This first card was so fun to make and is not as CAS as it looks. First off, I took a full card front and stamped the the Lovely Laurels wreath on the front. It's not just Simply Chartreuse though. I took Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse and rubbed them on to an acrylic block. Next, I spritzed the block with water and then used that as my ink pad. I stamped the wreath 3 times on to the card base, stamping off twice. I added in the sentiment in black in in the middle. I grabbed a banner from Tag Sale #10 die and stamped the sentiment. I scored the ends of the banner to make it a little 3D and then attached it to the card front. Last, I took the pink twine from the kit and tied 6 french knots throughout the wreath to look like little roses. I used foam tape to adhere the whole card front down to the card base. CAS but not so CAS. :)
This new Mini Kit includes a mini stamp set with a laurel wreath and small images to accent it with. Gorgeous patterned papers in pretty pastels serve as quick and easy card fronts. The coordinating die is an open face die so you can cut the wreath from the papers or stamp first, then cut. Since it does not cut at the bottom and top, it allows you to bend the leaves upward for dimension. Also included in the kit are flower & leaf sequins, leaf ribbon and twine.
I decided to use one of the card front for my next card. I cut the laurel wreath out in the new gold adhesive sheets and trimmed the laurel wreath around the edges. I stamped the sentiment right on the pattern paper and then added in 3 little white flower sequins to the middle. So quick and easy!
That's all I have for today but the other girls have lots more to see. Stop by there blogs for more mini kit inspiration!
Tomorrow is going to be a fun day. That's all I'm saying. :)
