Hello all … Dianne here. Thank you Cheryll for asking me to be a guest designer this month. I am honoured to take part in the Sense of Whimsy blog.
As Cheryll mentioned, I have seen crafts come and go over this time and yes, I have tried my hand at many. For instance, does anyone remember the Hobbytex craze? Paint in a tube – quite revolutionary at that time. You could paint on anything. It was quite expensive back then. I saved up to buy everything in the range because I had to have it all … I guess some of you will relate! 🙂
For the last 10 years, my favourite crafts are scrapbooking, card making and all things paper craft and I now teach cardmaking and memory keeping. I have been using Stampin’ Up! products for a few years now and I believe they are some of the best quality products around.
Get out your best ruler to measure the card for punching the Scalloped Tag Topper tabs. These tabs form the closure element for the card … slip the Baker’s Twine through the slots and tie in a bow.
Once you untie the Baker’s Twine bow, the card opens up to reveal the same Thinking of You greeting stamped in Melon Mambo ink on the inside of the card, positioned carefully so it sits behind the scalloped tab. Plenty of room for a handwritten greeting, just remember to ensure that it doesn’t protrude from behind the top flap when the card is closed.
I unravelled some of the thick baker’s twine into many threads, and then wrapped them around the layer above and below the heart for a less bulky finish.
A pretty envelope completes the package.
