911? Any card that can easily be thrown together in less than 10 minutes qualifies for my Stamping 911 category. This card is no exception. It also follows the rule of today's Splitcoast Stampers' Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC167): No Stamps. Easy, schpeezy to do with rub-ons and die-cuts.
The card base is Stampin' Up!'s delicious textured card stock in Old Olive. TIP: Textured card stock gives a simple card depth and style. The dimensions are 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5.5" (at the top). I next layered a classy stripe from Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper. TIP: I covered the Pumpkin Pie stripe with the ribbon to keep the color scheme simple.
The Die Cut Blooms (also textured) pop out in seconds and are quite fun to mix and match flowers and centers. This set is offered exclusively in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini, which expires 6/30. Die-cut Blooms come in four 12 x 12 sheets, one each of Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue. TIP: They coordinate especially well with Jersey Shore and Summer Picnic Designer Paper. White Rub-Ons offer some zing to the flower center and a create a quick and crisp "happiness" sentiment.
The final touch is some Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and a matching button. TIP: I added some white thread to the button because I always feel they look a little "naked" without. The flower was adhered to the card with some Stampin' Dimensionals for some 3-D action. All in a flash.
