Falling In Love

Hello, Crafters.

WAHOO! I've just hit 15,009 subscribers on YouTube! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! To say I'm thrilled is a bit of an understatement!

I appreciate YouTube isn't everyone's cup of tea, which makes this number even more fantastic. If you're a YouTuber, thanks a million!

Have you seen this fabulous ribbon in the new Spring catalogue? 

When I first saw it, I had to do a double-take because I hadn't seen it available in either catalogue. 

Then I realised it was the new Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon (page 51 Spring Catalogue) on top of the new Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim (page 179 Annual Catalogue). 

Don't you think it looks absolutely gorgeous like this? This is what inspired today's card. 

It was also a great opportunity to use the same Lace Doilies idea I used on the top of the Pack Flat Box I featured in last Sunday's video.

I started today's card with a base of Sahara Sand Cardstock (CS), a layer of Very Vanilla CS and a top layer of one of the Sahara Sand designs in the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

Using Tombow, I adhered the DSP to the Very Vanilla layer. 

I took a length of each ribbon and adhered together with a little bit of SNAIL at intervals along the back of the satin ribbon. 

I adhered at the back of the card, just under halfway down. Using Tombow, I adhered this layer to the card base. 

Using the Botanical Builder Framelits, I die cut a flower and a flower centre in Very Vanilla CS and adhered the two together.

I adhered the doily in position, and then adhered the flower in the centre. 

I finished my flower off by adhering a Falling In Love Embellishment in the centre.

Using Sahara Sand Ink, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and then quickly dipped it into my box of Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. 

I adhered it to my card front using Dimensionals.

I added a layer of Very Vanilla CS insde and stamped a sentiment and flower from the Falling for You Stamp set using Sahara Sand Ink. 

The final step was to add some Rhinestones to the front sentiment.

I think this is going to be my favourite Suite! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Like I said, Wow!!!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. Like you, I love all the products I've used here and I love SU's idea with the ribbon, too! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

    1. Hi, Kaye. The ribbons look brilliant together don't they. I was working on another project today and put the ribbons the other way round i.e the Satin Ribbon at the bottom and the Lace Trim on top and it looked brilliant that way round too! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
