  Hi Stampers!

Here is the final card from my weekend YouTube Premier video from Saturday.  It is the Best Wishes card using the Art Gallery bundle and suite.   

I started with a Pool Party card base and adhered a Night of Navy mat to both the card front and the card inside.  I used some of the Fine Art Floral DSP in that gorgeous muted Pool Party stucco paint pattern and layered that next on the card front.  I placed the silver side of the quatrefoil pattern Golden Garden Acetate face up, and used mini glue dots strategically placed behind the flowers on the front and behind the silver designs in the corners. For the details on how I stamped all the flowers for the card front and put it all together, check out the YouTube Video link here, starting at the 47:58 minute mark:

For the card inside, I stamped another flower in the same colors as above in the lower left corner of a Basic White panel and adhered it with glue.  I did not stamp a sentiment on the card inside as I wanted to leave room to write a personal note, but you could totally stamp a sentiment if you prefer.    

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 of the same Pool Party stucco pattern Fine Art Floral DSP for the envelope flap. Just can't send a naked envelope after working so hard on the card; that would just be wrong! 😉

Hope you enjoyed the cards in this class.  I really LOVE this set and holding 3 different classes gave us all an opportunity to get lots of ideas and really use it to its fullest potential.  Hope you enjoy making the card!  If you like this video and cards, let me know.  I love sharing what I do and hearing how others use these ideas to create their own ideas.  That is just the best...sharing ideas!
