Simply Fabulous

February 26, 2014

Last year at convention I received the Simply Fabulous Simply Sent kit for free.  I love the design of the beautiful laser cut card but wanted to use it in a different way than suggested in the kit.  Today my thoughts and ideas finally came together and this is what I created.

001I stamped the greeting “Fabulous is what you are” from the Million and One stamp set  (another convention freebie) diagonally across the centre of the card using Strawberry Slush ink.  Then I cut a custom sized card to attach the stamped piece to (14.8cm x 22.8cm, scored on the long side at 11.4cm).  I cut Pistachio Pudding card using the Little Leaves Sizzlet and attached the leaves to the upper left and lower right hand corners of the card.  I did trim the stem and actually cut it up a little so that I could place the leaves closer together.  004I stamped the flower from the Petite Petals stamp set onto Whisper White card using Strawberry Slush ink six times and punched them out with the matching Petite Petals Punch.  I gave the flowers a slightly cupped shape and attached them to the card front using Glue Dots.  I added large Basic Pearls to the centre of each flower.

To decorate the inside of the card I cut another set of leaves from Pistachio Pudding card using the Little Leaves Sizzlit and attached them to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card. 002 I embossed a strip of Whisper White card using the Fancy Fan embossing folder and attached a narrow strip of Strawberry Slush card which has been punched on one long edge using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I attached this to the Whisper White card over the leaves and attached another flower created the same as the ones on the front of the card.

I am quite excited by how gorgeous this card looks.  The laser cut cards in this Simply Sent kit are really lovely and make a gorgeous addition to the card front.  In fact I was so happy that I created another three cards using different colours, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloup.  I still have four of these laser cut cards and all the embellishments and envelopes left in the kit waiting for me to “play” another day.

003I’d love to hear what you think of this set of cards.

Bye for now,

Kris
