It’s absolutely beautiful here today…actually feels spring like. Of course, last week this same time we were experiencing subzero temps. These weather patterns are crazy! Zoe is pestering me to go for a walk, bringing me every toy in her box while I’m sitting here at my computer trying to post this afternoon. She will probably win…
Before I head out for a walk with Zoe, I thought I’d pop in and show you this card.
It uses one of my favorite new tools from the Celebrate the Everyday catalog…the Fringe Scissors. You can make fringe, of course, but also grass and especially cute flowers with them. I’ll post some flowers later this week. I’ve gone on a flower binge between the spring flower wreath, the spiral flower die and now these fringe scissors.
Here’s the Stuff ‘n Digits for this card…
- Paper: Whisper White cardstock, Silver Fancy Foil Vellum, Silver Foil, Poppy Parade and Daffadil Delight
- Stamps: Happy Watercolor and the sentiment is from Regarding Dahlias
- Ink: StazOn Black and Bashful Blue
- Embellishments: Silver Baker’s Twine
- 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base
- 4 x 5 1.4″ Vellum layer
- 3 x 4 1/2″ Whisper White layer
- 1 3/4 x 4 1/2″ Silver Foil, fringed
To make the flower 3-D at the bloom, stamp twice on poppy parade and once on Daffadil Delight and fussy cut one full bloom and one partial bloom. Stamp the whole flower on the small Whisper White layer, add the fussy cut, full bloom with dimensionals over the stamped bloom, and then the partial bloom with dimensionals on top of that layer. Fussy cut the center and add with a dimensional to the center. Pretty, yes?
Hope you are inspired to give this card and technique a try. Once I post the fringe flower, you are going to have to have the Fringe Scissors.
Here is your “B-ism” for today: “It’s not that I’m stubborn, it’s just my way is better!”
I’m way past just inky fingers right now…
