Hello Stamping Friends,
Here in Castle Rock, CO we are getting another snow storm so our lawns should look awesome come spring! It makes for a wonderful day to create cards if you don’t have to punch a time clock!
At club this past month I actually had a quick and simple birthday card that took less than an hour to make but was stunning. Take a look:
Base: Petal Pink 4 1/4 X 11 scored at 5 1/2″
Layer: Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″; Cut an oval from the middle of the DSP (use this cut out to cut in half for the inside). I used the Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits.
Frame: Whisper White 5 1/4 X 4 (make 2) Use the Heirloom Frames Die to cut an oval frame and then emboss the cut out frame with the matching Embossing Folder. The products come in a set so you get both the dies and the embossing folders in the set and the set includes both an oval frame and a square frame.
Sponge the frame ever so lightly with Petal Pink ink.
Adhere the Magnolia layer to the base after cutting out the oval center and then stamp the sentiment using the Painted Glass stamp set. By using the Stamparatus you can stamp it and then restamp it to get a nice dark black sentiment.
A magnolia flower with a bud is fussy cut from the DSP being careful to leave a nice edge of black around the flowers. Use a black marker to enhance the black border if needed. Adhere to the frame with glue dots and adhere to the pink oval with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
The ribbon is 6″ of 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in Petal Pink.
The inside sentiment is from the stamp set Stitched All Around.
Add a few Pearl Basic Jewels and you are done.
All the products used above can be purchased at my online store. Just click on little SAL waving from the computer.
Thanks for stopping by.
