Today begins the July – December Mini Catalog PLUS Sale-a-bration. Do you have your lists ready to go? Even after doing the preorder, which is available for demonstrators, I still have a lengthy wish list.
The project I am sharing today is a mix of Die, Fussy Cutting, Coloring, and one little Stamp. That is not the normal card I share. But I hope you love it.
It is really difficult for me to pick the main point on this card. But I have decided to go with the Die. It is the Split Card Textures Dies. There are two different dies in the set. And they are stand alone dies in the Annual Catalog. They do not pair with a stamp set. Plus they can be used in a variety of ways.
The sample in the catalog on page 86 shows a “layer” piece of probably 4 X 5 1/4 with the right side cut using the die. For my card, and because I was using a Specialty Paper, I cut an angled piece and then only die cut that piece. Either works and gives totally different looks. Additionally, the little squares can all be pushed out I simply opted to keep most of them to show off the Specialty Paper.
As mentioned above, I used a Specialty Paper for the Die cut piece. It is the Gold & Rose Gold 6X6 Metallic Specialty Paper. The one I used is the Rose Gold as it pairs with the rose in the colored floral arrangement.
Speaking of the floral part, it may look familiar to you. This is a section of the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper. Cutting a 6X6 piece of one of the patterns, I colored each of the floral arrangements using Stampin’ Blends. One of those was used about two weeks ago. You can see that card HERE. As with the first card, I fussy cut the flowers and then applied it to the edge of the cardstock. On this version I left the part of the flowers which overlap the Rose Gold loose for a bit of dimension.
Stamps & Finishes
The lone stamp on this card is the sentiment. It is from the Color & Contours stamp set. With the boldness of the Rose Gold die cut layer and the pretty floral, the sentiment was left a little simpler. Since it is an Amazing sentiment (LOL) it is fine by itself.
For the finishing touch there needs to be a bit of bling. In this case I used a single bling. The 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds fit the bill. Just a bit of sparkly pink to finish everything off.
