All Adorned - a Case

As of today it is officially Spring although the temperature outside doesn't feel like it.  Last night the temperature was -13 degrees C.  Not only is it Spring, it is also St. Patrick's Day, a day to celebrate all things Irish.

We're also nearing the end of Sale-a-bration.

Today's card features one of the later stamp offers - All Adorned.  This stamp set was created to show case the Stamparatus.  See the Stampin' Up video below

Below is the card I created:

It's a 5" square  card with a Thick White Cardstock base, layered first with Early Espresso and then Granny Apple Green embossed with the Dot to Dot embossing folder.  The central art piece is adhered to this.

Art Piece:
Using the stamparatus, the corner stamp was used to stamp the 4 corners of a 3 3/4 by 3 3/4" piece of Blushing Bride cardstock using Blushing Bride ink. A tiny heart, was stamped in Granny Apple Green  in the space between the corner stamp.

In the center is a die cut from Eastern Medallion Thinlet Dies.  In the center of this, one of the larger images was stamped with Granny Apply Green, followed by a second image in Early Espresso

This piece was adhered to the stamped Blushing Bride piece using dimensionals.

Early Espresso was used to mat the art piece after which it was attached to an embossed piece of Granny apple Green .card stock.  This in turn is matted with Early Espresso which was added to the card base.

Rather than use the stamparatus to stamp the little heart between the corners I placed the stamp on an acrylic block and stamped the hearts between the corner pieces

After matting this piece with Early Espresso, it is adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

Inks:  Early Espresso, Granny Apple Green, Blushing Bride
