May Class Projects

The first of our cards for the May class was this gorgeous Easel Card, consisting of a colour combo of Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla.  The patterned paper is from the new "Springtime Vintage" range.

The flower was built using the "Build a Blossom" stamp set with co-ordinating punch "Blossom Petals" punch.  It is important when using this stamp set with the punch that you stamp your images in the same direction as they are punched out with the punch, it just makes it much easier to use. 

We used the "Top Note" Bigz die with the Big Shot Machine to die cut the Vanilla and Artichoke layers.  We stamped with the Foliage stamp from "Just Believe" onto the Vanilla Top Note layer using the stamping off technique to create a two tone effect.

Here is a side view:
