40th Celebrations

Hope you have all had a good Christmas and are enjoying the lull between now and the New Year. I am in crafting mode as all other work on hold. As promised to self I am busy sorting stamps so stay posted as there will be some bargains coming soon. And that’s not even a New Years Resolution!!

In between time I have been playing – serious play- with the new So in Love Bundle. It is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue available for order  January 4th. (If you don’t have your copy yet and would like one just contact me)

I had an order for a 40th Birshiny-so-in-lovethday card and knew this delicate set would suit just perfectly.

My card base was  Whisper White, then a layer of Blushing Bride, followed by  Whisper White CS with a layer of Falling in Love DSP across the bottom two thirds. I then ran this through the Big Shot with the new Falling Petals Textured EF – mind you I think they look like hearts, not petals. The little hearts suited my card perfectly.

I cut the flowers from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, with the So Detailed Thinlit Die making sure I had the glitter side down on my cutting plate with the die on the backing paper. This way the cut works best and I had no trouble with the detailed cutting.

There is a thick border section to the die that I placed on my join and covered with White  Organza ribbon.

Using the Larinside-sio-in-lovege Number Framelits I glued a Pretty In Pink CS one over a Whisper White CS One, setting just off center, to give a shadow effect then coloured them in Wink of Stella Clear.  These were popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals, as was the retired sentiment.

To complete the front of the card card I added a tiny heart from the Owl Builder to the front of the bow.

Inside I again used the So Detailed Thinlit Die  as an embossing folder this time,(Technique Treats #11) .

To finish the card I highlighted the embossing with Wink of Stella,  added my verse and card complete.

Hope you enjoy it.  Just one of the may delights that are in the new catalogue. Stay tuned for more ideas coming soon.

Stay Safe Naomi.
