I was having a little tidy up on my desk yesterday and came across a couple of die cuts which prompted me to make today’s card.
It’s so amazingly quick and easy for such an elegant card!
I was going to put a silver flower with a white centre on instead of the all white card and make it a 25th wedding anniversary card.
This idea could be followed through for 40th Ruby wedding anniversary – red flower – or 50th gold wedding anniversary, and so on!
The top layer is exactly the same size as the glimmer paper layer underneath, or could be a tad shorter/narrower.
I die cut the top layer using the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.
The sentiments, which are both from the Best Birds Stamp Set, are actually two individual stamps that I mounted on a block together.
I used Smokey Slate Ink and stamped directly onto my die cut towards the right hand side.
So I lifted one Glue Dot at a time and rolled it into a sausage shape, before placing it in a large area.
I put one in each corner of the die cut, then half way across the top and the bottom, then down the sides and two or three in random places across the centre.
I used the Botanical Builder Framelit Dies and Whisper White Cardstock to make the flower.
I adhered the two layers together with Tombow and put an over-sized Pearl in the centre.
If I remember correctly, the Pearl came from the Artisan xxxxxx Pack – I can’t remember the full name.
Today, I’m also sharing a Kelly’s Bag Box that’s been made by Michelle Ma.
She very kindly tagged me when she posted it on Facebook.
Many thanks for sharing, Michelle. ☺
Although Michelle’s bag looks identical to mine, it is in fact, two thirds smaller!
She used a piece of cardstock which measured 8″ x 8″ – in my video my cardstock was 12″ x 12″.
Let me know if you’d like to make this smaller bag but aren’t sure about where to make the score lines, and I’ll be happy to work it out for you! ☺
Michelle doesn’t have a blog for me to share with you, but she was more than happy for me to share her bag on my blog. That’s about it for today.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
