July Club Card #1 - an Original

This was a fun card to design. I used two new stamp sets - Remarkable You (Calla) and Watercolor Words. The new Brick Embossing Folder was fun to work with too on the Big Shot with the lighter weight Whisper White. I used the Oval Framelits to cut out the lightweight Whisper White cardstock, which were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the images. I used Crushed Curry and Pear Pizazz to color the stem and stamens. Then I traced the outer edge of the same framelits and cut out the English Garden Designer Series Paper by hand to mount the stamped images on.

I used the new heavier weight Whisper White to make the card base. Cut the sheet lengthwise at 4.25". I scored the paper at 1", 2", and 6.5". Then I glued on the two pieces of embossed bricks on. Then I used Dimensionals to raise the ovals off of the bricks. The only tricky part is to have an envelope near by so you can place the calla oval exactly where it needs to go, so it will fit in the envelope all folded up!  The bee was fussy cut out of the English Garden DSP and then the new Gold Metallic Thread was looped around the bee back multiple times with the help of a glue dot or two to hold it in place. Then the bee and thread were mounted on the card with another Dimensional.

Classy and simple, I just love it! Thanks for taking a look!
