Tonight I have a couple of ideas to share with you, but only one card. I had shared a ribbon-laced Spellbinders Tulip Borderability the other night, paired with a sweet Just Rite baby shoes stamp. I'm using ribbon lacing again, but with an Eyelets Borderability instead; and I'm using the same 2-1/4" x 3-1/16" oval stamper, but with a new borders and centers set, Thinking of You, available around July 7.
I kept this card monochromatic and soothing, using Cosmo Cricket's Everafter papers (Something True), paired with PaperTrey Ink's Vintage Cream and Ocean Tides cardstock and satin ribbon. ***I didn't have an oval die that fit my large oval perfectly, but I liked it best with my Small Petite Ovals set (which are a longer oval than the Classic Ovals). I cut the inside oval with scissors because I wanted to trim it closely and stack it with foam tape.
***Edited to add: BIG OOPS--the Small Classic oval die DOES fit perfectly, as pictured on the left. I still don't mind the Petite Oval that I used, but if you have the Classic Oval set (small in particular), they fit “JustRite.” Can we chalk it up to working at 2am? ;-D
The ribbon is attached with a glue dot since the laced ribbon goes under the focal image. Tiny self-adhesive pearls add just a bit of dressiness without overwhelming the soft image and papers. The JustRite Thinking of You set is a very useful tool for sympathy cards, serious illness, or even encouragement.
Have a great last-day-of-June, and thanks for visiting!
P.S. If you had commented on this post and it isn't showing, I'm sorry about that. I had a post crash when I was trying to fix some weird formatting and accidentally deleted about 15 comments. Must be time for me to get off of the computer today!
