My expedited order came a day early and it was perfect timing! Why you ask? Because I was scheduled to demonstrate a few cards at Lisa Gentile's downline meeting tonight! Lisa is my sideline and she is a fabulous stamper, demonstrator & person so I was more than thrilled when she asked me to come to her group meeting tonight.
Okay, on to the cards! The first one was a simple monogrammed card. When finishing this card, I realized that all of my smaller alphabet stamps are retired. You could use any alphabet stamp from pages 158-160 for this.
Enough about the old, what's new on this card? Taffeta ribbon for one. This is the Chocolate Taffeta and I think it is divine - a little shiny and very smooth. It also cuts much more nicely than the retired organdy ribbon that would always fray a little.
Also, that scalloped circle is the new Scallop circle punch. The 'l' was punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch and it is a perfect fit! I can't wait to find more images to stick inside this frame.
Finally, I used the old corner rounder punch to make the scalloped border at the bottom. I then traced the scallop with my two-way glue pen and sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on top. All in all, I think this is a very simple, yet elegant card.
Tune in tomorrow for another card from my demonstration.
