I love the new Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and came up with the card below. I used a strip of vellum that I ran through the Big Shot to get the pattern on the top and bottom. I heat embossed "love" from the Best of February stamp set. I added a few flowers from the 5/8" flower trim, and my card was done.
To color my flowers, I lightly tapped them in the ink pad. The card turned out quite lovely, if I do say so myself.
Another card I made is a tri-fold card. I saw a video by a Stampin' Up demonstrator, Donna Weatherby, on how to make this card, so I had to try making one. The front of the card, below, is done in three colors: black, white, and Daffodil Delight.
Pennie, my upline, had a challenge for our meeting this month -- to use black and white with one other color on a card to swap. There would be five of us at the meeting, so I'd need to make five identical cards. I made the card as a possible swap, but I decided on another design to make for everyone. I would have had to order more of several supplies to reproduce five more exact copies of this card. Instead, the card went to my upline as a thank you for how wonderful she is.
By the way, the ribbon on the card is actually made with three ribbons that we sell: the 5/8" Organza ribbon is on the bottom, the 1/2" Seam Binding ribbon in Daffodil Delight is next, and the Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is on top. Below is a picture of the open card.
I then made a scribble card in black, white, and old olive. It was the card I decided to make for the swap at our meeting. I used the free Sale-a-bration stamp set called Bloomin' Marvelous.
Until next time,
