Botanical Prints – I’m Always Here for You Friends

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop

Welcome, today you are visiting Vanessa Baker from Auckland, New Zealand and I am participating in Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop!

Botanical Prints Medley

My card features the Botanical Prints Medley again, I just love this suite. I’ve almost got no DSP left now so I’m happy to be creating my own background with the stamps.

My inspiration for this card came from Jacque Williams I love her creation of the Toile background and her use of the Subtle Embossing Folder and how it makes the card look like linen. For my card I did the Toile background as a larger layer with just 1 stamp and used one of the pre-coloured and die cut images that come with the medley.

Measurements

  • Gray Granite 14.9 x 21cm scored at 10.5cm card base
  • Gray Granite layer 14.4 x 10cm
  • Whisper White layer 14.2 x 9.8xm
  • Gray Granite approx. 8.5 x 5cm for the Stitched Rectangle die cut

You Can Make It

  1. Randomly stamp the fruit stamp using Grey Granite Ink on the Whisper White layer
  2. Emboss using the Subtle Embossing Folder and your die-cutting & embossing machine with the grain running down the card
  3. Adhere to the Gray Granite layer
  4. Cut a length of Old Olive Twill Ribbon so the ends will wrap around the Gray Granite layer to be secured behind
  5. Cut a stitched rectangle from Gray Granite card stock
  6. Stamp your greeting in Versamark and cover with White Embossing Powder and heat set.
  7. Attach the rectangle to the front of the card using Dimensionals
  8. Make a bow from the Old Olive Twill Ribbon and attach with a glue dot to the ribbon already on the card
  9. Attach one of the pre-coloured and die cut images from the medley to the rectangle using mini Dimensionals and multipurpose glue

Finishing Touches

  1. Then I stamped the same stamp in Gray Granite on the inner of the card before adhering to the inside
  2. I also decorated the envelope flap with the same stamp

Coordinating product with Botanical Prints Medley

The Botanical Prints Medley comes with beautiful Designer Series Paper that can be used in your projects or as a final touch to decorate your envelope. The one on the envelope looks completely different when coloured as you’ll see on another project below.
