Goodbye June Hello July !
Which means a new Hand picked By Jamie bundle which is always exciting :-))
It’s always good to have a couple of ‘Thinking of you ‘ cards in just incase the circumstance arrive and you need one .
They can be used for many reasons- if someone’s Ill or they have lost a loved one or you are just thinking of someone on their birthday or at Christmas and just because !
I picked cream and white so they are quite neutral and I have kept these very easy to do .
So I started with a couple of aperture cards as I found quite a few packs when sorting out a couple of drawers lol there’s always something turn up you’ve forgotten you have .
These measure 5 3/4 inches x8 1/2 inches or 14.5x20.5 cm You don’t need aperture cards you can just Matt and layer it will look the same .
For the cream card I used the radiant rings embossing folder from last months bundle in white and backed the aperture and the white one I backed with cream card and stuck these all down,then with the Noble double stitched Rectangle dies I cut out a white frame to fit round the aperture for the cream card then I cut out a Noble cut corners Rectangle die in cream and stuck this on the white card .
I then cut out 2 white and 2 cream of the bundle die ‘climbing Floral vines’Keeping the petals from the flowers and I cut one of each colour of the Expressions “Thinking of you” die and stuck these in the centres of each card.
Taking the floral vines I stuck these along the sides one side upright the other upside down then pieced the petals back white in cream-cream in white sticking as you go and on the white card I used some cream sun gems and finished with a bow and the cream card I had Pearl overload But I like it lol .
You will find Jamie has done a quick Video on how to tie a bow and many other quick tips which are very useful on Facebook do check them out .
plus the new Video on utube for this months bundle where you can see other ideas and a demo .
Enjoy your week and keep an eye for next weeks card it’s a bit of fun .
