Story of Elegance 

Well it’s Tuesday -Whew! Was it ever a busy weekend.   Surprisingly, I’m pretty much ready for the Christmas holiday.  Although it will be different this year, I’m looking forward to a tasty meal, sharing presents and lots of Zoom calls to celebrate with family and friends.   With all the preparations, I did take a few minutes to play with some of the new products coming January 5, 2021.  Hard to believe we are only two weeks away from the debut of our January – June 2021 Mini Catalog!  Yay!

I continued to play with the products from my post on Friday.  As a refresher – here’s my card from last Friday and the products I used.

A Closer Look

Here’s are steps to create this card:

1.  Cut two  2″ x 5 1/2″ panels  of Oh So Ombre DSP  (Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green) and  to a card base of Thick Whisper White card stock.

2. Cut a 2 1/2″ x  5 1/2″ piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhere to the center of the two DSP panels.

3. Cut a 2 1/4″ x 5 1/2″  piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and adhere to the Blackberry Bliss card stock.

4. Cut a 2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock and  stamp the floral image on the top and bottom of the strip using Granny Apple Green ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to spatter Blackberry Bliss ink around the stamped floral images.  Adhere the strip to the Granny Apple green card stock.

5. Use the Double Oval punch and Oh So Ombre DSP for the sentiment panel.

6.  Stamp the sentiment on the smaller oval  using Blackberry Bliss ink and adhere to the card.

7.  Add Glitter Enamel Dots (retired) to the sentiment panel.

8. Use Blackberry Bliss Striped Ribbon (NEW PRODUCT!!) to make a small bow.  Add to the sentiment panel with a Glue Dot.
