"You can do this" Encouragement Card with Stampin' Up!'s Forever Fern Bundle
Today's card is fun to make and is a great card to give to a friend to give them a little extra encouragement with everything happening in the world right now.
The colors that I chose for the card I am featuring today are Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose and Old Olive.
I used the following cuts of cardstock:
Rococo Rose: 8½” x 5½”, scored at 4¼”
Merry Merlot: 2¼" x 2¼"
Merry Merlot: 4¼” x 1¼”
Old Olive: 4¼” x 1”
Rococo Rose: 4" x ¾"
I also used the following stamps and die cuts:
"You can do this" sentiment stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set
Large leaf spring from the Forever Flourishing die set
2⅛" x 2⅛" stitched square from the Stitched Shapes die set
Trim a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock to 8½” x 5½” and score at 4¼”
Use a bone folder to get a good crease in the fold for your card base so the card will lie flat
Trim a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock to 4" x ¾"
Trim a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock to 4¼” x 1¼”
Trim a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock to 2¼" x 2¼"
Trim a piece of Old Olive cardstock to 4¼” x 1”
Die cut the 2⅛" x 2⅛" stitched square from the Stitched Shapes die set in Old Olive cardstock
Die cut the large leafy sprig from the Forever Flourishing die set in Rococo Rose cardstock
Use the Lovely Labels pick a punch to punch either side of the 4¼” x 1” piece of Old Olive, using the side that has the rounded point on it
Use the Lovely Labels pick a punch to punch either side of the 4" x ¾" piece of Rococo Rose, using the side that doesn't have the rounded point on it
Cover the All Wired Up background stamp in Rococo Rose ink and stamp the front of your Rococo Rose card base
Measure 3" from the top right towards the left of the card and place a small pencil mark
Measure 3" from the top right towards the bottom right of the card and place a small pencil mark
Using your paper trimmer score feature, score a line between the two pencil marks, fold over and use your bone folder to get a crisp clean fold
Stamp your "you can do this" sentiment in Merry Merlot ink, centered on the Rococo Rose punched strip
Use your Wink of Stella pen and color over the entirety of the large leafy sprig die cut in Rococo Rose cardstock
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the Old Olive stitched square and apply, centered, on the 2¼" x 2¼" Merry Merlot cardstock
Apply Stampin' Seal to the folded flap of your card base and adhere down
Apply Stampin' Seal to the top of the fold and adhere your square Merry Merlot cardstock, leaving approximately ⅛" border on the Rococo Rose card base
Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your Rococo Rose sentiment strip label and adhere, centered, on your Old Olive punched label
Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the Old Olive punched label and adhere, centered, over the Merry Merlot cardstock strip near the bottom of your card base
Use your fine tip glue pen on the back of your Rococo Rose large leaf sprig and adhere down over the Old Olive stitched square
To finish off the card, I applied basic rhinestones to the sentiment strip
