I told you yesterday about an exciting new event happening over at Joan's Gardens. She has started a new event called "Joan's Gardens Thursday Create a Card Challenge". This week her challenge is to use a JustRite Floral stamp and use the colors pink, yellow and green. Be sure to go over and read all about the challenge and see what you can win. I hope you will support Joan by participating in this exciting event.
Today my card is made using three JustRite flower sets: "Beautiful Blossoms", "Breath of Spring" and "Plant a Little Love". The verse on the inside of the card is from the JustRite "Joyful Hearts" set. This card fits into a business size envelope.
To create this card I started with a piece of card stock 8.5" x 10.5". It was scored along the long side at 1.75", 3.5", 7", and 8.75". A strip of green card stock was cut 1.75" wide for each outside strip. Another green piece of cs cut 3" wide for the center of the card then two narrow strips to go on the edge .
Two strips of white card stock were cut 8.5" by 1.75" for each side panel. I used a square Nestie to cut "windows" in these pieces. For the right side I started in the middle and centered the Nestie to cut an opening. Two more were cut to create three windows on this panel. On the other side four "windows" were cut. The windows were cut offsetting the windows on the right. You can see this in the first picture above. These panels were embossed using the new Cuttlebug "Kassie's Brocade". I just received this embossing from Joan and love it. Two green Martha Stewart borders were cut. They were attached behind the embossed white panel. The white panels were attached to the green panels and then they were attached to the sides of the card using Glue Glider.
The green 3" wide green card stock was attached to the center of the inside of the card. The JustRite verse was stamped and cut out with a Nestie. Isn't it perfect for this card. Below the verse is a white panel to write on. The bottom edges were embossed with a Martha Stewart corner punch.
The flowers were stamped and colored with Copics then cut out. They were tucked into the windows on the front panels and the flower from the "Plant A Little Love" set was placed on the inside of the card. To complete the card a few punched butterflies were added on the inside and some some Dew Drops added to the outside right panel.
I hope you will go over and participate in Joan's challenge. If you read about this challenge on my blog, I'd love for you to let her know in her comment section.
