Howdy - Adrienne, guest designer from Eagle Canyon Arts and tickled pink to be here today. Thanks so much to Sheila for inviting me to participate! It is so much fun to be on the Sassy Lady design team.
It is never easy to see friends move away, even when we know it is for the best. The French always say, "Au Revoir", which means, "Until we meet again", a very hopeful outlook. Here is a card made for such a time.
This project uses several Close To My Heart products including the exclusive CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
Close To My Heart Supplies Needed:
Papers - "Stella" (no longer available) and small scraps
Inks - Ruby Z2170 Cocoa Z2114 Lagoon Z2195
Embellishments - "Stella" workshop lace and button (no longer available)
Stamp Set - "Bonjour Occasions" B1414 (retired)
Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686)
Colonial White Card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 (X1410) (link is to the 50 card value pack)
Liquid Glass (as adhesive) (Z679)
Embossing Machine (Big Kick) and Folders ("Botanics")
Cricut machine (plus Gypsy, if desired)
Adhesives of choice
To make the card: Choose your embossing materials, cut your main paper at 1/4" less than the size of your card and emboss that paper for the front of your card.
|Sizzix "Botanics" Embossing Folder|
|Paper in folder ready to emboss|
|Embossing detail - pretty flowers!|
Heart - p. 26 Layer <s> setting (row 1, col. 5). Cut one each at 1", 1.5" and 2.25"
Scallop - p. 55 <Rctngle7>** (row 5, col. 4). cut one at 1.5"
**(note - on the Gypsy, to me, this means NONE of the buttons are pushed on the left hand side where you pick icons or fonts and "shift" - clear as mud, right? It would be the same thing on the Cricut keypad.)
