My parents celebrated their 62 Wedding Anniversary last weekend. Can you imagine that? 62 years and still going strong. They are amazing! My Floral Phases stamp set and co-ordinating products were on my desk and I just had to case the card in the catalogue on page 76. I used A4 Thick Whisper White for the card base and then cut Whisper White card using the Detailed Floral Thinlit dies. You place one die with the straight edge at the top edge of the card and one with the straight edge at the bottom of the card. This leaves a plain border between the two die cut areas. These dies are almost the width of a traditional metric card, so you only get a very thin border around the outside edge, the photos in the catalogue would be on standard American sized (inches) card bases so a wider border – Didn’t spoil the affect though. I stamped the greeting from the Floral Phases stamp set onto the die cut card using Night of Navy ink and wrapped it with the Night of Navy Thick Bakers Twine and tied a bow (exactly like the one in the catalogue). The die cut card is attached to the card base using Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive. (If you use this adhesive, you really have to be quite sparing, tiny dots around the panel and leave it for a second or two to almost dry before attaching, works really well and you don’t get glue all over everything!) I added three Basic Pearls to each side of the greeting. Inside the card I stamped the border image across the bottom of the card and then stamped the floral image above it using Night of Navy ink. I also added more of the Basic Pearls between the images. It truly is gorgeous in real life, I can’t wait to use this product suite some more.
What do you think? Can you see this in your craft room stash? Bet you can.
Bye for now,
