Beautiful Gift of You
When a new catalog and all it’s enticements come out I frantically start making room for new goodies. While fooling around with some retired product this Beautiful Gift of You framed piece emerged. What do you think?
This set gets better and better with age. Kind of like us, right? The only current item used here is the Beautiful You Stamp Set. The frame, ribbon, linen thread and button are leftover from the April 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit “Framed with Love. You can use any frame. I keep mine and change out the image periodically. It’s the perfect size for a little desk clutter.
- Cut a 4″ square piece of Soft Suede Cardstock (115318) for mat.
- Cut a 3-1/2″ square piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP). Serene Scenery* is used here. Stamp dancing figure from Beautiful You Stamp set directly on DSP with Soft Suede Classic Ink (126978). Stamp “Live Laugh Love” in Early Espresso Classic Ink (126974) directly on the DSP.
- Stamp Dancing Figure with Soft Suede Classic Ink on a scrap of DSP. Small patterns work best. Fussy cut the hat and dress as one unit. Adhere to original image stamped in step 2.
- Adhere the 3-1/2″ square DSP piece to the 4″ square piece of cardstock and place in frame.
- Tie bow with 1-1/4″ to 1-1/2″ ribbon. Adhere to frame with Hot Melt Glue.
- Thread a piece of Linen Thread (104199) through a Vintage Faceted Button*. Tie a bow. Attach to ribbon with Hot Melt Glue and you’re done!
Note: You’ll need a square frame with a 3-5/8″ square opening for these measurements. The frame used in this project has an overall size of 6″ x 6″.
Don’t need a framed piece? Here’s an alternate card idea using much of the same product.
To create this A2 sized card you’ll need these additional supplies:
- Variety of sequins (these are saved from the June 2016 “Banner Surprise” Paper Pumpkin Kit.
- 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon (141487)
- Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (141489)
- Blushing Bride Cardstock (131198)
- Very Vanilla Cardstock (101650)
- Whisper White Cardstock (100730)
So, next time you need a thoughtful gift, think about this stamp set. It really has a lot of potential.
