Backyard Basics with Venetian Romance

I used the Backyard Basics stamp set and Framelits and the Venetian Romance DSP from Stampin’ Up! to create my card share for today.  I also pulled out the new Pretty Print Embossing Folder, one of my favorite items from the Holiday Catalog, to add a little texture.

My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 304 Sketch.

Backyard Basics

I started by adhering a panel of Venetian Romance DSP to a Pistachio Pudding card base with SNAIL.  I embossed a panel of Pistachio Pudding card stock with the Pretty Print Embossing Folder and adhered it to another panel of Pistachio Pudding card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I cut a circle from Strawberry Slush card stock using the Circles Collection Framelits die and a circle from Very Vanilla card stock using the 2-1/2″ Circle on the Circles #2 Originals die and I adhered them together with SNAIL.  I trimmed the edge off and adhered the circles to the card front with SNAIL.

Next, I stamped the Backyard Basics flower image in StazOn Jet Black on a Very Vanilla panel, colored it with my Stampin’ Write Markers, cut it out with the Backyard Basics Framelit die and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a strip of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8″ Stretch Ruffle Trim to a thin strip of Pistachio Pudding card stock with SNAIL and I adhered the layered strip to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits die.  I adhered the sentiment to a Baked Brown Sugar banner with SNAIL that I’d cut with the larger Bitty Banners Framelit die, then I adhered one of the In Color Boutique Details with a Glue Dot to the end of the banner and I adhered the banner to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little SNAIL.

I adhered a strip of Venetian Romance DSP to a strip of Pistachio Pudding card stock, then to a Very Vanilla panel to complete the inside of the card.
