You Are Too Kind Card

I really feel like the luckiest person alive. I get to create every.single.day! How great is that? And today I get to bring to you a project I designed featuring Stacey Caron’s Art Nouveau line. And Stacey, she’s just amazing! As always, I love to change things up and that is precisely what I did with this card.

Here’s the supply list:

Platinum Machine by Spellbinders®

Art Nouveu Stile Floreal Medallion Dies-S6-103

Standard Circles Nestabilities® LG-S4-114

White Card Stock

Gold Card Stock or Poster Board

Foam Dots

Paper Flowers

Ribbon

Scoring Tool

Stamp Sentiment and Ink

To make this card, die-cut and emboss two pieces of card stock, one that is white, the other gold using the Medallion die.

Locate the most congruent part of the gold medallion piece by lightly rolling it to see where the design lines up best and then make a score line down the center. Fold the gold in half where you scored the line. Attach the white Medallion piece to the top. Make a slight horizontal snip at the bottom of the design (where the tulip-type flower is located-see finished card above) so that the card will have  a resting spot. Now you are ready to layer it up!

 

Die-cut a gold circle from the Circle Nestabilities set. Then die-cut one piece of white card stock and one piece of gold paper using the middle die from the Art Nouveau set. Die-cut and emboss another piece of gold paper. Finally, die-cut the small circle from the Circle Nestabilities set. Now we are ready to layer it up!

I like dimension…a lot! I almost always use foam dots. So as you begin to layer, add a foam dot in between the different layers. Notice also that I turned the white middle die piece to a different angle than that of the gold one. It just seemed to give it its own space.

Remember to stamp your sentiment before attaching it to the card front. Now you can embellish the card with ribbon and flowers.

This card may take a bit of time but I think the impact is big. I always like to think that when I give this card to someone, I have thought about THEM as I was making it. After all, isn’t that one of the reasons you create? I believe this card accomplished that. It’s your turn now. What are you going to make?
