Another Simply Gorgeous Card!


Today we're going to be creating Another Simply Gorgeous Card! This card was created by another Sandi's Swapper, Bonnie Robbins. Flourish Thinlets

As with Tuesday's card, my recommendation is to use the Precision Base Plate and the Die Brush to make this a simple but fabulous design. 

Note: my photograpic skills leave much to be desired--this card is actually Melan Mambo--but you'd be hard pressed to identify that color from the photo!

Again, just changing the colors of the middle layer and the die cut can change the 'mood' of the card and fit the occasion that you need, Change 'Just a Note' to Congratulations, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, or My Sympathy---and you have a card that is both versatile and gorgeous!

3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4 X 5; adhere this to the Melan cardstock on card front.

4. Cut Melan Mambo cardstock approximately 3 1/2 X 4 1/2; cut flourish with the Flourish thinlet. Use this Big Shot sandwich: Magnetic Base, Precision Base plate, cardstock, die,  standard cutting pad.  Run die through 2-3 times. Leave die in place  on cardstock and use the Die Brush over the thinlet to remove paper bits. After removing die from cardstock, use piercing tool to remove any other remaining bits of cardstock. Adhere this flourish to card front with liquid glue.

5. Stamp 'Just a Note'  (Flourishing Phrases stamp set) in Melan Mambo ink in lower right corner.
