Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.
A mainly white card today with some silver and a little lilac. A few different elements are used for this card – stamping, heat embossing, dry embossing, die cutting and a punch was also used. I don’t normally use ribbon, but it finished the card of well in this instance.
For the card base a sheet of Thick Whisper White A4 cardstock was cut in half on the short side, then a long piece was scored in half to make a tent fold card for a change. Next was some heat embossing, the Birthday Jubilee Bundle was used to stamp the sentiment and large floral swag twice in Versamark on Whisper White cardstock before being covered in Stampin’ Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. The floral swags were cut out using the die from the same set, whilst the sentiment was punched out using a 2” circle punch. More die cutting was done using Whisper White cardstock for the large rectangular die with the arch detail, which was cut twice, then the strip die was cut out using a scrap piece of Whisper White measuring 3¼” long x ¾” wide. This was cut in half and attached to the rectangle arch dies along with the heat embossed floral swags, as shown in the photo. The sentiment was positioned in the circle gap created by the two arches, attaching to the strip die overhanging into the gap. A piece of Purple Posy cardstock was cut measuring 3 7/8” x 3 5/8” and adhered to the rear of this die cut section. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut to 3 11/16” x 5½” and put into the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, then run through a Big Shot. The ribbon I used on the top and bottom was cut to size, then a smaller piece was cut and tied around in a single knot. These were then attached to the back of the dry embossing using a little tape, then attached to the card base.
