I must say I really love how this turned out! so glad I tried this out!
This is using one of the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler #2 images, I'm lovin' this release!! If you haven't ordered yours, what are you waiting for?
The sentiment reads:
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched- they must be felt with the heart.
- card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
- stamps: Cherry Blossom, TAC retired- The Heart Sees,
- paper: SU cardstock, SU Pink Flamingo,
- ink: Memento Tuxedo Black,
- others: SU mat pack, copics, copic glitter pens, CM cutting system, Prima Jewelry, glue dots, diamond stickles, teeny tiny butterfly punch,
I used this tutorial on SCS. I really like the added video as it helped me not use the exacto knife! LOL! It was MUCH easier than I expected.
After I cut out all the paper I pierced the edges of all the pieces. Then I adhered them to the matting cardstock and adhered them to the card.
This was one of those cards that made me giddy as I was working on it! I just love seeing it all come together like I envisioned it in my head. This is truly the reason I love this hobby, errr, obsession!!
Next I stamped the gorgeous, Cherry Blossom, in Memento ink onto my cardstock and colored her with my copics. I added some touches to her with my copic glitter pens and stickles to her bag.
I used my CM cutting system to cut out my image into an oval and to make the mats for her. I also stamped the sentiment in Memento tuxedo black and matted it. Then adhered them to the card, embellished ( I'm loving these new Prima Jewelry for cards, isn't it so pretty on the flower?) and tada..my first tri-fold shutter card!
