I have two cards to share with you today that feature All Together 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and several retiring products on the Last Chance List. These products are available while supplies last! It’s possible that by the time you read this, some of these products will have sold out.
- Free as a Bird Stamp Set
- Stitched So Sweetly Dies
- Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
- Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack
I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. As I mentioned above, this embossing folder is retiring and I’m pretty sad about that. What I love about this folder is that it’s very subtle and doesn’t clash with a busy Designer Series Paper pattern. I really enjoy adding texture to a card and this one always works perfectly.
Next, I adhered a piece of All Together 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and then wrapped a piece of Basic White ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the paper and tied a knot. This nice, wide ribbon is another product I love. Not all ribbons are easy to use but this one is. If I can’t wrap a ribbon around a card easily and tie it in a knot, then I won’t use it. This ribbon is retiring, comes with another ribbon and a beautiful Baker’s Twine AND it’s on sale with a 20% discount!
I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the ribbon wrapped piece and adhered it to the embossed Basic White cardstock. To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink and the stamp set, Free as a Bird. I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. To say I love these dies is an understatement. They are sweet and feminine and I’m REALLY, REALLY going to miss using them.
I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the top and bottom of the rectangle and then placed it on my card I didn’t want the Dimensionals sitting on top of the ribbon which is why I opted for using the Minis (the regular Dimensionals were just too big).
Here’s the other card I made using all the same products but this time I used a Thick Basic White cardstock base and a Basic White mat for the All Together Designer Series Paper. Although it’s hard to tell in my photo, I did emboss the Basic Black cardstock.
