Stylish Stems Framelits Dies

Hello friends,

I guess I could call this an envelope card, as that's what it looks like.



The Night Of Navy base card (#106577) is a normal size card, then the flap has been added. The flap is cut at 14.9 cm x 9.5cm. I scored at 1cm along the long side. I marked at the halfway point on the opposite side at 7.5cm and on each side at 4.5cm from the scoreline. Then I cut the v shape for the flap. See diagram below , it's probably easier to understand.


I cut the outline of the flower on the flap using the Framelit from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies (#142750), then embossed the flap with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493). Always cut with the framelits first before embossing. If you do it the other way, you will flatten out the embossed pattern. Then using Whisper White card (#106549) I cut another flower using the same framelit. I coloured this with a dauber and Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) around the outside, then So Saffron (#126957) in the centre of the flower. I cut another flower using the detailed flower framelit using Cherry Cobbler card (#121681). I added glitter to this with the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141897). I glued this to the base flower that I coloured, using the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The centre was coloured with the Gold Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush (#141898).
The DSP is from the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (#141663). To attach the flap to the card, ensure you have the card so that the opening is at the top and attach the flap to the back top of the card. To attach the flower, close the flap over the front of the card and position the card to line up with the cutout on the flap. I attached the flower with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). Congratulations is from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525), stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966) and cut with a framelit from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). This was also attached with Dimensionals. Ensure the Dimensionals are only on the outer edges of the banner so the flap can tuck under it.
I also decorated inside the card. I should do this more often. I stamped the smaller flowers from the Special Reason stamp set (#142899) using Night of Navy ink (#126970) and using the stamping off method. I actually stamped twice on scrap paper, then stamped 4 times on the Whisper White card without re-inking. The sentiment is also from the Special Reason stamp set and stamped with Night Of Navy ink.


Have a great day.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!
