Elements of Style RAK


Receiving a handmade card as a random act of kindness (RAK) always touches my heart.  This elegant card was given to me by my friend, Sandy.  She CASE'd (Copy And Share with Everyone) a card by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lianne Carper (who CASE'd Demo Tina Dyck, who found it on the internet somewhere . . . and so goes the story of how a cool card goes "viral.")  Here's Lianne's card and instructions on how to make your very own. 

The Elements of Style floral stamp (Wood Mount 118611, Clear Mount 120045) was stamped repeatedly to create a Toile background on Very Vanilla card stock.  It zoomed to "?ber-cool" when the stamped background was embossed with the Stampin' Up! Square Lattice Textured
Impressions Embossing Folder (119976). 




  1. Thanks, Mary – great way to use up some retiring colors! I’m going to use Brocade Blue and Marvelous Magenta – now that’s old! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful card to receive. So lovely.

    Hi Mary! I bought this card from a person here at the farmer’s market and shared it with my SU group who oohed and ahhed over it. She had For you piece on the right side and the bow was a bit different. Anyway, now I can see how they made it and refer that to my stamping friends too. Thanks!

  4. Awesome! Sandy did a beautiful job. So far this is still one of my favorite cards!

  5. This is so beautiful, Mary. You must’ve felt “ooh and aah” when you received it! I too have seen similar versions of this card on SCS, and they’ve all gone into my Faves!

    Have a great day!
