News first!! After being a long time shopper and a big, big time fan, I’ll be jumping on board with with the fabulous Dream Team at Stampers Dream!! They are the sweetest ladies ever and oozing with star quality talent! This week we are kicking off Impression-Obsession Week – with the newest IO releases!! I hope you’ll hop over to see what the fabulous Michelle Rodgers has lined up for this week!!
Today I’m sharing a card from one of the new Our Daily Bread Design sets…Ask, Seek, Knock. I simply love this Pretty Poppy paper, as I have said before it is bold. I’m thankful that some days I inclined to use it! Can you tell that I’m on a window kick? I’ve found that if you have Spellbinders dies in both the large and small sizes this is easy to do!
I cut and embossed my top layer first with Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Large, making three windows. Then I selected the Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Small template that is the next step smaller than the large template I used. With my red paper in place (I used repositionable tape) behind my newly created windows, I dropped the Classic Rectangles Small template into the window, centered it then traced the inside of the template with a pencil onto the red paper. I did this for all three windows. I removed the top layer and was left with the red paper which was marked to show me where to lay the templates when cutting – I then cut the three windows and they line up perfectly. I then stamped three parts of the sentiment and cut them out with the same template I used on the red layer. To get them in place I simply ran my glue runner across the back then dropped each sentiment into a window and they seat perfectly. Lastly I added ribbon and pearls!
Tip: Don’t chance it – use two small pieces of tape to hold your die on to your paper, even if you have the magnetic mat on your Wizard. With 9 cuts, the stakes get higher with each cut and you don’t want to take the chance that something will shift (ask me how I know this).
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and happy Monday!!
