Card For a Friend

Card For a Friend

Hello & welcome again to my Stampin' Up blog.

Happy Birthday Theresa!

Toady I finally finished a card that has been trying to get made since Sunday. 
It certainly wasn't as easy to create as it looks!
I made this gorgeous card for a lovely friends birthday that happened last week. I don't get to see her very much just lately due to work, family etc etc, but wanted her to know that I hadn't forgotten about her. She is a very kind & thoughtful person
&
I wanted something special for this card. 
Something that stood out. 
So, I used the Floral Phrases stamp & the Detailed Floral thinlits.


I thought that my colour scheme needed to be simple as the thinlits are so detailed!... The colors chosen for the DSP (Floral Boutique) in the catalogue that is used with this floral bundle seemed the way to go, Night of Navy on Whisper White on Night of Navy.

I decide upon having an acetate window in-between the two panels, but I didn't want it to be see through all the way up & down the front of the card.....I wanted some surprises!
 So I cut a panel to match the front,top and bottom, then glued them inside. 
To attach the front to the back I made the back panel 1/2 a cm longer then scored along that 1/2 cm line, folded & burnished it. This created my hinge. I glued the folded piece along the top, on the inside of the floral acetate panel.
This enabled the card to sit and move as a normal card would.

As points of interest, I placed a couple of Nights of Navy cut out pieces into the Whisper white die cut panels and added little Rhinestone to the centre of each of the flowers that I bought forward with the Night of Navy.

Thank you for stopping by & I do hope you enjoyed my creative attempts today.

If you liked this card and would like to create your own. Here is a list of items I used.

  7. Hi Debora, Thank you very much for your lovely comment. As to making it, the detailed thinlits set has an edgelit in it. That is what I used for the backing with out the detailed thinlit. for the centred inlaid parts I just cut a night of navy detailed thinlit. and used the "waste" pieces. Or alternatively you could save the white ones and die them with the ink!
