TE Release Day Notecards

Okay shoppers...it's time! You can now buy the new Downtown Diva and Fresh Flowers sets as well as the Mother's Day Key Ingredients at Taylored Expressions!



For my last sneak peek, I made a set of four notecards with the Fresh Flowers set. The only difference in the notecards is how I wound the ribbon. On two cards, the ribbon is tucked behind the DP panel. On the other two, it's tied around the entire front flap of the card (so the ribbon can be seen when the cards are opened up).

The images were stamped on Taylor's Choice Buttercream CS and I used that CS for the card bases too. The oval panels are up on Dimensionals and so are the Curved Rectangle DP panels. The DP, ribbons, and clear rhinestones are all part of the Mother's Day Key Ingredients.

How to make the card bases...
I had a couple people email me asking how the curved rectangle bases are made. Just cut your CS to a regular A2 size (4.25" x 5.5"), score it and fold it closed, place the folded A2 card in your cuttlebug and then lay the curved mega rectangle die over it with the top of the die sitting off the edge of the folded card, then run it through the Cuttlebug. For these notecards, I used the second to largest curved rectangle die.

Wonderful notecards...I am for sure going to make at least one of these, but I think that it will soon become an all time favorite. I'm going to change around the images on the front of the card, but I love the look of the card. So simple, yet so impresssive.

Have a happy stamping day!
