Art Gallery Miss You Card

  Hi Stampers!

Here is card #3 from my weekend YouTube Premier video from Saturday.  It is the I Miss You fun fold card using the Art Gallery bundle and suite.   

I started with a Terracotta Tile card base and some of the Fine Art Floral DSP and the gorgeous coordinating Acetate that goes along with the suite.  I scored the card base at 4 1/4" and 2 1/8" and folded the card in half and then folded back the other score line. I adhered the more muted piece of DSP to the small card flap, and a Basic White panel into the card inside.  I aligned the acetate that coordinates to the pretty floral DSP pattern and strategically placed mini glue dots behind leaves on the silver side of the acetate to they would be hidden.  I adhered this on the Petal Pink CS panel and placed glue on the left side of the back of the panel only and then centered it on the small flap over the DSP.  

I stamped the small flower from Art Gallery stamp set in Petal pink ink and stamped the I Miss You sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink over the center of the flower.  I then cut this out using the Stampin Cut & Emboss machine (SCEM) and the next to the smallest tag die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  I folded the ribbon in half and placed it behind the sentiment at an angle and placed that in the center of the card front using Stampin' dimensionals.  I placed three Champagne Basic Jewels under the sentiment.

To see how I pulled the card all together, you can check out my YouTube video here starting at the 17:31 minute mark:

As part of this class video I did not stamp the envelope, but before I send it out I will stamp the same flower as I did on the card inside, to the lower left corner of the envelope front and use some Fine ArtFloral DSP for the envelope flap. You know I can't send a plain ugly envelope with a gorgeous handmade card! 😉 If you want to recreate this card, here are the measurements and supplies I used:
