The card I'm sharing today is cased from a birthday notecard (3-1/2" x 5"), I received from my sweet friend, Donna Griffith (from the Stampin' Up! home office).  It uses the Flourishing Phrases Bundle and I totally fell in love with it, but wanted to make it a full-size 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card for my Stamp-a-Stack class earlier this week.  It was a huge hit at the class and I think you will love it too!  Here's the details:

Flourishing Phrases Bundle Card - in 5 easy steps:

  1. Apply Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape near the bottom of a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Adhere 1/4" x 3-1/2" strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock at the bottom, slightly overlapping Washi Tape.
  2. Die cut Whisper White "border lattice" shape from Flourish Thinlits.  Cut exactly in half.  Don't adhere yet.
  3. Stamp floral image (from Flourishing Phrases stamp set) with Peekaboo Peach ink.  Stamp greeting (from Rose Wonder stamp set) with Watercolor Melon ink. TIP: before stamping the lattice shape halfway over Washi Tape so you can "eyeball" where the greeting should be stamped. 
  4. Adhere lattice shape with Fine Tip Glue.  Attached three Rhinestone Jewels.
  5. Adhere completed panel with Stampin' Dimensionals to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Watermelon Wonder card base.

Or do like Donna did and make a notecard size.

Either one is a lovely card. the lattice shape is cut in half, you may as well make two cards...right?  

World Card Making Day reminds us that the best gifts are handmade from the heart.  Celebrate this weekend by making your own handmade cards and don't forget to send them to someone special. 

Enjoy~Dawn O
