…for Cardz 4 Galz Design Team, Hand Stamped Sentiments #334 and Shopping Our Stash # 415…
I’m using the Beautifully Braided Bundle today and making a thank-you card. And, the bundle can be found in the Mini Catalog and my online store. The Bundle contains a stamp set and border punch. While making this card, I participated in challenges with Cardz 4 Gals, Hand Stamped Sentiments and Shopping Our Stash.
I began this card by making a base with 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches of Roco Rose cardstock, scored at 4 1/4 inches. Then, I adhered a 4 x 5 1/4 inches layer of Old Olive cardstock on top of the card, using SNAIL adhesive. Next, I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped the large flower image onto 3 5/8 x 4 5/8 inches of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. (You may remember I used this in a previous post) Afterwards, I colored the image with Stampin’ Blend Combos-Old Olive and Roco Rose.
Moving along, I used the 3 1/4 x 2 inches rectangle from the Stitched So Softly dies and cut out a portion of the main image. Also, I used the 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches stitched rectangle die and cut a layer from Roco Rose cardstock. Then, I used SNAIL adhesive to attach the two layers together. Next, I adhered the main colored layer to the card with SNAIL adhesive. Afterwards, I adhered the smaller colored layer to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And, I added a sentiment from the Beautifully Braided Bundle stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to the lower edge of the smaller image.
Next, I cut a 4 1/4 inches border out of Old Olive cardstock using the punch in the Beautifully Braided Bundle. Then, I adhered it to the lower part of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue Adhesive. Finally, I added three of In Color Faceted Dots (Roco Rose) to the card front.
To the inside of the card, I adhered a 4 x 5 1/4 inches layer of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper using SNAIL adhesive. Then, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped a sentiment and large flowers from the Beautifully Braided Bundle. Next, I used the Old Olive and Roco Rose Combo Stampin Blends to color the image. Finally, I added two In Color Faceted Dots around the stamped image.
I hope you enjoy the Beautifully Braided Bundle as much as I do!
