For the August Glimmer Gals Team Sketch Challenge I am using the fabulous Ornate Layers Bundle and the lovely sentiments from the Healing Hugs stamp set. With the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine I was able to use the Ornate Layers dies with ease with just running it through once forward and back.
Start with a Bumblebee cs card base. Cut a Ornate Garden Specialty DSP panel, wrap it with a piece of Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon (from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack) & Bumblebee In Color ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panel, and then glue the wrapped panel to the card base.
Die cut out a Whisper White cs frame with the Ornate Layers dies. I used my Take A Pick tool and Die Brush tip to remove all the pieces from the delicate frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink at the bottom of the frame. I stamped the daisy image from the Ornate Style stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink centered above the sentiment. Color the flower with Stampin’ Blends. Apply the Shimmery Crystal Effects to the center of the flower and use the tip of your Take A Pick tool paper piercer to drag a small amount of Shimmery Crystal Effects in lines to the petals. Once dry, add the frame to the center of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink and added a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my Ornate Style Healing Vibes Card. You can order the Ornate Style bundle, Take A Pick tool, and Ornate Garden Specialty DSP in my Online Store now and order the standard Stampin’ Cut & Emboss in September.
