It's our favorite time of year - SALE-A-BRATION, and My Inky Friends have cooked up a fun hop showcasing some of the great items you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order. Holly over at The Rubber Redneck was before me, so you may have landed here from her page. If you follow the links at the bottom, you can take the whole tour!
I chose Lovely Lattice because, well....flowers! And coloring! As soon as I saw this stamp set, it zipped to the top of my SAB "must have" list.
I wanted to show off the image on the clean gingham background, but I sure didn't want to fussy cut the whole thing! Using my Stampin' Trimmer, I cut just up to the image, which left about half - the EASY half - to fussy cut, 'cuz I'm smart like that, LOL!
After it was colored and cut, I put Mr. Big to work with the Subtle embossing folder to give the image a bit of texture. Once it was mounted on the gingham background, I slipped the greeting from Well Said under and adhered it all to the card base. (I figured since flu season is upon us, I'm probably going to need a get well card soon.)
Some Gingham Gala sequins were added for a bit of sparkle. It sure is easy to use those adhesive-backed embellishments! When the card was complete, the envelope flap was dressed up with the single flower stamp that's part of the set.
That's all from me today. I had other ideas, but Mom is visiting, so I didn't have time to make them a reality. Up next is Staci Miserlian, who is featuring Precious Parcel.
You are smart like that!! Love your coloring and then the texture with the subtle EF is so pretty. It really adds a fancy element to the card. Along with your brilliant idea to cut the easy part. Lol! Just beautiful!ReplyDelete
