Banner Greetings Sneak Peek

I created a card with some of the retiring Lucky Limeade card stock and ink along with a new Hostess stamp set called Banner Greetings from Stampin’ Up!  This set has some great sentiments and I know that I’ll be using it a lot.  My card design was inspired by the Fab Friday 17 sketch.

Banner Greetings

I started by adhering a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to a panel of Raspberry Ripple card stock with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a strip of Print Poetry DSP  to the Vanilla Panel with SNAIL.  You might recognize the tag that I stamped the flowers from the Embellished Events stamp set on, it’s my left over tag from the April My Paper Pumpin Kit.  I used Lucky Limeade ink to stamp the image on the tag, then I adhered the tag (it’s self-adhesive) to the card front.

I adhered three Raspberry Ripple In Color Dahlias to the tag with Glue Dots and I used my Paper-Piercing Tool to place two 3/8″ Designer Printed Brads through the top of the DSP panel.  To finish the card front, I stamped the sentiment from the Banner Greetings stamp set in Raspberry Ripple ink on Very Vanilla card stock and I cut it out with my Paper Snips.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the decorated panel to the Lucky Limeade card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Embellished Events

I used my Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade Stampin’ Write Markers to color the Embellished Events flower image and I stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel, then adhered the panel inside the card with SNAIL.
