Here's To Strong Women ~ Encouragement Card

I made this card just recently for a gorgeous family member of mine who is one of the strongest women I know!
I thought she could really do with a reminder of just how awesome she is and so I made her this! I love that Stampin' Up! have some 'everyday' themed sets with awesome sentiments like this one 'You've Got This Girl'.

I combined this with believe it or not, some Christmas paper!
This paper is from the Feels Like Frost 6x6 DSP stack which I have used a Sponge Brayer with some Coastal Cabana ink to get it this gorgeous colour (coastal cabana is one of my favourites).
I love altering DSP to make it really individual.
I have also used the gorgeous die from the Budding Blooms die set to cut a heap of these gorgeous flowers in Vellum which I have centred with the beautiful Noble Peacock rhinestones.
I love vellum for adding a little bit of something to coordinate with any colour combo!
Here are the steps I have used to create this card: 
Step 1: I have cut a standard sized card base that is top folding from Basic Black.
Step 2: I then cut a card layer from Whisper White 1/8'' smaller than the card base.
Step 3: I have cut a card layer from the Feels Like Frost DSP 1/8'' smaller than the Whisper White. Before adhering this to the Whisper White layer, I have sponged over the top of this with Coastal Cabana ink using a sponge brayer. I have then adhered this to the Whisper White and then adhered these to the card base.
Step 4: I have now cut a Stitched Rectangle from Basic Black cardstock. I have used one that looked good size wise with my card base (A4 sizing), but you could use whichever size you like. I then cut a piece of Silver Glimmer to be 1/8'' larger on all sides as a layer. I have adhered these together with Glue Dots.
Step 5: I then stamped my 'You've Got This Girl' on Whisper White cardstock scrap using Versamark ink and my Shimmery Black embossing powder. I have then used the heat tool to heat emboss this and fussy cut around this sentiment with my paper snips.
Step 6: I have now taken some scrap of Vellum cardstock and my Budding Blooms dies and cut out ten vellum flowers, set these aside.
Step 7: Now cut a length of Denim ribbon to about 30cm, and I have used glue dots to adhere this layering back and forth twice to your Basic Black stitched rectangle.
Step 8: You can now adhere your fussy cut sentiment with Black Stampin' Dimensionals over the top of the ribbon.
Step 9: I now adhered my Stitched Rectangle/Silver Glimmer piece to the card base  with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Step 10: I chose three star felt embellishment from the Follow You Art Embellishment kit and used Glue Dots to adhere to the card where shown above.
Step 11. To embellish lastly I have added the Vellum flowers to the card scattered in the top left and bottom right with Glue Dots and added the pink and purple rhinestones from the Noble Peacock rhinestone set.
Step 12: If you like you can add some spritzes of Wink of Stella to add some more shine, but this is totally optional.

Here's a close up of the finished card where you can see just how gorgeous those flowers look and all the added shimmer and shine. I really love the texture that the denim ribbon adds also. It's a lot of fun!


I have also decorated the inside with a layer of Coastal Cabana and then Whisper White, adding a simple sentiment 'Here's to Strong Women' and embellished with a couple more vellum flowers with rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed this look at a little everyday card I made for a very special lady who is dear to my heart and always will be.
