We used a die to cut out the front of the card. The beautiful stamp, colored with markers, was centered perfectly by placing it through the opening in the top of the card after adding some adhesive of course.
We really had a sweet time, not just eating the treats that Ree and Trudy shared. Practicing the art of making greeting cards by using some really special stamps from the mini catty is always something that makes us feel better.
This second card had lots more sweet techniques to try. We made the pretty tea cut stamp look like watercolor fine china with versamark and stampin pastels. Lace was added at the bottom to the rich razzleberry panel that was dry embossed. Something really new for me was making the lacy piece for the top of the cup. It is a strip of white punched and distressed to make it soft enough to gather it as if it was a piece of cloth.
I stamped a jar on the lucky limeade pillow box, punched a circle from it, attached the piece of window sheet behind before forming the box with the sticky red tape. I added a scallop punched strip of concord cs, a daffodil grosgrain ribbon and a tag with a stapled sprig of ribbon for accent. It is filled with gourmet gumballs. It would make a sweet little treat tucked in with a gift. I think the unique thing here is that the location of the bottom trim allows the box to actually stand up.
Thank you Ree and Trudy for a fun, sweet and happy evening. I so enjoyed it!
