Happy Friday! I created this card using the Sentimental Park Bundle (stamps and dies) and the pretty Regency Park 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. This card was created for a special friend who will be retiring in a few short months! Yay for being retired!
I started off by adhering a panel of the Regency Park Designer Series Paper in a bold flower print to a card base of Balmy Blue. I used a second piece of paper from the Regency Park DSP pack to create a banner on the card front – this paper is in coordinating Mango Melody.
Using the dies from the Sentimental Park Dies set, I cut out a number of small flowers – both solid images and outline images -in white, Balmy Blue and Mango Melody. I stacked some of the flowers and adhered the pieces together. Some of the smaller flowers stand by themselves.
The Sentimental Park Dies set has several sentiment labels that you can use. I cut out the large, ornate sentiment label in Basic White cardstock and layered a second sentiment label in white on top of the larger label. The cool thing about the large, ornate label is that the die cuts open slots on the right and left side so that the smaller sentiment label can be slipped into these slots. This creates a pretty layered look! The sentiment was stamped in Mango Melody ink onto the smaller label and the two labels were adhered together.
Before adhering the sentiment label to the card front, I adhered several of the flowers around the right and left sides of the ornate label. I then adhered the sentiment label to the card front, and over top of the banner, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Several of the remaining die cut flowers were tucked under and around the sentiment label.
I used a length of Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon and folded the ribbon in half, securing the pieces together with a Mini Glue Dot. I applied a second Mini Glue Dot to the back of the ribbon and tucked the ribbon under the sentiment label and allowed the ribbon ends to hang down. So pretty!
For the inside panel, I stamped an additional sentiment from the Sentimental Park Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink and used the two-step flower stamps from the same set to stamp flowers along the bottom of the panel. This panel was then adhered to a mat in Mango Melody and this unit was then adhered to the inside of the card.
The same two-step flower stamps were used to stamp onto the lower left of the envelope front in Mango Melody ink. I added a piece of coordinating designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed away the excess paper from the flap. To finish off the card, I added several Adhesive-backed Milky Dots in blue to several of the flower centers on the card front.
You can purchase the Sentimental Park Bundle from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog and if you make the purchase during Sale-a-bration you can earn a Level 1 free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog! That’s a win-win. The Sentimental Park Stamp Set contains a ton of images and sentiments. The sentiments in this stamp set alone will cover thank you cards, thinking of you cards, celebrations, new baby, birthdays, graduations and anniversaries! That’s a lot of coverage from just one stamp set! The Sentimental Park Dies include three different sentiment labels and a ton of flower dies and several stem and leaf dies! And if you purchase the bundle – stamps and dies together – you save 10% and earn a free Sale-A-Bration item! This is a great deal!
