Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share a totally amazing card with you. If you have grandchildren or any little one’s in your family … they are going to fall in love with this card. This card highlights the Nuts and Bolts stamp set. I’ll also be sharing the dimensions and step by step directions so you can create this card with ease!

  • Cut and score Basic White card base. Fold in half.
  • Cut Pale Papaya Cardstock to 4” x 5.25”
  • Using the flower robot stamp, ink the flower gear image only in Pale Papaya ink on the Pale Papaya card stock. Use a post-it note to mask off the robot if needed. Stamp gear flower randomly in background. Mount to card front.
  • Using the flower robot stamp, Ink and stamp the flower gear image 3 times in Pale Papaya ink on the Pale Papaya card stock.
  • Using the Strawberry Builder punch (flower image), punch out all three of the stamped flower gears. Curl petal edges slightly with fingers or bone folder. Add an iridescent rhinestone to each punched flower center. Set aside.
