Country Bouquet Friends Card

It's time for another Share It Sunday Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world and we are sharing our projects with you as part of this blog hop.  There is no theme for our blog hop today. 

I'm having so much fun with the Country Bouquet Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January to April Mini Catalogue.  Hearts don't have to be just for Valentine's Day.  Check out this pretty card I made in Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride and Shaded Spruce.  I love the pop of Gold with the Simply Elegant Trim.  

I created this card on a recent Sketch Challenge.  Here's the sketch I used.

Now here's my card. Wouldn't you love to get this card in the mail?


  1. Cut Melon Mambo cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline to form card base.
  2. Cut Vellum Basics 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base.  I apply adhesive only where it will be covered by cardstock so that the adhesive doesn't show.
  3. Cut Blushing Bride cardstock 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base.
  4. Cut largest circle using Stylish Shapes Dies from Melon Mambo cardstock
  5. Adhere to left side of card base using Dimensionals
  6. Wrap trim around hand 2-3 times and remove.  Pinch in the middle and adhere to circle
  7. Stamp 1 heart using Blushing Bride ink and 1 heart using Melon Mambo ink on Basic White cardstock.  Punch out
  8. Stamp 2 sets of leaves using Shaded Spruce ink on Basic White cardstock.  Punch out
  9. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  10. Cut Basic White cardstock 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  11. Stamp sentiment using Melon Mambo ink
  12. Stamp 2 small hearts on right end using Blushing Bride ink
  13. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  14. Adhere emellishments
  15. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  16. Stamp small hearts using Blushing Bride ink
  17. Stamp outline using Melon Mambo ink
  18. Adhere to inside of card
