I am a huge fan of adding faux stitching to my
cards. I used a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen along the edges of the kraft to make small stitching lines.
The congratulations sentiment I used is from Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day stamp set. I stamped it in Versamark ink and used Ivory embossing powder from Recollections to finish the card.
For the second card, I wanted to make a general purpose card I could use for any occasion. While this card lacks a sentiment, I enjoy having the flexibility to use this card for any purpose!
I began with a shimmery purple cardstock I purchased at Michael's and die cut the largest portion of the flower. Next, I used the next smallest flower die on a patterned paper from Recollections called Purple Paisley. For the center of the flower, I used the same shimmery white paper that matches the David Tutera card base and added a purple button. I loved how shimmery this card was! The white and the purple look beautiful together. I added faux stitching once more with a metallic silver Sharpie.
While this card is not one of my favorites in particular, I like how the flower exemplifies the versatility of this die set. Whether you use it with embossed pieces or patterned paper, it will certainly make a gorgeous embellishment for a card.
