Simple & Pretty Love What You Do Friend Card

Create a simple friend card using Love What You Do stamp set - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

Today’s friend card is primarily neutral (Whisper White and Gray Granite) with the perfect pop of Poppy Parade.  Gray Granite (a new core collection color) and Poppy Parade (a returning In Color) are part of the Stampin’ Up! Color Revamp.  New colors, retiring colors, new ink pad design and color comparisons are summarized here.

The Share What You Love Bundles (on sale here) have been an uber popular way for customers to get their hands on new products before the annual catalog begins June 1.  I used many of the products in the Share What You Love product suite on today’s card.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Using a Stampin’ Trimmer and Thick Whisper White card stock, cut and score a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.  Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 Grapefruit Grove polka dot pattern from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper  collection (available June 1) on top.

Cut Whisper White card stock to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Round corners using the Detailed Trio Punch (available June 1).  Using the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform, center and crop this layer with the third largest oval die from Stampin’ Up! Layering Ovals Framelits. 

To create the stitched oval frame, use the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to crop Whisper White card stock with the Big Shot.  Center the third largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies on the stitched oval and crop.  Adhere as shown using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stamp giraffe from Animal Outing stamp set (available June 1) with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a 3 x 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals below the open oval.

Stamp “welcome” (Animal Outing stamp set) with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop (sentiment is off center right) with the label die from Stitched Labels Framelits Dies (available June 1).

Add coordinating Grapefruit Grove and Basic Black self-adhesive Faceted Dots around sentiment.  Thread Grapefruit Grove 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon through each end of the label and tie in a bow on the right around the oval layer.  I tucked a Stampin’ Dimensional below “welcome” to keep the label in place.  Both the dots and ribbon are available June 1.  Adhere to card base.
