Need for Speed…



Envelope & Inside Card….

I finally purchased this great stamp set.  I have been after it for what seems like forever! 

The card today was the one we did at the Community Centre.  Unfortunately I couldn’t be there as I have a family wedding this weekend & it is the first time in about 15 years that my brothers & sister have all been together.

After deciding how I wanted to make my card, it sort of come together fairly quickly. 

Measurements –
Base Card – So Saffron – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21.5cm – Score in the middle & fold in half
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/8″ x 3″ or 7.5cm x 13cm – You may have to adjust this after adhering to the Very Vanilla
Layer 3 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ or 14cm x 2.5cm
Layer 4 – DSP – 5 3/8″ x 1 1/8″ or 13.5cm x 2cm
Layer 5 – Not Quiet Navy – 5 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ or 14cm x 2.5cm
Layer 6 – Cherry Cobbler – 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 6.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 7 – Very Vanilla – 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″  or 6cm x 6cm

I cut the DSP into 3/4″ strips & adhered them to the Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I left about 1/8″ of Very Vanilla showing between the DSP strips & the top & side edges of the Very Vanilla.

I adhered the long strip of DSP to the piece of Cherry Cobbler, leaving a narrow edge aound the whole lot.  This was then adhered to the piece of Not Quyiet Navy which had been punched along one long side with the Eyelet Border Punch.

I adhered this piece to the bottom part of the Very Vanilla Cardstock with the DSP on it.  Once this was adhered, it covered the bottom part of the Very Vanilla.

I stamped the image onto the piece of Very Vanilla square in So Saffron Ink.  The bike was stamped onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Not Quiet Navy Ink & cut out.

I adhered the piece of Very Vanilla stamped image to the piece of Cherry Cobbler & adhered the bike over the top with Snail Adhesive.  The whole piece was adhered to the Base Card with SU! Dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock in Not Quiet Navy, punched with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Cherry Cobbler which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  This was then adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.
