Celebrate with Petal Palette and Celebrate You Thinlits

The card I made today is inspired by one of the cards I made in November at OnStage.  Of all the samples we made, it was my favorite!  To see the original card, please click here.  For today’s card I used paper from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper as the background.  The bird layer is stamped in Powder Pink ink and cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits, for a little added detail. I skipped a stamped sentiment, and instead went with a die cut one from the Celebrate You Thinlits, which you can earn for FREE with a $100 purchase before tax and shipping!  It is one of the NEW $100 level rewards that can be earned this year during Sale-a-Bration!

Before cutting the sentiment, I applied a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back.  Doing this, in essence, creates a sticker from the die cut, and makes it simple to adhere your die cuts with very little effort/mess.  When you’re ready to apply, you just peel off the back layer and stick!  It’s a little extra work and expense, but definitely worth it!  Honestly, no matter how careful I am with glue, I ALWAYS make a mess!  So the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets are definitely a life saver for me!

Once the card was assembled, I added an extra scalloped circle layer behind the bird, and adhered the whole thing with dimensionals to make it pop a little!  I then added a few embellishments to finish it off.  I used two embellishments from the Occasions catalog on this card.  First, the silver leaves are from the Petal Passion Embellishments.  I then added a few epoxy shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.  These are one of my favorite new embellishments to use!  They are clear and very tiny, but they give a nice added touch to projects!  I used the glitter ones, which have just the tiniest hint of glitter!  Here’s a close up:

These cards will be going to new team members and members who have birthdays this month!  I hope they like them, and I hope you do too!  🙂

If you have any questions about this card, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Enjoy your day!
