First up is this grid layout card featuring stamping, punching and die cutting - simples! I stamped the Hardwood onto Crumb Cake CS with Soft Suede ink and was able to cut all four squares at the same time thanks to a 1 7/8" squares grid die. I glued a Rich Razzleberry mat layer to the front of the 5 1/4" square cream card, inked the edges of each wood square and popped them up. I stamped the butterflies with Rich Razzleberry ink onto Coastal Cabana CS, punched them out and glued them to the wood squares making sure to lift the wings up. A stamped and punched circle element completed the card front.
Here's the inside and the envelope.
For card two, as with card one, I stamped the Hardwood stamp onto Crumb Cake CS with Soft Suede ink. The wood grain detail looks stronger on this card because I re-inked my Soft Suede ink pad after making the first card. I stamped the silhouette with VersaMark ink onto the wood panel and heat embossed with white powder - white heat embossing on kraft card is definitely a fave look of mine! I trimmed the wood panel to size, inked the edges with Soft Suede ink, added the gingham ribbon and adhered the wood panel to a white CS mat layer. I then adhered that layer to the front of an A6 Tempting Turquoise card base. Blimey, it has been a LONG time since I've used turquoise - I think I fell in love with the newer blues from SU! and neglected Tempting Turquoise! I stamped and punched the sentiment element, popped that up and sprinkled on a few turquoise gems to finish the front.
For the inside and envelope I stamped the gorgeous silhouette in Soft Suede ink. I snapped this Hero Arts 'Wildflower Garden' set up from the ex demo/class sale section at the Glitter Pot - a beautiful bargain!
