On the CASE: A Small Romantic Card

romantic card

Woo hoo! Nicole and I are back with another On the CASE.  I am working my way through Stampin’ Up!® catalogs, breaking down samples step-by-step, in order to provide you with free tutorials so you can CASE your own.  Nicole is using her investigative skills to solve CASES throughout the crafting universe.  Let the fun begin!

Today I am CASEing an adorable card from the Occasions Catalog. This card uses the Wonderful Romance bundle.  I hope you enjoy today’s small romantic card.

small romantic cardI love this small romantic card.  This floral vellum, from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper collection, is gorgeous.  For a non-standard size card (this one measures 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ when folded), there are lots of details to set this card apart.

“On the CASE” Notes
Your Step-by-Step Guide

1.  Score the Mossy Meadow cardstock at 4-1/2″ to form the card base. Crease with a bone folder.

2.  Adhere the vellum to the Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Add to the card base.

small romantic card4.  Selectively ink the words of the sentiment using a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker®.   Stamp onto 2″ x 1″ Whisper White cardstock.  Snip a “V” in the left end. Adhere to the embossed circle. (Note:  Stampin’ Up! used a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker®,  but I felt mine was too light, so I opted to use Crumb Cake.)

small romantic card5.  Ink both styles of leafy fronds in Pear Pizzazz and stamp onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Die cut using the appropriate Wonderful Romance framelit.

small romantic card6.  Ink the small blossom in Petal Pink and stamp onto Petal Pink cardstock.  Repeat to create a total of three.  Die cut out using the framelits.

small romantic card7. Adhere to the card using glue dots.  Accent the center of each with a pearl.  Add a small Fresh Fig bow. (Note:  Stampin’ Up!’s sample uses a bow created from the new Petal Pink and White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon which had been split.  Since I found this a little difficult to work with and create a pretty bow, I finally gave up and used Fresh Fig ribbon.)

small romantic cardIsn’t this such a pretty little card? I love it.  This could easily be translated into a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ size, as you shall see tomorrow!

This small romantic card is filled with beautiful details.  The stamping is simple, and the die cutting is easy.  Just remember to allow the craft ink to dry before punching out the embossed circle.  Difficulty Level:  3 out of 5, because of the time involved and the number of steps.
