I'm Thinking of You with Some Tasteful Backgrounds

Hello to you today.  I have a lovely Mossy Meadow card for you.  I am a green person!

Tasteful Textures by Jo Anne Hewins

I got the idea for this card from the list of bundles at the beginning of the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  Did you know there is a list of 29 bundles available for this catalog?  They are listed on pages 4-11 and include the pages where they can be found in the catalog.  Bundles have a 10% discount.  The card I saw is on page 11 where the Tasteful Textures Bundle is featured.

I started with a card base of Mossy Meadow measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  Cut off 1 5/8" from the front of the card.  Stamp the front panel with a stamp from the Tasteful Textures stamp set in Mossy Meadow.  This makes a beautiful background.  I can see this stamp will be used a lot in the future!

The Mossy Meadow panel in front measures 2 7/8 x 2 7/8.  The Pear Pizzazz layer is cut to 2 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Run this layer through your cutting machine using the  Tasteful Backgrounds Dies.  Ahere this to the Mossy Meadow layer.  I used the Mini Dimensionals for this.  When you adhere this panel, note that part of it will overlap the inside of the card.  Don't put glue there!

The saying is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow on a 1 x 2 7/8 piece of Whisper White.  Add with snail across the top and Mini Dimensionals on the bottom.  Again, watch out for the part that overlaps the inside.

Use one of the Mini Library Clips on the sentiment.  Add a little bit of the Braided Linen Trim that has been unraveled at the end.

For the inside add a piece of Whisper White that is the same size as the card, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Trim a little off the side to make up for the fold.  

Tasteful Textures Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the same stamp used for the background in the lower middle.  I set the inside saying up on my Stamparatus.  Add a piece of music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper cut to 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 to the right.

It doesn't look it, but this card isn't that hard to make.  I have a video for you today!
