For My Sister
My sister celebrated her birthday in April and I just realised I haven’t shared this card with you. I was inspired by this sketch on Pinterest to create this card.
I started by adding a piece of Designer Series Paper from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack (retired) to scored and folded Basic Black card. I don’t know about you but I buy Designer Series Paper and then don’t use it, for whatever reason and suddenly we are looking at a new catalogue and I have mountains of Designer Series Paper to use up. So this is a start. I stamped the leaf image from the Wild About You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Mint Macaron ink. I added the flowers using Crushed Curry ink. This stamp set is photopolymer and it makes it so easy to do two-step stamping. I added the image panel to Mint Macaron card which has one short end cut using the Scalloped Square Framelit Die (retired but you could use the Layering Squares Framelit Dies). I wrapped the panel with Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (retired) and tied a knot before attaching it to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set (again retired) onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out using the Large Oval Punch (retired but you could use the new Layered Ovals Framelit Dies). The greeting is attached to a Basic Black Scallop Oval (retired but again you could use the Layering Ovals Framelit Dies) and then the card front using a dimensional under the right hand side so that it could partially sit over the image panel.
Inside the card I stamped the leaf and flower images to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using the same Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry inks.
Oh, my goodness, I didn’t realise how many of my favourite things have retired with the launch of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue. However, you can see how gorgeous this stamp set is and how easily you could recreate this card using new product.
Bye for now,
