Let's take a look at one of the "Last Thursdays" projects...
I'm loving the refreshing color combination of these two cool cards.
Background Basics—Both cards start with a 4"x 4" Whisper White folded card base, but you'll notice that the first card's focal point extends above the card fold. Too Cool!
The background is decorated with a 3-3/4" square piece of the Confetti Celebration Designer Series paper.
Here's a better look from the side. Funny how just a little repositioning of a stamping element can make the card go from simple to simply stunning! The best part is that it still fits into a regular Medium Envelope—how convenient!
Kindness Blooms—I used Stampin' Markers to color directly on the Gifts of Kindness flower image. The large flower is in Rich Razzleberry, the smaller flower is in Blackberry Bliss and the stems are in Mossy Meadow. I stamped once onto Whisper White card stock for the main image, then colored the blooms again and stamped onto scrap to make hand-cut popped up layers.
Window Frames—The image is die-cut it with the Window Frames Framelits. I die-cut a larger Window Frame shape out of Blackberry Bliss, then used the Festive Paper Piercing Templates to add some piercing details along the border.
Bow—The Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker's Twine bow is adhered to the flower stem with some Multipurpose Glue.
Flower Details—I punched an Itty Bitty Accents flower shape from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the center on the large flower. The smaller flower has a glimmer center punched with the 1/4" Circle Punch. Both are topped with Pearl Jewels.
Finishing Touches—I wrapped Mossy Meadow Stitched Satin Ribbon around the bottom of the card and tied into a faux bow. A sentiment from Gifts of Kindness was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Whisper White card stock and punched with the Decorative Label Punch. I trimmed down the shape and tucked it behind the ribbon for a half-hidden look.
My second card uses all the same elements on the same 4" square card base. Rather than a bow, I wrapped the ribbon around the card and secured the ends under the Windwo Frame layer.
This Gifts of Kindness sentiment was double-punched with the Word Window Punch to make it a smaller shape.
