ICS Blog Hop...It's a Girl Thing

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire Create Share blog hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who come together on the second Tuesday of the month to do this blog hop.  This month the theme is, It's a Girl Thing.  


I chose to use the oh so pretty Pansy Petals DSP.  This pack of patterned paper coordinates with the Pansy Patch stamp set and the Pansy dies (aka the Pansy Patch bundle).  The Pansy Patch bundle will still be available in the upcoming 2022-23 Annual catalog  but sadly the Pansy Petals DSP is retiring.  All the flowers and leaves for the card were cut from the Pansy Petals DSP using the Pansy dies.  I used the 2021-23 In Color Jewels in Soft Succulent for the centers of each flower.  

The Fresh Freesia gingham check card measures 5-1/4" x 12" and scored at 4" and 8".  The front is a double layer of the DSP.  I adhered  them together to  give the front a little more weight and stability.  I used the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the circle in the front.  The Stylish Shapes dies will be debuting in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and features circles, squares, and banners with a pierced edge detail.  The sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The sweet Fresh Freesia ribbon is the 3/8" Open Weave ribbon and adds a little bit more "girliness" to the card.


Inside I added a Basic White CS layer (3-3/4" x 5") over the DSP to make it easier to write a note.  The card is backed by a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Fresh Freesia CS.  This card looks like a standard card but is a little different and lets you see both sides of the DSP.  

Now it is time for you to see what the talented Terri has created for you!

Very pretty! I like how you have the dimensionals under the flowers and use the DSP as your card front! Neat idea!
