Stampin' Up Hand Penned Petals Congratulations Card

Happy Friday Even and welcome to another week of amazing projects from the Krew at Happy Inkin Thursday Krew.  This week Amy gave us a color challenge using at least 3 of the colors provided.  I chose to use to use all 5 for this weeks card.

Today's card features Stampin' Up Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set.  I paired it with Stampin' Up Layering Design Vellum and Stampin' Up Artfully Composed DSP.  

I layered a panel of DSP to a panel of Calypso Coral card stock.  I adhered a piece of vellum to the card front. 

I stamped the flower from Stampin' Up Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set using Smoky Slate ink on a piece of Basic White.  I colored the image with Stampin' Blends: Calypso Coral light/dark, Soft Succulent light/dark and Evening Evergreen light/dark.

I die cut the flower image using Stampin' Up Penned Flower Dies.  I die cut a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock with the same dies.

I cut a piece of Evening Evergreen twine from Stampin' Up Fans Bakers Twine.  I adhered a little bit of Stampin' Seal to the vellum and wrapped the twine adhering it to the card front.  I adhered the flower to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Art Gallery Stamp Set with Evening Evergreen ink on a piece of Crumb Cake.  I die cut the seniment with Stampin' Up Stylish Shapes Dies.  I adhered the strip to the front with liquid adhesive.

I finished up the front with Stampin' Up 2021-23 In Color Opal Rounds.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base folded in tent fashion.

The inside is a panel of Basic White with DSP adhered to the right side.  I adhered the Basic White to a panel of Calypso Coral.

Thank you so much for hopping by! Up next is Terry Lynn.
