New Host Set: Very Vintage

In every Stampin’ Up! catalog, there are a handful of stamp sets that can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards.  Stampin’ Rewards can be earned in one of two ways:

  1. Host a qualifying party or workshop of $150 or more in sales.
  2. Place an order of $150 or more (before tax and shipping).

When one of these two things happen, Stampin’ Rewards are earned, which are basically rewards dollars that you can use on anything in the catalog or online store, including the host sets mentioned above!  The stamp set I used on this card is one of those sets.  It is called Very Vintage, and can be found on page 227 of the new catalog.  The set comes in your choice of wood mount or clear mount, and the full set can be seen below:

For this card, I used the large floral stamp, as well as the lacy looking one, and of course, the “Dear Friend” sentiment as well!  To get the clean lines, I used masking tape across the top and bottom of the cardstock so that there would be definite lines to the design.  I applied the masking tape before stamping, and once the ink was dry, I removed the tape.  I stamped the flowers in Crumb Cake ink, and stamped some of the lace in the background in Petal Pink.

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Crumb cake card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Soft Suede middle layer:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Very Vanilla top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

 

Also, the stamped area of this card measures about 2-1/8 inches wide, but you can make it as large or small as you want depending where you place your tape!

The only embellishments I added to this card were the pink Share What You Love Artisan Pearls in each corner.  I really just wanted to keep it simple!  I also adhered the top two layers with dimensionals, just to give it a little extra detail!  You can find all of the supplies used on this card below, and of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
