Oh I do LOVE today’s card! It can be for a Shower, Mother’s Day, a friend’s Valentine – I really designed it for a Wedding card. I used the sentiment in the set that most went with a wedding – but you could easily make the card and then switch it to another saying. It’s also perfect for a Birthday!
The dies that come in the Forever Lovely Bundle are a step up from just your “cut out” framelits. This one does a reverse cut out – as it does work with the stamps but as an overlay. It not only cuts out the beautiful top piece, but then it adds some wonderful dry embossed highlights.
Here is a close up! The dies are also super easy to run through the Big Shot – I have had no issues with mine – for some tips and tricks make sure to watch the video!
I used the Stamparatus to make the lining up of the cuts perfect to my image, if you don’t have this alignment tool yet….Why?! Lol! Watch for some upcoming posts on the accessories that go with it. That said – You CAN make the card without the Stamparatus….I just think it’s a little easier with it. Here are the items I used in creating the card, but keep reading for this month’s specials!
For the next several days I will be focusing on all things Valentine! The qualifies as the set is designed to include a Valentine Greeting! Here is another quick card that I made with the Stamps, Dies – but this time used the paper and ribbon that are part of the same suite!
I like the You are Loved sentiment – so many ways to use that one. I even think it would be good on a Sympathy card – or when making a card for someone recovering from an illness. Just because the set is on a page with “Valentine” paper – try to see the value in other ways that you will be able to use the set past the holiday!
