In My Heart stamp. This time, I wanted to play with texture and dies. I had already stamped, colored and die-cut the boy and the girl while I was making the second card, so they were ready to use.
I started by preparing my card base. I cut a sheet of Simon Says Stamp Lemon cardstock in half, and scored it for a top-folding A2 card. Using the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder, I added a large polka dot texture to the front.
While I had my Bigshot out, I cut out the rest of the panels I would be using. I used the stitched rectangle from Mama Elephant's Femme Frames die to cut a rectangle from Simon Says Stamp's Sea Glass cardstock. I cut a piece of white cardstock with Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo I die, as well as the same shape out of Doodlebug vellum. Then, I used the stitched scallop border from Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Borders I die to cut the vellum piece.
I layered the vellum to the bottom of the white cardstock and adhered it together with a bit of glue. I tied a piece of yellow twine from Pretty Pink Posh's Summer embellishment kit around the bottom of the panel. I attached the boy and the girl from Mama Elephant's In My Heart set to the panel with foam squares.
I then adhered the panels to the card. As a last touch, I added a few flower sequins from the summer embellishment kit near the sentiment.
