Express Yourself

I just love stamp sets that encourage people and this is another one. We all need to express ourselves once in awhile, don't we? This card is made with our new special paper but you have to subscribe to my email to find out more about it. Sign up on the upper right of this blog. Also, this is the day I start my 12 Days of Christmas newsletters, a special and a tutorial every single day up to Christmas. Don't miss out.

To make this card, cut your cardstock color of choice 5 1/2 by 4 inches. I distressed and dry embossed lines horizontally on my card and then sanded them. That's up to you. The strip on the right hand side is cardstock, cut 5 1/2 by 1/4 inch. The pattern paper strip to the left of it is cut 5 1/2 by 1 inches. Glue those down to your card as shown after distressing. The Express Yourself saying is stamped on a cardstock block cut 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 inch. The vineyard berry paper it's laying on is cut 2 1/4 by 1 inch and the colonial white cardstock it's laying on is cut 3 by 1 1/2 inch. Glue down the largest white paper first about a 1/2 inch down from the top with the right hand side flush to the long patterned strip. Put the vineyard berry paper flush with the strip too right in the center of the cardstock. Stamp your saying on your smallest white paper and glue that down on the vineyard berry cardstock flush with the skinniest strip of paper. Tie a bow and glue that down as shown. Stamp a flower and add a brad, cut out and use a glue dot to attach to ribbon. Add two black brads to the lower left of card. Attach the entire card to an 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of cardstock that you've folded in half. Easy!! Oh, you're wondering about the pink splotches? You need to subscribe to my newsletter to find out about that!
