Twitterpated card



This was the Make & Take for my recent workshops, showing some of the fabulous products in the Twitterpated suite.

I began by stamping the greeting in Island Indigo on some Confetti White cardstock. I stamped the greeting first because it’s easier to fit the flowers around the greeting (as it doesn’t really matter where they go) than it is to fit the greeting around the flowers. Next I stamped the greeting, using Basic Gray because I find it less harsh than black and because it goes with the paper. I used Confetti White for two reasons: one, because it’s great when used with blender pens as it’s more absorbent than Whisper White and two, because I was getting very low on Whisper White! I coloured the image using the blender pens to pick up ink from ink pad lids.

The Baja Breeze card base was embossed using the lovely new embossing folders from the Summer Mini catalogue and then stamped using the co-ordinating stamp from Bordering on Romance. See how the flowers fit inside the scallops – I love the way Stampin’ Up! products co-ordinate so well!

After assembling the card, the final touch was a Twitterpated button threaded with some Island Indigo Baker’s Twine, stuck down with a Glue Dot®. Glue Dots® are the perfect adhesive for buttons as they’re not only very, very sticky but they’re button-shaped, too!
