I’ve been busy creating with some of my favorite products from the Last Chance List. These are products that sadly are retiring to make room for new product in the upcoming Annual Catalog. I am so pleased with how today’s card turned out. I am so in love with the feminine prints found in the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper. It made creating this card so easy and fun.
I started out by creating a “frame” on the card by cutting a rectangle from the center of the card front. I did this with the Stitched Rectangle Dies (3rd larges die). Next I used the Scripty Embossing Folder to add texture to the Blushing Bride card stock which I then attached to the inside flap of the card.
For the bouquet of tulips, I used the masking Technique. I first stamped the three tulips on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Blushing Bride ink and then again on a post it note. After cutting out the Post-it Note tulips, I positioned them directly over the tulips on the Whisper White cardstock making sure none of the original tulips were visible. The stems and leaves were stamped with Soft Sea Foam over the Post-it Note Tulips. Once the stamping was complete, I removed the Post-it Note Tulips. This revealed the appearance of the large flower stems and leave being behind the the smaller ones. I then did some fussy cutting around the tulips and stems with my Paper Snips and attached them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimenstionals.
The sentiment from Timeless Tulips was stamped in Blushing Bride on the strip of Whisper White and the end was notched to create a banner which was also attached with Dimensionals. The final touch is the Crinkle Ribbon bow. This ribbon comes in Whisper White, so I used my dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker to change the color of the ribbon the match the card.

I was playing around with the Timeless Tropical Bundle and loved the looks of the pineapple so much, I decided to incorporate in it a “Missing Middle” fun fold card. This fun fold card is one of the easiest ones to make and in my opinion it’s pretty impressive. What do you think?
