I wasn’t sure
yesterday if I was going to share more than one card from this kit or
Once I started working on card 2 yesterday, I knew I would write
about this one, but the jury is still out about cards 3 and 4; it depends on
if I have anything worthwhile to say! LOL!
wasting the first card from number 1, I decided to have a practice run
on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock (CS) from my stash.

It was a great idea
and saved me wasting anything on card 2.
My first test piece was on our Thick
Whisper White Cardstock (CS), but the Stampin’ Blends bled over the
My second attempt was on our regular Whisper White CS, and the
results were brilliant.
I was able to practice the layout as well as the
colouring, which gave me the confidence to go for the real thing!

First of all, I measured 0.75″ up from bottom, and down
from top; then I measured in from the fold in by 1.25″, top and bottom.

glueing the twine just underneath the black line but, although it’s
doable, it can be very messay and I decided better of it.
I’m really looking forward to working on card 3 later today!
That’s it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
