Hello Stamping Friends,
If you are not into fancy folds like the prior posts’ bendi card, this card with its beautiful vellum designer paper might be what you are looking to make. The bouquet of flowers has a framelit to cut it out and there is a framelit to cut the beautiful leafy edge. The ‘Thinking of You’ greeting fits perfectly on one of the stitched rectangle framelits and the Frosted Flower Embellishment with a rhinestone in the middle dresses it up.
Base: Fresh Fig, 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, Score at 4 1/4″. Cut a piece of copy paper 2 5/8″ X 5 1/2″ and place it on the front with a sticky note so you can line up your leaf edge framelit along the copy paper edge to make sure your leaf edge is cut straight. There is a lot of stress on the Big Shot to cut the leaf edge all at once so the cranking seems hard but it worked and I ran it back and forth several times to get a good cut.
Powder Pink Inside Layer: 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″
Pear Pizzaz: 2 3/8″ X 5 3/8″
Whisper White: 2 3/16″ X 5 3/16″ This is the backing for your vellum. If you don’t have vellum adhesive, use tombow glue and a sponge to ‘paint’ the glue on the back of the vellum with the sponge and the glue will not show.
Floral Romance Designer Series Paper Vellum: 2 3/16″ X 5 3/16″
Greeting: Whisper White 2″ X 2 1/2″ stamped in Fresh Fig and cut with the stitched rectangle framelit.
Bouquet: Shimmer White 3 1/2″ X 4″ stamped in Memento Black and colored with Stampin’ Blends. The shimmer of the card stock even shows up in the picture! I used Dark Old Olive on the large leaves and Light Old Olive on the smaller leaves. Dark Pink Pirouette was used on the middle flower and the little buds to look similar to the vellum DSP. Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends matched the Fresh Fig very well to color the other flowers. Rhinestones were put in the middle of the flowers and a bow was put on the base of the bouquet using the Old Olive Linen Thread.
This Wonderful Romance Stamp Set, the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies, the Floral Romance DSP and the Old Olive Linen Thread all retire June 3rd. The products are on page 11 of the Occasions catalog and there is a bundle, #150592, that gives you 10% off if you buy the stamps and framelits together. I am sad to see these products go away. The Old Olive Linen Thread is on page 39, #148811. It is just a little finer than baker’s twine and dresses up any project.
SAL, Sad At Losing this product
