Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper Card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights


Hello and welcome to my blog. I've made this beautiful gatefold thank you card for Kylie's International Blog Highlights. I'm asking you to please vote for my card so I can participate in her Top 10 Blog Hop! CLICK HERE TO VOTE! Look for entry #7. Just click on the heart in the upper right-hand corner. It will turn red when you have voted.


The card I'm featuring is made with the Softly Stipppled Designer Series Paper that's a free Saleabration item you earn with a $50 order! I am going to show you a selection of pictures of this card then provide you with a link to a free tutorial with all the dimensions and instruction. To assist you with constructing this card, I have provided links to all the supplies I used.

I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" Pool Party base folded in half. On the left side is a 1" x 5 1/4" piece of the tweed design from the Softly Stippled designer series paper. On the right side is the beautiful flowery piece in Pool Party and Wild Wheat. Before adhering these pieces to the card base, I embossed them with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder that is also a free Saleabration product.


The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Expressions stamp set and is stamped on a Basic White piece of paper in Wild Wheat. The Lost Lagoon background piece is from the Soft Shimmer Paper pack. Both pieces were cut with dies from the Thoughtful Expression Die set.


The leafy strip is a die from Notes of Nature and is cut out of the Distressed Gold Specialty paper.


In this close-up you can see the embossing and also the Adhesive-Backed Birds.


On the inside I stamped a thank you sentiment.
