and a Happy Monday to you, friends!
Imagine how quick and easy this card was…after I got the measurements just right, that is!
So, here they are:
Daffodil Card Base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side
Basic Black: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Whisper White: 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″
All you have to do is use the Delicate Lace Edgelits to die cut each side of the Basic Black on the 5-1/2″ side. Keep the edge of the die just a tad, maybe 1/8″ or so off the edge of the paper. I experimented and on one card I had a little bit more cut off but the Whisper White still fit in. You want to see that cute little stitching on the inside edge. Oh, and make sure you keep them symmetrical when you die cut them- it does look nicer that way:) Then, you just stamp your floral HELLO and color it pretty! I did use my Stamparatus to get a crisp dark black image, and I let it dry completely before coloring since I stamped it a couple times. I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Now, that we have Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers that do not streak, I am no longer afraid to color! I added a bee from the Very Vintage Annual Catalog Hostess Set.
I will be doing my Annual Catalog Paper and Accessories Shares this year-
keep tuned in for further information in May!
The Floral Statements Stamp Set has another gorgeous image in it that says THANKS with roses surrounding it.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
