Cheer Up Buttercup! It's Simple Saturday!


Simple Saturday

Cheer Up Buttercup! card
If you were having a bad day, would this bright and cheery card with a little gold sparkle and playful washi tape not just give you a skip in your step?  Sometimes just the right card can come at just the right time. Who would you give this to this week. I can think of someone right now! This was a card we made at my card class on this fabulous set "Geometrical". Although my clean and simple cards are usually one layer, the tag is so EASY to make, I deem it clean and simple enough for Saturday.  My favorite thing about this card is the "up" arrows next to the Cheer Up Buttercup sentiment. Do you love it?
Stampin' Up supplies used:
stamp sets: geometrical
paper: basic grey and whisper white 8 1/2 x 11" card stock, gold foil 12x12 paper
ink: basic grey classic stampin' pad, Bermuda bay and strawberry slush markers
ribbons: strawberry slush ruffle stretched trim, Bermuda bay 1/8" taffeta ribbon, gold baker's twine
tools: scalloped tag topper punch
other: epic day this and that washi tape
Cut basic grey base at 4 1/4 x 11" and then fold. Stamp arrows in basic grey (this is called tone on tone).  Cut 2 x 31/4" strip of whisper white paper and punch with scalloped tag topper punch. Color cheer up stamp with markers as show and angle it in the center of the tag (this is where the clear mount stamps really shine!).  Use tiny strip of gold to underline the stamp and trim on edges. Adhere washi tape and also trim flush with edge of tag.  Stamp arrow above the sentiment until it goes off the edge of tag. Loop ribbons through and pull them through the loop and trim. Attach on four corners of tag with stampin' dimensionals.
