Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Suite and Encircled in Beauty Dies
June 03, 2021
Today I wanted to share a card that was quick and easy to create, but which I love because it uses 3 of my favourite things from the new Annual Catalogue.
The 3 favourite items I have used on this card (you can check them out in the links at the end of the post) are:
- The Hand-Penned Petals Suite (but you already knew that from previous posts, right?)
- The gorgeous Encircled in Beauty Dies. I love how circle dies break up the straight lines in cards.
- The Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. I LOVE these! They are pre-printed and ready to go, plus incredible value. Just $17.50 for 20 cards and coordinating patterned envelopes. They make a perfect card base for stamped cards, or cards made using the elements in the Hand-Penned Memories and More card pack.
The secons layer of the card is a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP (5cm wide x 13.5cm) with a banner end cut in one end. The largest Encircled in Beauty die is a great size to use with this image. I stamped the image in Basic Gray, and over-stamped the flower using Pale Papaya. For the leaves, I used my Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour them. This picks up the colours in the Hand-Penned DSP I have used as the first layer. To finish my card off, I have used some of the Genial Gems from the Hand-Penned Suite.
Thanks for checking out today's card.
