The Birthday Jubilee bundle from the Jan/June Mini Catalogue is probably the thing I wish was carrying over the most. I love the intricate dies in this bundle and the whimisical feel of the stamp and have not finishing playing with them both yet, so this ones definatley a keeper for me.
For this project I made a gatefold card by cutting a piece of card to 28 cm x 10.5cm. Taking the long side of the card score at 7cm and 21cm and then fold these two sections inwards to create your gates. I then cut two panels of Soft Sea Foam measuring 6.5cm x 10cm and adhered then to each gate on the front of my card.
Next I cut the intricate floral dies from the Jubilee Beauty dies out of Highland Heather with some adhesieve sheet to help it stick to my card front ( these are back in the new catalogue, yay!!).
I then cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Whisper White and the largest scalloped die from the Layering Ovals Dies out of Highland Heather, these are currently sold out but will be back in the new catalogue. I stamped my greeting in Highland Heather before sticking the two ovals together. I put liquid glue on one half on my oval and adhered it to the left side of the card front, leaving the other side glue free so you can open the card.
The final step was to add the floral elements. These were stamped in Tuxedo Memento ink and coloured with Soft Sea Foam, Highland Heather and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends. I adhered one to each side of my card. The floral elemnt on the right side of the card is only attached with two Stampin’ Dimensionals at the top and bottom so you can tuck the oval underneath to close the card if you wish.
For a little finishing touch I added some Purple Posy Faceted Gems to the centres of the flowers, alternatively you could use the Pearl or Rhinestone Basic Jewels and colour them with Stampin’ Blends.
