It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… packages under the tree now means I did some wrapping yesterday! Ha – a bit more to do but feeling good about where I am in the process right now. How about you – you ready? Don’t wait, don’t hesitate…

Today’s card is made with new products available to customers beginning Jan 5, 2021. This is called Art Gallery & Floral Gallery Dies. It’s part of a suite that includes a 3D Embossing Folder that is awesome, some super ribbon, Gilded Leafing (which I haven’t played with yet!), Heat & Stick powder to adhere the leafing, and some incredible Golden Garden acetate & Fine Art Floral DSP. As I mentioned, the only product I haven’s used yet is the Gilded Leafing – so guess that’s on my ‘to do’ list, but maybe not today!

Art Gallery #2 – 1

I’ve used two coordinating papers from the Fine Art Floral DSP to create a fun background for the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set. The larger piece was adhered directly to the Thick Whisper White card base. My next step was to stamp the flower on Whisper White card stock in Merry Merlot, then the 2nd step stamp in Rococco Rose. I know, interesting combination… and the Rococco Rose doesn’t show much, which is ok. I then stamped the leaves & stem (one stamp) in Old Olive ink and die cut them both at the same time with the Floral Gallery Dies. I then die cut a second piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP using the third from largest die in Rectangle Stitched Dies. I adhered this stitched rectangle to a slightly larger panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with liquid glue. This was attached to the floral card base with liquid glue. I adhered the flower with dimensionals to this panel, then the leaves/ stem with liquid glue, slipping it under the flower just a bit. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut it with one of the dies in the Floral Gallery Dies. Don’t you love the fun edge? I adhered it with dimensionals, trimmed the end, added three Pearl Basic Jewels and called the front done.

For the inside of the card, I used the outline from the stitched rectangle die cut and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I love this effect ~ it brings the colors of the front to the inside and creates boundaries as well. For the envelope I kept it very simple. I cut another piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP that coordinated with the two front DSP panels and adhered that with liquid glue to the flap. Here’s abetter photo.
