You're My Person

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a card that will let the person you're sending it to know that they are your person. I used a mix of products from the July - December Mini Catalog and the Annual Catalog as well.

To create this card all you need is some cardstock and designer series paper strips at different sizes. You are going to use two strips that are the 1" x 3 3/4" that are the same color as your card base. Here mine are in Petal Petal Pink Cardstock. These two strips you are going to stamp on in a coordinating color ink. I used Calypso Coral Ink.

Next you are going to need two strips of Designer Series Paper that coordinates. I used the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper (and this is where I pulled the colors for my card today from). The DSP strips are going to be cut at 3/4" x 3 3/4". And then you are going to need three strips of coordinating Cardstock that are cut at 1/2" x 3 3/4" I picked Calypso Coral Cardstock. Then you are going to simply attach one cardstock strip to the card base (after stamping) that's the same color as the card base and then alternate between the other two pieces of cardstock and designer series paper. I found it easier to do the big pieces first and then fill in the gaps with the 1/2" strips.

Once that is done all you have to do is stamp your sentiment in a coordinating color on a punched or die cut shape. I picked the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to punch out my sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp Set. I stamped it in Soft Sea Foam Ink onto a scrap of Basic White. I added some Soft Sea Foam Seam Binding behind the sentiment as well as one the Open Leaf Trinkets and popped it up with some Stampin' Dimensionals to finish the card. Thanks for dropping by today, I have everything listed in the shopping list below incase you need some of the supplies that I used.
