Stampin' Up! Happy Hour, Cheers Note card

Good Morning Friends!

Cheers to you, it's 5 O'Clock somewhere, right?  :)  This morning I'm sharing a note card that I'm doing with my private classes this month.

I love the Stampin' Up! note cards.  They are on page 160 of the idea book and catalog.  You get 20 of them for only $5.95.  They are sized 3 1/2" x 5" and come pre cut and scored with envelopes.

I like to take them as a starting point for new stampers, and show how easy it is to just layer on top.  Sometimes the idea of slicing into a piece of paper to make a card is overwhelming for new stampers, so this is a way to ease on into card making. :)

Base: Note card and Envelope (sized 3 1/2” x 5”) ~ page 160
Layer 2: Rich Razzleberry Cardstock 4 7/8” x 3 5/8”
Layer 3: Summer Smooches Designer Paper 3 5/8” x 2 1/4” 
Layer 4: 1/4” stitched grosgrain ribbon, razzleberry (two 4” pieces)
Layer 5: 2 3/8 x 2 5/8 Old Olive Card Stock
Layer 6:  2 1/4” x 2 1/2” whisper white card stock

Step 1:  Grab a precut note card and envelope out of the package and set aside.  (attaching to the base layer is the LAST step).
Step 2: Attach the Summer Smooch Designer paper to the bottom of the Rich Razzleberry cardstock using tombo multipurpose adhesive. 
Step 3: Use two glue dots to attach the ribbon to the back side of the card. 
Step 4: Tie the ribbon on to the left hand side of the card front.
Step 5:  Using the rich razzleberry ink pad, stamp the “cheers” sentiment, and then the wine glass image on to your cardstock. 
Step 6: Use the old olive marker to ink up the umbrella image and stamp so it’s inside your drink. J
Step 7: Attach the white layer with the stamped images to the old olive layer.  To attach the old olive layer to the purple, use 4 dimensionals
Step 8:  using “green glue” attach the card to the base.
