Do you like leftovers? Not food leftovers, but papercrafting leftovers. A few weeks ago, I posted this card on my blog. I had a few leftovers from that card and decided to re-use some of them for today's card. The Soft Sea Foam card base and the Stitched Nested Labels Die are the two leftovers that I paired with Whisper White Cardstock and Gold Foil Sheets.
The two oval dies (scalloped Oval Layering and Stitched Shapes) fit perfectly on the Stitched Nested Labels Die. I used the small oak leaf from the Nature's Roots Dies, to cutout the center of the Gold Foil oval.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock. Place inside the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Wrap about a 4 1/2" piece of the 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the middle and secure on the back with Glue Dots.
Second Layer: Place a Stitched Nested Labels Die on a scrap of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Attach to the First Layer with Dimensionals.
Third Layer: Place a scalloped Oval Layering Die on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Attach to the Second Layer.
Fourth Layer: Place an oval Stitched Shapes Die on a scrap of Gold Foil Paper and the small oak leaf from the Nature's Roots Dies inside the oval. It helps to use Washi Tape or a Post-It Note to hold them in place. Put them through a Die Cutting Machine. Attach to the Third Layer.
The final touches are:
- Stamp the sentiment with Soft Sea Foam Ink inside the leaf cutout.
- Make a bow with the 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and attach it with a Glue Dots.
- The gold small leaf (from the cutout) can be attached to the inside of the card.
This card has a nice blend of ovals and circles to soften the sharp ends of the Stitched Nested Labels Die, plus I love the stitching look on the dies. It is one of those subtle features that change the look of a project.
November is a month focused on gratitude. I am truly grateful for your continued support and our friendship, which was created out of our love of papercrafting! Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!
