About Me

My photo
My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Soft suede cardstock

Scrap piece to stamp and die cut 1 x berries

Silver foil sheets

Scrap piece for die cutting 2 x ferns

Real red ribbon

Approx 16" to tie a bow around the front layer

Card recipe:

1. Cut, score and burnish your card base.
2. Cut and emboss with the embossing folder your front whisper white layer.
3. Cut and glue inside your card the 2 x layers in garden green and whisper white.
4. Cut and stamp (using the Stampin' write marker pens) your sentiment and then angle the side of it to give it a bit of interest.
5. Cut your real red card piece and your dsp piece for your banner, giving both of them tails, which you can do by marking the centre of one end of each piece and then going up 5cm and cuting from each corner to the centre mark. Now you can glue the dsp onto the card piece at the top and bottom giving it a slight curve.
6. Glue the banner piece onto the left side of the embossed whisper white piece of card and then you can wrap the ribbon around this whole piece and tie it into a bow. Secure the bow using a glue dot.
7. Glue this whole piece now to the front of your base card using tear n tape over the ribbon so it gets securd down in place.
8. Having die cut all of your elements for your flower out you can now using a craft knife cut the small flower out of the centre of the die cut flower as in picture below. 
(this enables you to get more depth to your flower and it covers the glue dot showing through your vellum flower).

9. Attach all of your ferns and pieces to the back of your flower, where you would like them to be and then using dimensionals attach your flower to the front of your card onto the banner.

10. Attach your sentiment to the front of your card, add some rhinestones and using a glue dot attach your beaded pearl onto your flower. Card finished.

Hope you like the project I absolutely loved putting this together, the suite is such a beautiful combination of papers, vellums stamps, dies and more you really need to give it a look.

Until next time take care and keep crafting.
