Wplus9 March Release: Sneak Peek

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Welcome to Wplus9 Design's March Release: Sneak Peek!  So glad to have you visiting!  Due to our shortened month, we have a condensed release, but that doesn't mean that it's not just as fantastic as previous or future releases.  We have two, new sets, including Brothers & Sisters, which I'll be showcasing today, and RetroGirly Birthday.  You'll have to come back, tomorrow, for a little peek at the latter from here.  Mwahaha!  We, also, are so stinkin' excited to be manufacturing our very first die, which coordinates with both All Occasion Tags and Brothers & Sisters.  There are so many good things in store for Wplus9 Design, ya'll!  I hope you'll stick around and invite your friends and family members!  With that said, let's dive into a little peek.
I started, this card, by piecing together the patterned papers; machine stitching, with aqua-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between their connections and, with aqua-threaded, straight stitches, in a frame around their outside edges; adhering it to the Barely Banana, cardstock, card face; and giving everything a healthy coating of Tea Dye and Antique Linen Distress Inks.  I, then, adhered a length of ivory, lace trim between the top, two, patterned papers.
A length of twill tape was, then, wrapped around the center of the card face; tied, in a bow, near the right edge of the card face; trimmed with pinking shears; and embellished with a yellow button, laced with Caribbean twine, as well as a stamped, in Baja Breeze, and distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, "For My Sister" sentiment tag, which was Cricut-cut from Very Vanilla cardstock.
My focal point was die-cut, with our brand spankin' new die (Yihoo!), out of a texture, patterned paper, before being clear embossed with the frame image and filled in with the stamped, in Baja Breeze ink, butterfly image from Woodgrain Silhouettes.  A little Gelly Roll pen detail adds dimension and shine...
to complete the look.
That's all, for today, from my neck of the woods.  Thank you ever so much for peeking in! And please be sure to check out what the rest of our talented team created, for you all, today, before you're off to having a marvelous Monday!
