For today's blog I wanted to play with Quite Curvy from the new January - June 2021 mini catalog. I love this set! It is quite unique - it is so curvy and creates unique and striking images.
I paired it with Forever Greenery designer series paper, and I think it goes together beautifully! Do you agree?
The Forever Greenery DSP is both the background spotted piece, and the strip in the middle with foliage. The ivy strip, the birds, and the sentiment come from Quite Curvy - I used both the stamps and the dies. I also added a half circle of vellum for a little more interest.
I hope you like it!
Ingredients: Quite Curvy bundle (stamps and dies) and Layering Circles dies; Forever Greenery DSP, thick white cardstock, pear pizzazz, and vellum; tuxedo black ink; dark and light misty moonlight, dark and light daffodil delight, dark and light highland heather, and dark and light soft suede Stampin' Blends; liquid glue and Stampin' Dimensionals; sponge; trimmer; and Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine.
Recipe: Cut a piece of thick white cardstock in half vertically, score in half, and fold to create the card base. Cut the shown piece of DSP just one tick smaller on both sides (1/16" smaller) and attach to the card front with liquid glue. Cut the shown strip of DSP 3x5.5" (cut the 5.5 side one tick smaller on the trimmer, 1/16" smaller). Attach with liquid glue in the center of the card base.
Cut a piece of vellum with the largest layering circle die and cut it in half with the trimmer. Place some glue on a scrap piece or your silicone sheet, and lightly spread it evenly over the vellum half circle with the sponge, and attach to the right side of the DSP in the middle vertically. If you sponge it on in a thin layer and rub with your finger over it, the glue will not show through the vellum - cool trick.
Stamp the ivy in tuxedo black on pear pizzazz cardstock. Cut out with the die and attach to the card as shown with liquid glue.
Stamp the birds in tuxedo black on white cardstock. Color with Stampin' Blends. Cut out with the dies. Attach the birds to the ivy with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Stamp the sentiment on the vellum.
