Backyard Basics Hello

I finally had some time to get a quick card made today.  Yippee!!  I used the Backyard Basics and Four You stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! and I also pulled out some of the Eastern Elegance DSP and the new Chevron Ribbon.

Backyard Basics

I started by adhering a panel of Eastern Elegance DSP to a panel of Whisper White cards stock, then to a Coastal Cabana card base with SNAIL.  I trimmed a piece of the Crushed Curry 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon and adhered with SNAIL to the card front.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Four You stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the flower images from the Backyard Basics stamp set in Crushed Curry ink around the edge of the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out with the Ovals Collection Framelit die and I adhered it with SNAIL to an Eastern Elegance DSP oval, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the bird image with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a Whisper White panel, cut it out with the Backyard Basics Framelits and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I finished the card front by adding three little rhinestones.

I finished the inside of the card by adhering a strip of Eastern Elegance DSP to a Whisper White panel.
