Case The Catalogue

July 23, 2019

Today’s card is one that I loved when I first received the Annual Catalogue but I have only just got around to creating my version.  The catalogue sample is on page 190 of the catalogue.  I embossed Grapefruit Grove card using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  After the card was embossed I used the Grapefruit Grove to add colour to the raised embossing to make the pattern “pop”.   You need to have a light touch with the ink pad or you will end up with colour on the background which will spoil the effect.   I stamped the bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set across Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I trimmed away the card from around the top of the image before I added some colour.  I used Crumb Cake Light, Bronze, Pumpkin Pie Light, Mossy Meadow Light, Granny Apple Green Combo, Calypso Coral Combo Stampin’ Blends as well as the Colour Lifter.  I stamped the greeting from the Free As A Bird stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The image panel is attached to the embossed Grapefruit Grove card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the large bird and the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using the same Stampin’ Blends as the image on the front of the card.  I fussy cut the images and attached them to the lower left hand corner.

I’m pretty happy with the way this card turned out. I think it looks like the catalogue sample,  what do you think?

Bye for now,
