Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Braided Hello Friend Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Braided stamp set bundle and the Seriously The Best stamp set to create my card to share today.  I showed you how to make this card on my YouTube Live video today and you can see it here.

My card design was inspired by The Paper Players PP483.

I started by punching two panels of Soft Sea Foam card stock with the Braided Border Punch.  Then I used the Stamparatus to stamp the braid image from the Beautifully Braided photopolymer stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on the punched card stock.  I adhered the punches to panel of Soft Sea Foam DSP from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP pack with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the edges even with the DSP panel.

Then I adhered the panel of Soft Sea Foam DSP to a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with SNAIL and then to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seriously The Best stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled it with Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then heat embossed it.  I stamped the image from the Beautifully Braided stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink over the sentiment panel.

I cut the sentiment out with one of the Stitched Shapes Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I added three of the Gilded Gems (available April 1) to finish the card front.

I stamped the image from the Beautifully Braided stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White card stock too finish the inside of the card.

  1. Hi Amy! Your card is so soft and serene. I love the gingham checks and the gorgeous flowers! This card will brighten someone’s day! So happy you joined my sketch challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  2. Oh I am so pleased to see you use this stamp set and border punch Amy – I love the soft greens you chose for your card too. I think this duo is highly under-rated and have used it lots since I ran a class with it earlier this year – although it never occurred to me how great it would be for Claire’s sketch! Thanks for playing along with us over at The Paper Players this week – always a joy to see you in the gallery!
