Yesterday while scrolling through my card photos, it occurred to me that I’ve been SO deep into card production lately that I completely forgot to post a few that I made weeks ago! Today’s design is one of those, featuring the Ornate Pointsettias Die from Pinkfresh Studio. (I seem to be very drawn to pointsettia cards this year – not sure why!)
As you may know if you’ve been following along for a while, I’m a fan of white-on-white card designs that allow the sentiment to be the focal point. That’s exactly what I did here, starting by running the Ornate Pointsettias die, along with a piece of heavyweight white cardstock through my die cutting machine.
Next, I moved on to work on the letters for the ‘holidays’ sentiment. These were made using Heather’s Lower Case Die Set and a rainbow of cardstock colours. Before sticking any of the letters together, I arranged them on the white strip of cardstock sized to the width of the Ornate Pointsettias die cut.
After getting the letters aligned, overlapping where I wanted them to overlap etc, I used a piece of Post-It tape to temporarily hold them in place while I flipped them over and applied adhesive to the back. From there, I secured them on the white strip of cardstock and removed the Post-It tape.
I stamped ‘Happy’ above ‘Holidays’, placed a piece of foam tape behind the white strip, and mounted it on the Ornate Pointsettias die cut. After centering that on my card base, I finished the card with a few little bits of confetti.
Stay tuned for later this week – there’s a new Pinkfresh Studio release coming up and I think you guys are going to love this one!
