Sorry about my absence on here…I had a visit from an awesome person that I don’t get to see very often. His arrival even trumped me opening an Annual Catalog pre-order box! Today’s card is so simple, but looks stunning with the new Stitched Lace Dies that I know you will want – and you can get your hands on them when the catalog goes live on June 4th. Or, for even more fun, mark your calendar for my Annual Catalog Kick-Off Open House on Monday, June 17th and you can see it in real life. I’ll have more details for you coming up.
So back to this die set. It has one piece that is 5 7/8” x 4 5/16”, which will cover a complete card front. Then, there is an awesome second piece in which you can cut the scalloped shape shorter, either vertically or horizontally. When I made this card, the row I die cut out became a pretty doily style strip that I’ll use on another card. Oh my! And it even has a coordinating stamp set!
This card also uses a new 2019-2021 In Color called Rococo Rose. (Hunter said it sounded like a rapper’s name…hahahaha!) I love how soft and muted it is. So pretty in real life. (Please note the ink color and cardstock color are the same. Unfortunately, I am terrible at taking pictures. I definitely need Sydney’s camera skills.) I also used the Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set that were introduced in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Perfect Simplicity!
