Hello, Everyone! Welcome to Melissa’s Fab Friday Feature
“I love creating for Fall and am so happy that it’s right around the corner! For my card today, I’ve used one of my most favorite techniques called paper-piecing. I’ve also created a “Stepped Up” card, showing a fun option in adding just a bit more character and dimension.”
STEP 1: Stamp a sunflower on Kraft cardstock and assorted scraps of paper in coordinating colors.
STEP 2: Die cut the Kraft sunflower and fussy cut individual petals from each flower stamped on patterned paper. Adhere patterned petals to Kraft sunflower.
STEP 3: After each petal has been cut and adhered to Kraft sunflower, color in smaller petals using a Copic marker or colored pencil in a coordinating color. Stamp center of sunflower using circle image in the Simply Sweet: Blessed stamp set using Honey Nut ink. Stamp small dots in Olive Twist ink.
STEP 4: On a die cut Love to Layer: Notched tag, stamp sentiment in Honey Nut ink followed by leaves stamped in Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado.
STEP 5: Layer the Lover to Layer: Aztec piece under Kraft frame cut using the Border Bling: Skinny Diagonals Frame. Use Sheer Basics Vellum in the center of frame. Using dimensional adhesive, adhere stamped Love to Layer: Notched die cut to the center of the card.
STEP 6: Adhere paper-pieced sunflowers to card front. Embellish with twigs cut using the Dear Friend dies and coordinating sequins.
To step up my card I stamped my sentiment on die cut It’s A Sign: Hanging Frames Stitched. I added it to the center of my card with dimensional adhesive. I then added adhesive crystals and a bow tied in twine.
