Hi and welcome to my first blog post of 2023.
I feel so blessed that I'll be celebrating 3 big milestones this year.
I'll celebrate my 80th birthday, being 10 years color cancer free and our 60th wedding anniversary. It's going to be a great year!!!
I'm a real big fan of the slimline cards and I love making them. Today's card was so easy to put together because I already had the blue roses made. The beautiful slim dies do all the work for you!
Instructions: Card size is 8 1/2 x 4”. Score and fold 8 1/2 x 8” white cardstock at 4”. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 2x at 8 3/8 x 3 7/8”. Cut white cardstock 2x at 8 1/4 x 3 3/4”. Stamp the ‘On Your Special Day’ Sentiment from Celebrate Love Sentiments Cling Stamp set and the single Rose from the Budding Rose Heart Cling Stamp set on one of the white cardstock panels using Metallic Gold ink, cover with Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Adhere to one of the gold panels and adhere to the inside of the card. Dry emboss the second white cardstock panel using a textured embossing folder (I used the Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing Folder which is retired), adhere to the second gold panel using dries clear adhesive and adhere to the card front using dimensional tape.
Diecut the Slim Lattice Oval Die 2x, once from white cardstock and once from Luxe Gold cardstock. Adhere the white decorative diecuts on top of the gold decorative diecuts, slightly offset so that it creates a beautiful glimmery shadow. Adhere to the embossed white panel on the card front using dries clear adhesive. Stamp the ‘Best Wishes’ sentiment from the Celebrate Love Sentiments Cling Stamp set on the white center diecut using Metallic Gold ink, cover with Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Adhere the gold center piece behind the white piece slightly offset and adhere to the card front using dimensional dots.
Stamp the Classic Roses on Deluxe flower Shaping Paper using Seaside Spray ink, diecut with the coordinating dies, color the front and the back using the same ink and shape using the Groove Golf Tools. Use four same size flowers to create each rose. Using the Groove Golf Tool, pierce a hole in the middle of the smallest flowers and insert an Assorted Bead Stamen – Medium. Using a paint brush, cover the flowers with watered down dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter.
Stamp the Classic Rose, Leafy Accents and Large Floral Urn leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Archival Olive ink, color using the same ink along with Leaf Green ink and diecut using the coordinating dies. Add additional color to the edges of the leaves using the Olive ink. Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Using a paint brush, cover the leaves with watered down dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter.
Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card front using hot glue.
