Thinking of You Card with Corina Finley



Hello Fellow Crafters!

Welcome to another Friday Card.

Have you seen the Cheery Lynn's April New Release! What do you think? Which dies are your favourites? Sooo many new wonderful dies to choose from! I am loving all the new creative possibilities these dies bring to my craft table!

Now to this weeks card!

I used all New Release dies except for the Cattails and Reeds. There is always an exception!

  

The photo above, features the new Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 die in blue cardstock and I layered my sentiment stamped on white cardstock on top. It comes with the extra filigree which I adhered to the top right corner of my card. You can use the extra filigree to layer on top of the base or on its own. You can use this die vertically or horizontally which is also very useful!

 
The Cattails and Reeds die went so well with my pattern paper, I just had to use it! I cut it out twice from the same blue cardstock as the card base and the Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 die. To create a dimensional look on the cattails I used flower soft.


Above you can see the New Release Pierced Stacker #3. I used 1 of the 6 dies in the set to cut the Heron pattern Paper.  To create the thin blue card stock mat, I simply flipped the die over, traced it onto blue card stock and then hand trimmed it out.  I really think this die creates an elegant feel to my card.

I used two dies from the New Release Curved Border Set for the bottom layers of my card. The set has four dies to create a mix and match design details to your card.

  3. I think your card is beautiful and I absolutely love the dies and the colors you used - very unique. I have one question: how did you get such a lovely narrow border between the heron layer and the blue card stock? I looked up the die set, and the margins between the layers are much wider than are shown on your card. LOVE those narrow borders! If you can answer, please send to me at sueigor@embarqmail.com. Thank you!
