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! 🙂
