Today is my turn to share my Pick of the Week on the House That Stamps Built Blog. As I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day, I found this card and knew it would be perfect for my "Inspired by Pinterest" series:
Flip Fancy Die set. Then I stamped the image using my stamp-a-ma-jig to get it placed how I wanted it. I embossed the white panel and added a gold scalloped border strip to each end of the panel. Then I wrapped some gold floss around the front and tied a bow before adhering the panel to the card base. Stamped, heat set, and cut out the sentiment and added it on top of the floss. This one actually came together pretty quickly, and is a great example of how you don't have to have the exact products in order to recreate a favorite inspiration card.
Aren't those poinsettias gorgeous??!! Of course, right away, I thought of my favorite poinsettia image from Repeat Impressions, and decided to recreate this card with my own twist.
I the photo below, you can see the shine from the gold paint pen I used in the center of the flowers, the sparkle of the gold glitter borders and the glint of the gold floss!
