"Geometrical," of course, is the name of one of Stampin' Up!'s newest stamp sets from the 2014 Occasions Catalog. I shared one of the stamps with you earlier in the week, and now I've got another card that I definitely had some fun making with another of the stamps!
After Thank You cards, my favorite card to make is a Get Well card. And with Stampin' Up!'s stamp collection, I get a lot of different ways to express that sentiment. "Cheer Up Buttercup" was just perfect for today's card, as it was a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) challenge for one of my online Stampin' Up! Demonstrator groups. The key to this card was the fun flower. OK, it's not a buttercup – I understand that buttercups are yellow. But I had enough yellow on Monday with that Summer Starfruit card, so I was ready for something a bit more on the orange side. Co Calypso Coral it was!
This was a really quick and easy card to make. For the polka dot layer, I just embossed a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Naturals White Cardstock with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, and then sponged it with Pacific Point Ink. That made those Polka dots stand out nicely!
I cut the flowers out using Calypso Coral Cardstock and one of the flower dies in the Secret Garden Framelits Collection. I offset them a bit and adhered them together with some Stampin' Up! SNAIL. I used the eraser end of a pencil to push the center of the flowers in a bit and curled the edges of the petals to distress them just a tad. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using Pacific Point Ink, and added a strip of Calypso Coral Cardstock to the bottom and adhered this group to the card front with more SNAIL. Finally I threaded a Pacific Point Button with some Calypso Coral Baker's Twine, then adhered it to the center of the flower using Mini Glue Dots. I also adhered the flower to the card using the glue dots.
In no time at all I had a fun Get Well Card! And I still haven't used any of the geometrical shapes from this stamp set! Soon, though. I'm sure I'll have fun with them once I get started!
