the original card as it highlights the little bit of Calypso Coral Card Stock that was embossed using the Argyle Embossing Folder. This bring a good point – Experiment and try new things. You will be surprised on how creative YOU can be.
We stamped the bike on Whisper White Card Stock and Stamped the Celebrate on the larger piece of Whisper White Card Stock. We sponged with Early Espresso Ink around all the pieces to get an antiquey look and feel to this card. Yes, it was a lot of sponging but I think it made a big difference and is worth the effort. Everything was attached with green glue except for the ribbon which was attached with tape. It you use green glue on ribbon, it will come out of the ribbon.
Layer the Bike and the other piece of Whisper White on Early Espresso. It works best to attach the larger piece of Whisper White onto to Summer Starfruit Card Stock card base then layer the DSP, then the Calypso Coral Card Stock.
Then take a piece of Early Espresso Card Stock and the Summer Starfruit Stitched Ribbon and first tape the ends of the ribbon around the back of the Early Espresso Card Stock then tape that down to the larger Whisper White Card Stock. That way the ends of the ribbon are hidden! Finally, attach the bike. You will use a dimensional for the corner that is not over all the layers (on the top right hand corner of the original card) and tape on the rest of the piece.
I hope you enjoyed these sets of cards using the FREE Sale-A-Bration sets.
And the good news is that our Spring Fling is still during Sale-A-Bration so any order over $50 placed that weekend will allow you to get one or more of these stamp sets or DSP for free!
