A big congrats to Kathy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS782) on Splitcoast! She has a really big, wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral theme & lattice, but I used different images & dies, & also made mine a mini slimline.
For my thank you card, I knew I wanted to an area to stamp my greeting w/o having to add another panel, so I cut the bottom section by only partially covering the die w/ the top plate, cutting that far, then moving the plate to the top section & repeating this process. I used a craft knife to finish any partially cut strips above & below the solid band. I added 2 pieces of cardboard, die cut w/ the same die, underneath the lattice panel to elevate it a bit. On the panel underneath, I stamped the wildflowers in different colors of ink & also stamped a couple extra ones on a separate piece & fussy cut them. I sponged some yellow inks coming in from the upper left. After I attached the lattice, I inserted the 2 fussy cut branches in & out of the lattice, stamped the greeting & added some gems.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
