Let's start today with a card that pairs the Give Love set with Cover Up: Quatrefoil. I used the sweet birds from Give Love the other day, so I decided to stick with the flowers from the set for today's card.
Next I heat embossed the sentiment from the set onto a vellum strip. I die cut a circle from a Dark Indigo card front and adhered sentiment in the window. Then I adhered the card front to the now-dry card base. It was still a little warped from the spray, so I pressed it under a stack of books overnight.
In the meantime, I die cut the flowers and leaves from Give Love and stamped them with the coordinating images. I arranged the flowers on the card base and adhered them with flat and foam adhesives. A mix of both gives better dimension. I rounded the corners and tied on crochet thread bow to finish it up.
Next up today I have a card showcasing the Cover Up: Diamonds stamp set. This background took some time, but it was peaceful and fun so I didn't mind one little bit.
Once the panel was dry, I die cut it with a Noted rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base with foam tape. Then, I xyroned some Dark Indigo cardstock and die cut an It's The Thought sentiment three times and stacked them for stability and thickness.
I stamped the companion sentiment onto a Tag Sale: Quilted banner and adhered both greetings to the watercolor panel. To finish, I embellished with a handful of sequins from the Sunshine & Rainbows kit.
Doesn't it look like stained glass or something? I love it!
