I promise the next cards will not involve Heartfelt Blooms or Southern Serenade; Scouts honor! But I just had to do one more card with Southern Serenade before I move on. I wanted to try the Hinge Step technique shown in the Stampin' Up! video below, and it turned out great! The window for reserving your preorder of the Stamparatus is closed but *good news* - it will be available in the annual catalog that starts June 1st!
I stamped the panel lace with Powder Pink, and randomly stamped the flower buds with all over the card base, also in Powder Pink.
The flower sprig was colored with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends and fussy cut before gluing it to the lace panel. A Copper Foil mat was added and it was all adhered to the card base. I chose a greeting from Thoughtful Banners and heat embossed it in white on Basic Black. That's the only thing that got popped up on dimensionals. And can you believe it.....Mr. Big was not used in the making of this card!
Here is the video about the Stamparatus - an innovative new stamp positioning tool! You're going to want this when it comes out in June!!!
