Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
On Monday I shared my “Thanks for Being You” card on my post I called: Friendship is Golden …
So today I thought I would show you what I did with the leftovers!! That’s right – save those tabs!
I really like playing with the new Sunburst Thinlits Die … it cuts easily (I did use the Precision Base Plate) and I’ve seen quite a few cute cards done with this die.
STAMPIN’ TIP … I cut out an additional sunburst (in a different color) to use as my template … hold in place with a glue dot or removable adhesive.
I used Very Vanilla card front and placed my template down adhering with a removable adhesive so I wouldn’t damage my card. Then I began tucking the gold cut out pieces into my template. I held them in place by using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755). Once I got all the pieces in place, I removed the template and set the cardfront off to the side.
Next, I cut a piece of the White Vellum Cardstock (101856) a quarter inch smaller than my base so that the tips of the “sunburst” beams peeked out from the vellum. I then embossed my greeting in gold. This beautiful Easter greeting also comes from the stamp set Suite Saying. I used this stamp set on Monday’s card too.
- Vellum = 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
- Vanilla Base w/Gold sunburst pieces = 3-3/4″ x 5″
- Gold Foil Mat = 4″ x 5-1/4″
I then matted the card front with Gold Foil sheet … I love the way the golden rays stretch out into the gold to frame our Easter greeting. I used the stampin’ dimensionals to pop up the entire card front on the Vanilla base.
I added a bow from the gold twine … not sure I like it! Hmmm … what do you think?
From scraps on Monday to a beautiful Easter card on Thursday …
I hope I inspired you to get a little creative with your scraps, just play and have fun! And thank you for spending a part of your day with me.
Have a wonderful Thursday ~
