Love and Affection
I have to admit that when I first saw this in the Catalogue way back at Onstage Local I was smitten by the Love and Affection stamp set and co-ordinating products. The stamp set is gorgeous and the Designer Series paper is absolutely stunning. I haven’t lost that feeling. This card is one that I designed for my June Card Class. I started by adding a strip of the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of Whisper White card which is then attached to scored and folded Crumb Cake card. This particular piece of Designer Series Paper has copper embossing to highlight the detail of the flowers. I embossed a piece of Cucumber Crush card using one of the Floral Affection Embossing Folders. (This is a set of two small embossing folders both of which are beautiful.) The embossed card is attached across the bottom of the card front. I cut a piece of Whisper White card using one of the Layering Square Framelit Dies and stamped the greeting from the Love and Affection stamp set onto the right hand side using Night of Navy ink. I cut a Crumb Cake card with a slightly larger scalloped square from from the Layering Square Framelit Dies and attached the stamped card. Using Versamark ink I stamped the large flower onto Daffodil Delight card, the small flower onto Watermelon Wonder card and the leaves onto Cucumber Crush card. The images are embossed using the Copper Embossing Powder and then cut out by hand. I layered them onto the stamped Wisper White panel, added Basic Pearls to the centre of the flowers and attached the square panel to the card front using dimensionals. I tried to mimic the embossing folder layout with the flowers and leaves. Not sure if I succeeded but I think so. To decorate the inside of the card, I simply embossed a piece of Cucumber Crush card and attached it to the bottom of Whisper White card.
I am rather pleased with this card. What do you think? I’d love to hear.
Bye for now,
