This is the third, and my favorite card we made at our last stamp camp. Why is it my favorite? Because I love the new Split Card Textures dies! There are two dies in this set. One cuts out the design you see here and the other cuts out flowers. Both only cut half a page, which adds so much interest to a card.
This card was fairly simple to make. First, I used the Split Card Textures die on a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White card stock. I layered that on top of a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is absolutely gorgeous. There are soft designs on one side of each piece. On the other side is a foil paper design in Fresh Freesia, Silver, Copper and Gold foil. They are just gorgeous in person. I used the soft side for the background of my card and the foiled side in Fresh Freesia for the pot.
Next, I stamped the leaves from the stamp set called Splendid Thoughts in Evening Evergreen ink and colored them using Soft Succulent Blends. Next, I cut it out using the coordinating die from the Splendid Stems die set. If you purchase the stamp set and the dies using the bundle item number, you will save 10%. I adhered that to the card using Multipurpose Glue. The glue worked better to make it adhere to the uneven card stock from the Split Card Textures die. Next, I cut out the pot using the same die set, tied a piece of white Baker’s Twine around it and adhered it using Dimensionals. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink.
Susan, this is a spectacular card! I love that large potted plant over the die cut. Don’t sell me on those dies!
I will do my best, Jackie! 🙂
OMG! Absolutely love this card! You have sold me on those dies! I’m going to get them as soon as they are back in stock!
Thanks, Julia. I love them too and knew I had to have them right away!
This is such a gorgeous card, Susan. I am liking the Splendid Thoughts Bundle more and more. I love how you used the DSP as the pot and behind the die-cut. Very peaceful card.
