Beautiful Day

May 8, 2020

Today’s card shows off one of the designs I created for my Facebook Live this week.  We followed a tutorial by Lisa Curcio which you can find here.  She used a rectangle of designer series paper to create a different kind of focal point for your card.  I loved the idea and share it with my followers on Facebook.   Of course, I wanted to make it very user friendly for my customers, so I created a 6″ x 6″ template that they could use.  This creates two card fronts with enough pieces to decorate the inside panel. To begin my card, I cut my designer series paper pieces from the beautiful Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper and used them as a guide as to where I would put my greeting. I stamped the greeting from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  After stamping the greeting, I embossed the card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Once I embossed the Whisper White card, I attached the designer series paper pieces before attaching the whole panel to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.  I stamped one large and two small flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut them out. I also stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set three times onto scrap Whisper White card using Old Olive ink and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  I attached one small flower to the centre of the large flower using dimensionals.  I attached the leaves to the back of the flowers before attaching them to the card front.  I used dimensionals to attach the single small flower.  Lastly I added Clear Faceted Gems (unfortunately no longer available) to the centres of the flowers.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Blackberry Bliss card behind one long edge of a strip of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper before attaching it to the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the large flower from the Floral Essence stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink and stamped the flower centre using Crushed Curry ink.  I cut out the flower and attached it just above the Designer Series Paper.

This card is really gorgeous when you see it in person, I’m not sure if it looks so pretty in the photos.  I really would love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
