I was about to go into crafting withdrawal so finally took some time today to make a card. With all the holiday activities, my crafting goes to the back burner. I wanted to try out one of my new goodies from the Occasions Mini Catalog. These cards feature the new Framelits Dies – Labels Collection. I chose sympathy cards because my supply was low – hopefully I won’t have to use them anytime soon.
- Stamps: Thanks for Caring
- Ink: Rich Razzleberry
- Paper: Cottage Wall DSP (retired), Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum (retired) Whisper White, Naturals White
- Accessories: Labels Collection Framelit Dies (125598), Pearls, Brads, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die
I liked how well the stamp worked with the die design. I have a feeling I’ll be using these dies often. I cut my paper first then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the stamp. I then sponged rich razzleberry ink around the whisper white. To add more interest and dimension, I added the butterflies and brad or pearl.
I hope to do more scrapbooking this year. My chronological is 7 years behind – gasp!!! I have done small books that cover some of that time. So guess I need to make fewer cards and start scrapbooking.
