Pink & Main and Glue Dots Blog Hop

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the Pink & Main and Glue Dots Blog Hop!

This cute set of cards is the perfect touch to go along with a birthday gift, or just because!  With Glue Dots® and Pink & Main, there is no end to the cards you can make!

Here are the details:

Made By: Amanda Tibbitts
Time: about 1.5 Hours
Level: Intermediate
Size: Six A2 Cards
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:


Glue Dots® Glue Lines
Glue Dots® Micro Dots
Glue Dots® Permanent Tape Runner


Baby wipes or stamp cleaner
Mini MISTI or an acrylic block 
6 110lb cardstock card bases cut at 4 ¼” x 8 ½”
6 patterned cardstocks cut at 4” x 5 ½”
Scraps of ivory cardstock to do the stamping
6 envelopes
6 Die Cut Flowers at 3”
Washi Tape
Faux self-adhesive pearls
Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo and ink blending tool
Clear Box


Cuttlebug or other manual die cutting machine
Bone Folder


Step 1:

Add some distress ink to each of the petals on your die cut flower, as well as the center, and anywhere else you want.  Use the Glue Dots® to adhere the flower pieces together.  Set these aside.

Step 2:

Fold the 4 ¼” x 8 ½” card bases in half and use the bone folder to really crease them.  When using heavier paper you have to really crease them to make them crisp!

Step 3:

On the 4” x 5 ½” patterned cardstock, measure a length of ribbon that will reach about ½” up the panel.  Use a completed flower to make sure it reaches.  Cut this piece so a bit runs over the bottom edge.  Use a Glue Dots® Glue Line on the backside in the middle of the patterned cardstock.  Stick the ribbon that is a little longer than the panel to the glue line.  Wrap it around the front of the panel, adding two more glue lines to the ribbon.  Stick it down to the patterned panel. Then run some Glue Dots® Tape Runner around the back of the patterned panel and adhere it to a folded card base.  With a bit more ribbon, tie a not and trim the ends on an angle to somewhat mimic a leaf shape. Use Glue Dots® Micro Dots to glue this to the ribbon stem.  Place a finished flower over the top to make sure the leaves get in the right spot!  Once you’ve placed the leaves, glue the flower to the cardstock with a combo of Glue Dots® Tape Runner and glue lines. 

Step 4:

With the MISTI, and the Pink & Main stamps, stamp the sentiments from the super cute Stitched Greeting set with the Distress Oxide Ink. 

Step 5:

With the coordinating dies and a piece of washi tape, line up the die you want to use for each sentiment and run it through the Cuttlebug.

Step 6:

Add some distress ink to the edge of each sentiment and use the Glue Dots® Glue Lines to glue to the bottom of the ribbon stem.

Step 7:

With the faux pearls, add two in the left top corner.

Step 8:

Add an envelope to each card and fill the clear box with the cards and tie the twine around the box. 

This set is fairly quick to put together and looks so cute!  Who doesn’t love blank cards to use?!
