To begin with, I started by running through the die-cutting machine one of the edger dies from the Lacey Edgers 1 set to die-cut 6X out of 2 different patterned papers from the Just a Little Lovely 6X6 paper pad. Once, I was done with all 6 die-cuttings edger pieces, I adhered the backing of them to an A2 white card panel with double-sided tape which, I trimmed a little smaller than a standard size A2 card base as you can see in the picture. Right after, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Bow Die to die cut it out of gold card stock. Once, all die-cuttings to create the bow were done, I adhered them all together with strong adhesive and I set it aside. In the meantime, I cut a strip of the same gold card stock and I adhered with double-sided tape the backing of it right in the center of the first edge followed for the bow that I had previously die-cut as you can see in the picture above. Lastly, to finish the card panel off, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Hanging Florals Stamp Set with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder and the card panel was done.
For the second card, I stamped with WOW! Embossing Ink Pad in a piece of white card stock the floral cluster from the Hanging Florals Stamp Set and I colored the flowers and leaves with Prismacolor Colored Pencils in Peach and Green tones as you can see in the picture above. Once, I was done pencil coloring the cluster, I ran the cluster along Hanging Florals Die Set though the die-cutting machine to die-cut it out of the white card stock and right after that, I adhered the backing of the hanging floral cluster to a card panel that I had previously trimmed a little smaller than an A2 size card base. By the way the card panel shown on this example was a patterned paper from the Let your Heart Decide 6X6 paper pad. In the meantime, I also gold heat embossed, colored and die-cut the little bow included in the same stamp set which, I adhered it with foam mounting tape to add a little dimension. Lastly, to finish the card panel off I stamped and gold heat embossed two sentiments from the same Hanging Florals Stamp Set that complemented each other thus creating a prettier encouragement sentiment!
Right afterwards, to finish the both examples off, I adhered each of the card panels backings with foam mounting tape to two A2 size top folding white card bases that I had previously scored and folded. So, that’s all for today friends, I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the challenge a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts.
