Hi Folks! In yesterday’s post I shared two cards but gave instructions for only one… so today you get full disclosure on Card #2 <:O). Funny me, right? So here’s the card again..,.
One of the things about this particular stamp and die set is the variety, how very different we can create from one bundle. To create this wreath I stamped with Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. TIP: To be certain I stayed in a circle, I had used a 2 1/4″ circle punch to pop out a circle. I laid that on the Whisper White panel and stamped around the edge of it …. perfect for creating this wreath! On a Whisper White scrap I stamped several of the triple flowers in both Crumb Cake and Real Read inks and die cut them with the dies from the coordinating Envelopes dies. I placed them around the wreath where I wanted and adhered some with liquid glue and some with dimensionals. To add some sparkle I added the lovely Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to many of the floral centers. then added three gold bows using the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, attaching them with liquid glue. I took another length of the gold trim and wrapped it around the wreath, encircling some of the flowers, using liquid glue under the raised flowers to adhere.
I then took a strip of the beautiful Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered it to the lower portion with liquid glue. Over this is a die cut in Granny Apple Green from the Painted Labels dies. This I adhered with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White scrap and die cut it with the Ornate Frames Dies. This was put on dimensionals and voila! the card front just needs the layering panels: adhere to Granny Apple Green with liquid glue; then this panel is put on dimensionals and goes on the Crumb Cake card base. OH! Almost forgot a VERY IMPORTANT Step…..use the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to emboss the front of the card, spritzing it lightly with water to get a good emboss.
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on the Whisper White panel then adhered a couple of the leftover die cut flowers. The panel was adhered to Granny Apple Green cs, then to the inside Crumb Cake card base. Card is complete!
For the envelope I took a piece of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and adhered it to the envelope flap, then die cut it with one of the wonderful edges curved perfectly for envelopes – hence Envelopes Dies!!! This gives that final elegant appearance and completes your card.
This is such a neat bundle – the Ornamental Envelopes. 10% off when purchasing the stamp set and dies as a bundle. See pg 40 in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini catalog by clicking the link…
