I don’t normally post on Saturday, but I just had to get this in before the deadline.
A challenge being the deadline. I so loved this challenge over at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration –
It’s simply my favorite!
I had some swaps I needed to get finished. This was the perfect inspiration I needed to get these done. And in the mail!
I had made these fronts but could not think past them. So I cut them. And framed them. And topped them.
This is what they became –
Isn’t this just stunning?
These just turned out to be some fabulously beautiful anniversary cards!
A nice sort of side view to see that I adhered the vellum with Dimensionals behind the banner on the card. Vellum. Adhesive always shows through. This was a great hiding trick.
See the finished array of them!
To make this flower…..Grumble. Grumble. I’ve seen these all over. And some great tutorial “how to’s” as well. Nothing worked for me except a layer with the Magnetic Platform, clear plate, face up card stock (here, Red Foil), dyer sheet, the Rose thinlits, and the other clear plate.
Once I made a few passes back and forth, I removed the whole flower, die and all.
(Oooppps, petal came out.) I added the thinnest line of Tombow Liquid Glue to all the parts of the flower except for the outline. Too much glue here and it will ooze out onto your thinlits!
I placed the whole glued up flower on my card stock , glue side down, and pressed firmly with my finger and the stylus in the intricate parts. Sometimes even using the piercer to make sure everything was adhered nicely!
I carefully poked through the holes in the die to release it.
What came out was the flower outline and the little pieces of dryer sheet. The inside of the flower remained adhered to the panel.
Whew. It really was so much better for me.
Take a look at this beauty. Again.
It’s so pretty, isn’t it? Leave me a comment, I’d love to read what you think!
