Stampin’ Up! Two-Tone Flora Center Pop Out Wedding or Anniversary Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Thursday and that means it is time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m looking forward to seeing the projects that my team members have created for the Hop this week! If you are hopping over from Terry Lynn’s blog…welcome!

I used the Two-Tone Flora Bundle and the pretty Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to create my card for the Hop today! The card fold is a CASE from my friend, Mary with Stamps-N-Lingers.

We have a color challenge this week! I used Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue, Soft Succulent and Orchid Oasis.

To create the card base I cut a piece of Calypso Coral to 11″ x 4-1/4″ and scored on the long edge at 2-1/4″, 3-5/8″, 7-3/8″ and 8-3/4″. The two outer score lines are valley folds and the two center score lines are mountain folds. I used my bone folder to burnish all of the score lines.

I cut a center panel measuring 4″ x 3-1/2″ from a piece of Soft Succulent patterned paper from the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper pack. This panel was matted to a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock measuring 4-1/8″ x 3-5/8″. I also cut two side panels measuring 4″ x 2″ from a pretty Calypso Coral flowered print – also from the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper pack. The side panels were adhered to Orchid Oasis mats measuring 4-1/8″ x 2-1/8″. The panels were then adhered to the card front.

Using a scrap piece of Balmy Blue cardstock, I stamped the large leaf image from the Two-Tone Flora Stamp Set twice using Balmy Blue ink. The coordinating dies from the Two-Tone Dies set was used to cut out the images. Two medium-sized flowers were stamped onto Balmy Blue cardstock using Orchid Oasis ink. The fill for the flower was second-generation stamped and then the detailed image was first-generation stamped over the fill area – also in Orchid Oasis ink. The images were cut out using the coordinating die from the Two-Tone Flora Dies set.

The sentiment, from the Something Fancy Stamp Set, was stamped in Orchid Oasis ink onto a scrap of Soft Succulent cardstock then die cut using the small tag from the Something Fancy Dies. A second, larger tag was die cut from Orchid Oasis cardstock and the sentiment label was adhered to the larger label. The flowers and leaf sprigs were dry fit onto the center panel of the card, then adhered using liquid glue. The sentiment label was adhered to the center panel at an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Aren’t these colors pretty together?

To allow for a personal, hand-written sentiment a white center panel was added to the back of the card. I stamped the sentiment “Congratulations” in Orchid Oasis ink onto the panel and also added a stamped flower to the lower left of this panel – also in Orchid Oasis. The panel was matted to a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock, then adhered to the back of the card.

I tied a triple bow using Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered the bow to the top of the sentiment tag using a Mini Glue Dot. Several silver Festive Pearls were also added to the card front. The envelope was decorated with a stamped flower image on the front and a piece of coordinating Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.
