My final pair of cards from my Positive Thoughts LIVE Class were actually one created by me and a swap card created by LeeAnn Greff that inspired my card.
Background Basics—The Blushing Bride card base is cut a little shorter for a small front card panel. It measures 5-1/2" x 7" and it's scored at 4-1/4". I adhered a 2-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of the NEW Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper from the Coordinating Products Release on the front panel.
Focal Point—I die-cut a Whisper White label using the NEW Nature's Thoughts dies for my focal point background. Then, I inked up the Positive Thoughts leaves image with Smoky Slate, stamped off once, then stamped onto the label for a light background. I mounted the label onto a 3" x 4-1/2" piece of Copper Foil and popped it up onto the card front with Dimensionals.
Two Blooms—I stamped the Positive Thoughts bloom image in both Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White, then die-cut it with the coordinating Nature's Thoughts die. They are added over the leaves with SNAIL adhesive.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Positive Thoughts sentiment in Basic Gray ink onto a 3-1/4" x 7/8" strip of Petal Pink cardstock, then fishtail cut the right end and mounted it flush along the edge of the label. I finished by adding a couple of Champagne Rhinestones.
Copper Butterfly—The butterfly image was stamped in VersaMark ink onto Whisper White, sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder and heat-set with a Heat Tool until glossy and smooth. I die-cut that with the Nature's Thoughts dies, as well, then attached it with a Glue Dot. I finished with a single Champagne Rhinestone on the butterfly body.
Inside The card—I die-ct a second Whisper White label for the inside of the card, stamping it with the leaves with stamped-off Smoky Slate and the butterfly with stamped-off Flirty Flamingo inks. Sweetness!
Swap Card Created by LeeAnn Greff
Two Cool—The second card is the swap card that inspired my card and it was created by LeeAnn Greff. I love the bold, cheery colors and I especially loved the fun opening.
Background Basics—LeeAnn started with a Granny Apple Green card base with the same 5-1/2" x 7" measurements. Her card front is decorated with another pattern from the Pleased As Punch DSP that gives a subtle striped & distressed pattern to the card front.
Focal Point—LeeAnn stamped onto the label with Granny Apple Green leaves and Highland Heather blooms, then layered it onto a Highland Heather mat. Before mounting it onto the card front, she adhered a Whisper White decorative edge created with the the Delicate Lace dies.
Sweet Sentiment—She stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather and attached a Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon knot onto the banner with a Glue Dot.
Butterfly—Finally, she stamped the butterfly in Highland Heather and added a Gorgeous Grape rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack. Loveliness!
