I received many beautiful cards for my birthday in January. Today's card was a 'stunner'. And I misplaced it! When I found it the other day, it was in a wise, secure place which wasn't with the other birthday cards. Go figure.
- STAMP SET: none
- CARD STOCK: Very Vanilla, Whisper White
- INK: none
- TOOLS: Big Shot, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Expressions Thinlits Dies (from Holiday catalog: RETIRED -- ugh), Punches: Blossom, Pansy, Boho Blossom; Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Trimmer, Small Scallop Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade
- ACCESSORIES: Basic Jewels: Pearl
Putting this card together is pretty cut and dry: cut all the pieces out and layer them as shown.
TIP: (1)To attach the LOVE Expressions Thinlit Die, place teeny little dots of Tombow liquid glue to the back side (yes, really!) and gently place it on your card. I often use tweezers to manipulate my delicate images like this one. (2) If you're going to send this card through the Post Office, be sure to place some sort of protective padding over the Pearl. I'd suggest using a piece of cardboard backing cut to the size of the card and placing it in front of the card. I'd also (overkill) tape a few layers of gauze or something soft on the cardboard where it will cover the pearl.
I would never have thought of using Whisper White and Very Vanilla together prior to seeing this card. I know I'm going to have to try it though. The combination would make a lovely wedding card. If you use this color combination, please share it with us. Just send it to me in an email and I'll post it for everyone to enjoy.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. :)
