Have you browsed through the new Mini Catalog? It is filled with fun new products and so many great ideas! I needed to make several sympathy cards and when I saw this beautiful card idea (on page 57) in the new Mini Catalog I decided to CASE it. CASE simply means to Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit.
I selectively edited a few things! Here’s the details for this slimline card:
- Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock – 7 x 8 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 for card base
- Very Vanilla – 3 3/8 x 8 3/8 heat embossed using background stamp and clear embossing powder, scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Stylish Shapes Die
- Shimmery White Cardstock – die cut Ginkgo Branch flower dies (2 large, 3 small)
- Polished Pink cardstock – die cut circle with Stylish Shapes Die
- Simply Elegant Trim – ~18 in.
The sample card in the catalog used the Chic Dies to add a textured layer behind the flowers. Instead, I used a retired stamp (En Francais), stamped it with VersaMark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the subtle texture it adds in the background.
It’s been awhile since I watercolored and I love the new Water Painters! I used Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Polished Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz to color the flowers. *Note- you do not want to pick up ink directly from the Stampin’ Pads. Just add a few drops of ink refills inside the lids of the Stamping’ Pads for a pallet to use with the water painters.
The Ginkgo Branch Bundle caught my eye right away in the new catalog! It is so different from other flower stamps and dies I have and can be used for many different occasions.
You can view the complete list of products I used to create today’s card below. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see another card I created using this bundle!
Have a great day!
