Any friend would love to receive this handmade card using the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! With its brick embossed background, fun colors, and lots of die-cut details, this card is sure to please!
I needed a cheery card for a friend who is going through a tough time and since she loves plants, I thought this would be a perfect card to send it. Since I wanted a card that would brighten up her mailbox, I went with the bright, bold colors of Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Garden Green. If you’d prefer a softer color palette, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library, where you’re sure to find a color combination you’ll love!
- Mango Melody: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
- Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″
- Basic White: 3″ x 4″
- Bermuda Bay: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
- Basic White: 2″ x 4″ (for die-cutting)
- Gray Granite: 2″ x 4″ (for die-cutting)
- Fold the Mango Melody cardstock in half at the score line and burnish well with your Bone Folder to create the card base.
- Adhere the 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock inside the card.
- Using the Mango Melody ink pad, stamp the large leaf image around the left and bottom of the card front.
- Using the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing folder and the Cut & Emboss Machine, emboss the 3″ x 4″ piece of Basic White cardstock. Adhere to the Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhere to center of card front.
