OK – same stamp set, same dies, how can this card be so different? I couldn’t help it – these dies just called to me. I truly don’t know how SU! does it – keep coming up with new products all the time. But that’s the power of creativity and different minds working together, right? And these dies are all about flowers and nature and I’m that kind of girl. So here we go…
I’ve talked before about how much I appreciate monochromatic cards, and this is pretty similar – just a hint of color. The color comes from using a retiring product called Natural Touch Specialty Paper. It has a wood grain and a bit of a velvetty soft feel to it. And I added the very cute Bumblebee Trinket that is new in the 21-22 Annual Catalog. The sentiment comes from Quiet Meadow stamp set and is such a versatile one that this card could be used for sympathy or after surgery or get well or just plain ‘thinking of you’ kind of card. And I introduced one of the new In Colors, Evening Evergreen by inking the sentiment. The breakdown for this card:
- Basic White Thick card stock for the base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
- Natural Touch Specialty Paper 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 (2, one for inside) + envelope flap + scraps for die cuts
- Basic White 4 x 5 1/4 (2, one for inside) + scraps for die cuts
The flowers were adhered with liquid glue; the flower center the same; the Bumblebee trinket with a glue dot – all on a Basic White panel 4 x 5 1/4. This was adhered to the Natural Touch Specialty Paper with Stampin’ Seal, which then got dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
For the inside I used two Whimsy Dies to create this fun pattern on a Basic White panel – doesn’t it make it look as though the butterfly has flown everywhere? The butterfly also comes from the Meadow Dies and was adhered with liquid glue. Basic White panel to the Natural Touch Specialty Paper then into the inside of the card – done!
For the envelope, another fun butterfly from Meadow Dies out of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper and more of the same paper on the envelope flap. FINIS! Love the simplicity and the finished look.
