background stamping



Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″.

Layer with Whisper White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″,  embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.

Cut a second piece of Whisper White Cardstock, 2 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, emboss with a Greenery Embossing Folder, and adhere to the middle of the card front. (See above photo).

Use the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die to cut a third piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Randomly stamp the flower from Butterly Wishes, and adhere this layer as shown. TIP: Glue in the middle, leaving the right and left edges free, because they are higher.

I used Blushing Bride Ink, but this flower would be pretty in any color.


Now for creating “you” with the Playful Alphabet Dies. Cut a 2″ X 1″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet, remove one side of the paper, and attach a 2″ X 1″ piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock. Place the y-o-u dies on top of the cardstock, and run it through your die cutting machine. Turn it over, and run through a second time to insure a good cut. Free the letters, remove the other side of paper, and stick to your card front. The removal dots show, but I think it adds character, right?


Stamp “Make Me Smile” in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Adhere with glue under “make” and a Dimensional under “smile.” 

Add a few Woven Thread Sequins for sparkle.

Wasn’t that fun? Now you can stamp your own background!


TGIF was my inspiration.
