Tuesday Tip…Flourish Thinlits

img_3129

Sympathy cards are never ones you like to send. Unfortunately I have had to send a few lately.  I created this card using the Flourish Thinlits Dies and coordinating Flourish Phrases stamp set.  I purchased them as a bundle and saved 10%.

Check out this quick video for some great tips for cutting the Flourish Thinlits.

*Note- I use my die brush a little differently than she did in the video…I brush over the thinlit rather than directly on the cardstock as this keeps it from ripping the detailed pieces. It works like a charm.

I cut the thinlit in both Sweet Sugarplum and Pear Pizzazz.  I attached the Pear Pizzazz negative piece to whisper white and laid the Sweet Sugarplum die cut inside. (I like puzzles and this reminds me of one.)  The cool part is you get to make another card in the opposite colors.

I embossed a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. I used the debossed side because I preferred it with the look of the inlaid card.

I used Pear Pizzazz and Sweet Sugarplum ink to stamp the sentiments and front of my envelope. I attached the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.

    1. Thank you Kelley for your kind words and taking the time to respond! I really appreciate it! Often I start out with one idea and it evolves along the way and is nothing like I originally intended to make. LOL That’s the beauty of paper crafting!
