Story of Elegance 

Welcome Tuesday and welcome back!  I’m so happy you decided to stop by.

I’m excited about our new annual catalog.  It is loaded with many wonderful products that will delight your crafting senses.  Or help you develop them if you believe you don’t have them.  But trust me, you’ve got them.  We all do!  I recommend you pick a few products and give it a try.  You won’t regret it!

Today I chose to work with our new Stitched Rectangle Dies.  These dies are fantastic and there are 19 of them in the set!!    And of course crafting with these dies fits well within my two requirements for projects.  1. Simple and 2. Elegant.

Here’s my color palate and card for today.

Stitched Triangle Thinking of You card

Our beautiful Peony Garden Designer Series Paper  (DSP) makes another showing with the project.  The Stitched Rectangle dies and Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder make a quick work of this card.  I love that!

So, this is what I did:

Step 1: Die cut the connected triangle die in the upper center of a  4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Whisper White card stock.

Step 2: Emboss the panel  and add a piece of DSP behind the die cut for the Peek A Boo.  Then adhere it to a Thick Whisper White card stock base.

Step 3: Using the largest Stitched Rectangle die, cut two pieces of DSP  from the same die and layer them in the corner of the panel.

Step 4:  Choose 2 nested Stitched Rectangle dies to fit your sentiment of choice.  Use the larger of the two to cut a rectangle from DSP and the smaller to stamp the sentiment.

Step 4: Of course, I couldn’t forget the embellishments.  I added a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems around the Peek-A-Boo and  to the sentiment.

Add some DSP to a Whisper White Envelope and call it – D.O.N.E !
