Beautiful Friendship with a Neutral Palette

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

I have often shared that my ribbon drawer is the starting point for many of my card designs, the Woven Threads Trim is one of the new ribbons in the 2019 – 2020 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog and is in Sahara Sand – which is one of the Neutrals in the SU color family.

The Beautiful Friendship Stamp set allows you to build up such a pretty floral display as well as 4 very useful greetings, I chose to use the birthday one on this card, the lovely smooth, silky woven threads trim works just beautifully with it.

Card base:  11 x 4 1/4 Thick Whisper White Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Sahara Sand Card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White Card

Ink Colors: Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Early Expresso

I stamped the greeting first in Early Expresso, taking care to leave enough room for the trim.  The biggest flower was added next then I built up the other flowers and leaves until the rest of the card layer was filled.  Toward the top I used the ‘stampin off’ technique to get a lighter tone.  This is a very simple technique – simply ink up your stamp then ‘stamp off’ on a piece of scrap paper then apply to your card without reinking!

I used some Tear and Tape double sided adhesive to attach the trim – it needs some extra help to stay in place.  The trim comes with a little thread which hold all the little tassels in place – you can leave it on or it can be easily removed to produce a fringe .

The stamped layer is attached to the Sahara Sand one with some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive then this attached to the base card with 4 – 5 Stampin Dimensionals.  Could not resist putting a couple of Pearl Basic Jewels to finish off.
