A flowery, all occasion card for a friend or relative featuring beautiful dies & paper w/ a short tutorial showing how I did the partial die cut edge.
A big congrats to Diane, the newest Featured Stamper (FS856)! She has a really lovely gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I loved the fancy lower edge & layout, so I kept those, but I used different dies, colors & papers.
For my card, I did something I don’t usually do..I picked the floral paper first & die cut it. I wanted to make sure it would stand out enough behind the top panel. Then I cut a smaller white panel & used an oval die to do a partial die cut edge.
Here’s how I did that:
I placed the large stitched oval where I wanted the edge to be (shown above).
Then I placed the top plate over just the area I wanted to cut. (I’m using the Big Shot here so you can see it, above). The machine will only cut what the top plate covers.
All cut & turned out perfectly! Now I have the curved edge I wanted.
I then die cut the fancy oval & the envelope of flowers out of white & trimmed off what I wasn’t going to use. I placed the section of the fancy oval under the curved edge & the flowers/leave of the flower envelope I trimmed to fit on top. I cut some pieces of 2 different dusty pinks to place behind the 2 big flowers & 2 small buds. The greeting was stamped in black & heat embossed. I didn’t have the right color of gems, so I used a Copic marker (RV34) to color the clear stones. The greeting circles were popped up just a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
