Wplus9 Feb./Mar. Release: Reveal

Sunday, February 3, 2013

It's here, y'all!  You're getting a look at all this month's release goodies up close and personal, but before I get to that, how about another release-inspired creation?  This beauty shows off a little more from Embroidered Bouquet and Chantilly Trim, as well as that Scalloped Border die.  I told you that one was going to get a lot of miles in my creative space ;).  Enjoy!
I started this card by trimming the bottom edge of a piece of coral, pattern, patterned paper with a die cut strip of aqua, plaid, patterned paper and a strip of orange, woodgrain, patterned paper.  I then stamped the space just above the connection of the original, patterned, paper piece and the die cut strip, in Coral Calypso ink, with the embroidered flower border and the top of the original paper, in White ink, with the lace trim.  The prepped piece was then anchored, with gold-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches, to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.
The large, embroidered image was then stamped, in Coral Calypso, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive inks, on a distressed tag, which I trimmed, across its bottom edge, with pinking shears.  The "thank you" sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, right over the image, to the left edge of the tag; before it was adhered to the card face, with foam tape, just right of vertical center.
The stamped tag was then flanked with a split banner and topped with a Pool Party, seam binding ribbon, dressy bow, which I embellished with a yellow button, laced with a hemp twine bow, as well as a leaf, trinket pin.
A trio of orange gemstones ground the design and complete the look.
Without further adieu, here's this month's lineup.
