Life is Beautiful, Yes It Is!

Hello to you!  Today I have a pretty card using the Life is Beautiful stamp set.  I keep wanting to call it Tree of Life.  I keep my stamp sets in alphabetical order.  I couldn't find it because I was looking in the T's!  I think I'm going to remember the name now.  Any way here is my card using the Life is Beautiful stamp set.

Life is Beautiful Stitched Nested Labels Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Old Olive that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is a wood sheet from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Cut a label from the Tasteful Labels dies from the center of this layer and then glue the layer to the front of the card base.  I'm talking about the wood label that is behind the Thinking of You saying.

Cut the largest Stitched Nested Label die from Whisper White.

The tree is stamped using the Stamparatus.  I set up the tree so that I could stamp the label and the inside of the card.  I have a video showing how to make this card and set up the Stamparatus.  I first set it up so that I could stamp the tree.  I put the 5 x 5 1/4 Whisper White paper up next to the right of the Stamparatus and about 1 inch down.  Now figure out where the nested label needs to go so that it stamps where you want it.  I traced around this label on my grid paper.  I was using it for a class.  This would also work well if you plan on making multiples of this card.  Stamp in Early Espresso.

Here is the video.


Stamp the leaves on the trees in Old Olive and again in Mossy Meadow.  Clean between colors and move the stamp a little so they are not exactly the same on the card.  Do the label and the inside of the card.

Stamp the bird's nest in Early Espresso.  Clean the stamp and stamp on a scrap of Whisper White in Real Red.  Cut out the bird house only.  Add on top of the brown one with a dimensional.

For the ribbon, make a line of Seal about 1 inch long down the lower center of the label.  Add the ribbon.  This is from the Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.  The seal will hold the ribbon in place.  

Cut the label for the front of the card from Whisper White using the Tasteful Labels dies.  Stamp the saying in Real Red.  Take the wood label and cut it in half.  Add to the back of the white label so that it sticks out about the same from each side.  Add this label with dimensionals.

Add a few of the gold Metallic Pearls to finish the front of the card.
