think the Petal Palette Stamp Set and co-ordinating Petals & More
Thinlits Dies, is my favourite bundle in this year’s Spring/Summer catalogue.
Given how many super sets there are in the 2018 catalogue, I think it speaks volumes about this bundle!
started today’s card with a base of Pink Pirouette Cardstock (CS), then
a layer of Whisper White CS, and a top layer of Pink Pirouette CS.
adhered these layers together, I dry embossed the top layer using the
Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.
I learned a great tip from France “Frenchie”
Martin years ago, and that is to put a layer of our Vellum CS inside the
folder on the front i.e. on the side with Sizzix on it.
I put a line of
Fast Fuse along the top of the Vellum CS, and then adhere it inside the
After this, I leave the sheets in-situ and dry emboss as normal!
Frenchie has just brought out a new video
demonstrating this. Frenchie’s Video: Tip for Embossing Folders.
I had to share that tip because it really does work! Back to my card!
Then I coloured
the bird and the flowers using my Stampin Blends; Dark Crumb Cake for
the bird, and Light Pink Pirouette and Light Old Olive for the roses.
When I die cut them all, I positioned the die for the sentiment right at

My final touch for the front of
the card was that I painted over the three little hearts with the
Fine-Tip Glue Pen, which dries to a shine.
adhered a layer of Whisper White CS inside the card, and then adhered a
small cluster of hearts in the bottom right-hand corner.
Next I used my Fine-Tip Glue Pen again to glaze over these hearts in the same way I did with the hearts on the front of the card.
Fortunately, it’s a minor detail which I’m not going to worry about! ☺
I think that’s about it from me today! Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
