I paired the Stampin’ Up! Many Layered Blossoms Dies with the Timeless Tulips stamp set to make a simple Sympathy card…one I always need but never seem to have in my card stash.
It is hard to see but I ran the black panel through the Old World Paper Embossing Folder after placing the die cut on it. I did secure the die cut better on the bottom edge but had already taken the photo! I pulled the design to the inside with another piece of the Layered Blossoms Dies and Memento Black ink. I love this sentiment- it really moves my heart.
It’s time for another fun Friday Mashup Challenge! Holly is giving us a chance to replenish the Birthday card stash we used up last year! And…she has challenged us to use twine on our project/card for the Friday Mashup #142.
I used the new SU Perfect Pennants to create my card. I like to “tighten” up the borders on the pennants so I created my own Smoky Slate pennant between the Very Vanilla one and the Raspberry Ripple one. I did this by die cutting one the same size as the Raspberry Ripple one and lining up the horizontal side up against my Stampin’ Trimmer and trimming 1/16 an inch off each size until I was happy with the size. Doing it this way keeps the pointy ends of the pennant uniform when lined up because sometimes my cutting skills are lacking when I try to cut the banner points via scissors! Then I just line up my pointy ends and trim an equal amount of the pennant off the top.
