Lacy Spring Greeting Card
It’s a week into Spring and I was in the mood for a Lacy Spring Greeting Card. My favorite lace-making tools are the Thinlits™ Dies. I thought about really covering this card with a lot of different die-cuts, but I ran out of room for the medium size Butterflies die-cut. The small Bold Butterfly die-cut was a little large, too.
The Rose Garden Thinlits™ Dies are quite large so I could only fit two of the small roses on the card front. I just had room for the greeting! I thought about adding the rose leaves from the large rose die, but those were too big, too. I used part of the leaf sprig to enhance the flowers and put the remaining two-leaf cut-outs inside the stamp case so I could find them again easily. (You can use this tip for storage as long as you have room!)
The Big Shot™ Die Brush makes it easy to clean out the die. You can also very carefully run the brush over the die to loosen the die-cut. Be real careful, however, or you’ll tear the fine lines. For stubborn die-cuts that won’t drop their cut-outs, the Die Brush works well, too. Just go slowly.
By the way, the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set is a Sale-A-Bration item, free for $50 in products.
Real Life Color Coach note: I used Rose Red from the Red-Violet Color Group, Blushing Bride from the Orange-Red Color Group, Tempting Turquoise from the Blue-Green Color Group, Garden Green from the Green Color Group and Crushed Curry from the Yellow-Orange Color Group. These colors are more or less next to each other on the Color Wheel, so I call them my Wide-Angle Analogous Color Scheme. Depending on the intensity of the colors you use, you can create cards and scrapbook pages of a variety of moods from celebration to remember.
