Special Reason Bundle
Wrapping Up the Baker's Dozen Thank You Card Event
Not only did we have fantastic and fun conversation around the craft tables, we enjoyed a scrumptious lunch together. On the menu was Italian Wedding soup, a colorful salad bar, homemade baguettes fashioned by my talented husband, and a traditional Icelandic whipped cream cake with a personal little twist.
Truly a great time!
Our last card, completing the set of thirteen, used the Special Reason Bundle. This card utilized a few techniques including heat embossing and first and second generational stamping using Perfect Plum ink and cardstock.
As always, Thick White Cardstock served as the vertically folded A2 card base.
Adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 panel of Perfect Plum framed a Basic Black panel, which framed the Whisper White cardstock. On this layer, Delicate Details was heat embossed in white.
On top of the embossing, using a combination of stamps from the Touches of Texture and Gorgeous Grunge sets, a layering of various sized splatters covered the Whisper White Cardstock in Memento Black and Perfect Plum.
Two circles, of different sizes, placed one below the other and slightly overlapping in Basic Black and Whisper White Cardstocks, served as a backdrop to the four floral images.
Two of the blossoms from the Special Reason Stamp Set where heat embossed in clear and white on Perfect Plum Cardstock and the other two displayed first and second generational stamping in Perfect Plum ink on Whisper White Cardstock. The clear and white embossed flower and the Perfect Plum first generational stamped image was popped up with dimensionals.
Lastly, adding a little more monochromatic interest placed opposite the black and white cirlces, clusters of leaves from the Rose Garden Thinlits and the May Flowers Framelits sets where each die cut twice and layered on top of one another to add interest, balance, and more dimension.
Breaking a rule, an even number of images created this card, but they were grouped in odd numbers and provided a number of eye pleasing visual triangles. Also, the repeated black and white color scheme created balance and flow.
I hope you enjoyed the card designs making up the Baker's Dozen Thank You Card Event!
