I know it's only Thursday, but I wanted to share the Fabulous Friday project that I asked my team member and friend Jennifer Rawlings to create for us this week as a guest designer on the Sisters in Stamping blog. We are featuring Big Shot products and I think you'll agree that Jennifer's project is fabulous and includes quite a few new Big Shot accessories! Great job, Jennifer!!! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see my contribution...
Here is what Jennifer wrote about her project:
A simple but elegant love note is easy to create with a little DSP and the Big Shot. I love how grey and yellow go together, so Eastern Elegance DSP is a must have product for me. And the addition of Coastal Cabana gives the combination a great pop of color. After selecting my sheet of DSP, I used the middle sized envelope liner from the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies and "Love" from the Expressions Thinlits Dies - running them through my Big Shot all at the same time - to create the envelope for the front of my card. (Note: You can skip the "Love" thinlit here. Further explanation is below.) I trimmed the sides of the envelope 1/4" on either side to make it all fit. Next, I added Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim to the underside of my envelope flap for some added texture.
Afterwards, I realized that the DSP was a little too busy to leave the "Love" void in the envelope flap. So I ran the thinlit through my Big Shot again, this time with Smokey Slate CS. I then adhered the expression into the previous void so that it was imbedded in the envelope flap.
Finally, I attached the envelope to a Smokey Slate cardfront that had been embossed with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It all came together with another piece of DSP and a Whisper White card base.
