Simple Card, New Products

I ordered so much back in July for the release of the new catty, that I completely forgot about some items that I purchased. It felt like Christmas when I rediscovered them! Included in my order was the new Hi Embosslit, and the Seasonal Pieces Window Sheets.

Today's card had a very simple layout, but I think it works well since the embosslit and window sheet give it a lot of character.

Here is how I made it:

  • I started with a standard A2 card base of Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock.
  • A 2"x4.25" piece of Old Olive was attached at the bottom.
  • Next I pulled out my window sheet. TIP: The Seasonal Pieces window sheets come with a variety of patterns for Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, and more! I cut the window sheet to layer over the Old Olive. Before attaching to the card, I wrapped a piece of Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon around the top edge. TIP: I attached the window sheet using snail, just under the ribbon and underneath where the embosslit would be attached. This prevented the adhesive from showing through.
  • The taffeta ribbon was tied off near the middle of the card.
  • The new Hi Embosslit and my Big Shot were used to quickly pop out the sentiment/focal point out of Brushed Silver. It was attached to the card with dimensionals.
  • The SU Pretties Kit came out to play next. TIP: Just because the flowers start out white, doesn't mean they have to stay that way! You can use ink, Stampin' Pastels, Watercolor Pencils or Crayons, or embossing to alter them! In this case, my flower was heat embossed using Silver powder.
  • An Old Olive felt flower was attached to the Silver one using a clear rhinestone brad and the two were attached to the card using more dimensionals.
