Here is my card - my entry into the international blog highlights contest and hop. It uses Ornate Thanks photopolymer stamps, Fine Art Floral DSP, and Golden Garden DSP.
Ornate Thanks is such a beautiful set with fantastic sayings. Here I used just the large Thanks stamp, but it comes with many stamps. I cut it with a Tasteful Labels die, and layered it on another Tasteful Labels die.
I cut a piece of the Golden Garden Acetate Specialty Paper with the largest of the Layering Circles. I also wrapped a piece of white dotted tulle ribbon around a piece of Fine Art Floral DSP (my favorite designer series paper!) and tied a double bow. A few added basic pearls and I was done!
Please remember to vote for me here!
Ingredients: Ornate Thanks; basic gray ink; Basic White, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay cardstocks; Fine Art Floral DSP and Golden Garden Acetate Specialty paper; Tasteful Labels and Layering Circles dies; basic pearls; white polka dot tulle ribbon; liquid glue or Stampin' Seal, and Stampin' dimensionals; trimmer; paper snips; and Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine (Big Boss).
Recipe: Cut a piece of pool party cardstock in half horizontally, score in half again, and fold to create a usual 5.5x4.25" card base. Cut a piece of Fine Art Floral dsp to 5x3.75". Cut a piece of white polka dot tulle ribbon, wrap around the dsp and tie a double bow, and attach the dsp and ribbon to the card base using liquid glue or seal.
Using the Big Boss and the largest layering circle, cut a piece from the Golden Garden acetate specialty paper, lining up the pattern as you like. Run a strip of liquid glue or seal across the center of the acetate and attach above the ribbon. Stamp THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set on basic white, and cut out with the Big Boss and a Tasteful Labels die. Cut a larger die with the Big Boss from Bermuda Bay cardstock. Using Stampin' dimensionals, attach the sentiment to the middle of the acetate, covering the strip of adhesive. Add three basic pearls to the sentiment and one in each corner of the DSP.
I hope you like it. If you try it please tag me so that I can see it. Thanks for spending some time with me!
