This card is so soft I wish you could all feel it. It reminds me of velvet, the really expensive ones.
To make this card, I cut a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of the new Cherry Cobbler Core’dinations card stock for the front of my card and sanded it with the Stampin’ Sanding System. This can create somewhat of a mess if you are not careful so I recommend using the Core’dinations Dust Bunny to pick up the paper dust.
I adhered the Core’dinations card stock to a Whisper White card and then stamped a More Merry Messages greeting in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. I punched out the greeting with the Decorative Label Punch and used dimensionals to hold the greeting in the Flourish Designer Frame. I added a Mini Brad at each end of the frame using scissors to trim the ends of the brad so they weren’t visible extending beyond the frame.
I peeled the backing off of the dimensions and used them to attach the Flourish Designer Frame to the card. I thought it still needed a little more accent so I tied a bow of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon and added it below the frame.
The Core’dinations Card Stock is available in three great Stampin’ Up! colours. Check them out below.
