Tonight’s focus is on the amazing Bouquet of Love Hybrid Folder which also includes a heart die and sits inside the folder to cut at the same time as embossing the cardstock!!! Yes, it is amazing!
This first card is very dramatic – it started off being a Blushing Bride card, but I found it a little underwhelming. I placed the embossed piece back into the folder and inked the opposite side of the folder with Black Memento ink. Carefully, I closed the folder and ran it back through my machine and wow, what a result. I wanted it a little darker though, so repeated the process and here is the result.
I glued it to a layer of Basic Black card, which is how I got that black heart in the centre. Then I glued it to the Blushing Bride card. Next I added the gingham ribbon bow, die cut the flowers/leaves and stamped a sentiment. These were all added with Mutipurpose Glue and the ribbon with a Glue Dot. Oops, I just realised that one of the Irridescent Rhinestone Jewels has fallen off the larger flower.
On the inside, I added a white panel and simply glued the heart to the centre which was the piece that cut out in the first run through the die cutting & embossing machine.
This next card is just simply embossed and die cut and then I placed a piece of the Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP behind the heart. Then I mount this onto a piece of Blushing Bride card. I added a small piece of white ribbon from the top of the heart snd up over the top of the card and adhered it behind before gluing onto the Thick Basic White card base.
I tied a bow with the same ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. Basic Rhinestone Jewels were the last to be added to finish it off with a bit of bling! The inside was decorated the same as the previous card. I deliberately left a sentiment off this card, as it could be used for so many different occasions from Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday to Mother’s Day!
