Beautifully Penned - Simple Layout - Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop - Saleabration

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Crafty Collaborations Group and we are showcasing some of the items on offer in the Sale-A-Bration brochure which is available during August and September. For every £45 spent, you earn 1 FREE item from the brochure, what's not to love about FREE haha? The card that I have made is using the Beautifully Penned designer series paper which co-ordinates beautifully with the Hand-Penned Petals Suite in the annual catalogue.

There is a video tutorial on my YouTube channel showing how I made these cards, click on the link below

Video Tutorial


1 piece of basic grey card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 3/4" x 4 1/4", 1 piece 2 1/4" x 3 1/2", a 2 1/2" circle
Biggest Wish stamp set
Hand Penned Petals stamp set
Basic grey ink
Multipurpose adhesive
Layering circle dies (or a punch)
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Paper snips
Bone folder


On the long side score the basic grey at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the largest piece of dsp to the card front, then layer the next size to the right hand side leaving an equal gap top and bottom. Then lay the next size to the left hand size leaving equal borders on 3 sides.

Select a section of the floral dsp that you like and die cut/or punch out and add to the card front with dimensionals to the left side of the card overlapping all three layers of dsp as shown in the picture.

Stamp the sentiment on the small strip and tuck in under the circle and lining up with the outer edges of the dsp, trim with paper snips if needed.

Stamp the large floral image on the remaining white layer and then add to the inside of the card.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try, you could use this layout for any type of card and with any colour or dsp combination, the opportunities are endless, go on, give it a try.
