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.
I 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. I 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. 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.
Bye for now,
