Same but Different

March 29, 2019

I cased today’s card from Carolyn King and after I created it, I decided to do a little upgrade.  Soo, the first card has a piece of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper attached to Poppy Parade card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.  I cut Whisper White card using one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and stamped the greeting from the Needle and Thread stamp set using Poppy Parade ink before attaching it to the card front.  I cut the banner from Blushing Bride card using the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and attached it to the Whisper White rectangle.  I stamped the double leaf image from the Needle and Thread stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die.  The leaf image is attached over the Blushing Bride banner. I stamped the large flower onto scrap Whisper White card using Blushing Bride ink, cut it out using the co-ordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die and attached it over the leaf image using a couple of dimensionals. I stamped the small flower onto scrap Whisper White card using Poppy Parade ink, cut it out using the co-ordinating die and attached it to the centre of the large flower using a couple of dimensionals.  I cut the open leaf image twice from Old Olive card using the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die.  The leaves are attached over the stamped leaf and under the large flower using Multipurpose Glue.  Lastly I stamped the small butterfly from the Needle and Thread stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card and used the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch it out.  I attached the butterfly to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot in the centre and 1/2 Mini Dimensional under each wing.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large flower onto the lower left hand corner using Poppy Parade ink.  I stamped the double leaf image around the flower using Old Olive ink.

I was pretty pleased with the end result for this card, so a big thank you to Carolyn King for the inspiration.  However, I decided to recreate the card once more with a couple of small extras.  This time I used the die in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies to decorate the Poppy Parade card and I did use a different paper from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper.  The rest of the card is exactly the same, except for the addition of one of the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons to the centre of the small Poppy Parade flower.

I really love the way the Poppy Parade card makes the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper pop off the page, don’t you?  Let me know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
