a Cut at Home Design Team Project
Today's card uses the Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection of dies including the Background set, Border, Corner and Strip set and the Stockholm set. I also used the Stamps To Die For Floral Flourish Oval Duo stamps.
The video will share what each die cut looks like, how I put my card together and other still photos. I used foam tape between the layers on the front to pop them above one another so all the little curls and flourishes would stand out.
With these dies you get the outer cutting die which cuts the embellishment completely out of your paper. Or, you can use the decorative piece by itself to cut out only the die with out cutting away the excess. This is how the front of the card is made, the decorative part is cut into the paper leaving the border around. By trimming the excess I ended up with a nice card base.
The inside uses the Corner and Strip along with the mat from the Stockholm set. I used a beautiful piece of ribbon that just arrived in a Happy Mail box from Manuela (Bunny Bow). It was perfect timing for my card. The sentiment is stamped with Dusty Concord distress ink using a stamp set from my stash, Taylored Expressions Notable Blooms.
