I hope you've had a lovely weekend and are all set for the
week ahead! Today I fancied doing some fussy cutting and I
think this has to be one of the most fussiest pieces of fussy
cutting I've ever done! LOL!
I found it very relaxing, and I'm sure I could quite happily
spend an evening just fussy cutting! The flowers are from
one of the designs from the Share What You Love Designer
Series Paper (DSP).
Before I adhered the flowers to a Whisper White Stitched Shape
oval, I stamped the oval with a splattered stamp from The Touches
of Textures Stamp Set, which I'm really pleased is being carried
forward to the next annual catalogue.
For the splatter I used Rich Razzleberry Ink that I'd stamped off
three times, and therefore used fourth generation stamping. The
splatter is visible in places and does what I wanted it to do
i.e. to take the edge off the starkness of the Whisper
White Cardstock (CS).
I dry-embossed the Rich Razzleberry layer behind the the white
oval using our fabulous Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing
Folder. This was one of the gifts available during Sale-a-bration
earlier this year, but I really thrilled that it has been carried
forward to the new Annual Catalogue.
I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Confetti
Celebration Stamp Set, and the butterfly from the Flying Home
Stamp Set. Unfortunately, both these stamp sets will be
retiring on 31st May 2018.
I finished the front of the card by adding three pearls around the
flowers and one each end of the sentiment. The other finishing
touch was a pretty bow made with the luscious new Velvet Rich
Razzleberry Ribbon, which was just one of the gifts I received
when I went to CentreStage at the beginning of April!
To decorate the inside of the card, I added a layer of Whisper
White CS, and adhered a small section of the same image I'd
fussy cut from the Share What You Love DSP. As I've been
writing this, I've had another idea how I can use this fussy cut floral
bouquet - maybe I'll do it in time for tomorrow's blog - time will tell!
That's it from me today. I hope you have a lovely Monday, and
until tomorrow, happy crafting!
