I’m so excited that September is here. I’m also excited about this month’s color fusers color combo. These darker colors remind me of fall and winter which are my favorite times of the year. So lets get started talking about my two projects.
This month I made a different type of card for you. This one slips into an envelope but is not meant to stand on its own once removed. The sentiment on the insert peeks out beckoning you to pull it out.
The delicate flowers on this card are all from the Delightfully Delicate Laser Cut Designer Paper. I just colored each one using an ink pad and blender pen. However, on the insert, I left the flowers in their original state. Cutting up the designer series paper has made it go a long long way. I find myself using it in different ways all of the time.
I used a combination of product on this card. It is nice to be able to combine different suites products together and have it work. The galvanized button and clip are from the Festive Farmhouse Suite. The milk can and the sentiments are in the stamp set Country Home which is in the Country Lane Suite.
Notice the card sleeve, it is embossed using the fabulous folder Tin Tile. That folder is in the Country Lane Suite as well. To enhance the tin tile impressions, I placed Gray Granite ink onto the folder before running the Gray Granite cardstock through the Big Shot. I really like this pattern with color added to it, the added color makes the tile impressions really stand out. You can see the difference by comparing the card to the bag/box.
Here are the how to sleeve instructions:
- With your card in portrait style, cut the front half of your card base using your stampin’ trimmer from left top corner to bottom right corner.
- Emboss the piece of cardstock that you remove. Then emboss the attached triangle.
- Now lay your card base landscape. Using a fine line of liquid glue add glue to the removed triangle. Put glue on the two straight edges. Attach this triangle to the left side of your card base.
- Add liquid glue to the attached triangle only on the bottom edge. And place it down to secure.
- Now you have a pocket card ready to add your insert.
To make the bag box you need two card bases. You can find the instructions on my Paper Pumpkin post dated August 21.
I love the size of this bag box. In this picture, you can see how the tile pattern is subtle. When you want a subtle look just do not add ink to the folder.
To color the ribbon I used a sponge and my Blueberry Inkpad. I always say buy the white and vanilla ribbons for sure, they can be dyed.
A pearlized doilie holds a flower arrangement. I just added liquid glue to one side of the doilie and folded it over onto itself making a cone.
One galvanized clip holds the bag/box closed.
Here are my close-up pictures. I want to be sure that you can see the details.
I sure hope you enjoyed your time here today. Now you get to hop on over to visit with the talented Tami Hewlett. Have Fun!
