Bootiful Polka Dots, Posies and Texture

The First Wednesday Card Club luncheon was yesterday morning.  We shared a yummy lunch of Salad, individual Tomato & Basil Quiches and mini Pecan Pie Muffins.  This month’s hostess brought Key Lime Pie and Whipped Cream…. a perfect ending to a wonderfully light lunch!

Of course, we don’t just lunch at the First Wednesday Card Club, LOL… we also make cards!  Bootiful occasions rain boot and paper posiesThis is one of three cards we made at the club meeting! 

Featuring the Bootiful Occasions Stamp Set, and complimentary colors of Island Indigo, Whisper White, Bashful Blue and Daffodil Delight.complimentary daffodil delight and island indigo colorsA bunny ear bow of tiny stitched grosgrain ribbon was attached using tiny glue dots and an open scallop border punched trim adorn the bottom edge of the card.

Speaking of ribbon… did you know that during the month of September you get a free roll of 3/8” stitched satin ribbon with each $40 merchandise order increment?  Pick any of the 2012-12 In-Color ribbons to add to your order… FREE!!september special is free ribbon with 40 mdse orderThe rain boot and sentiment were stamped with Island Indigo classic ink, colored with a bashful blue marker, and attached to the herringbone embossed die cut background using stampin’ dimensionals.

Tiny posies were punched from bashful blue card stock using the itty bitty shapes punch pack floral shape.  As I watched stampers assemble this card, I provided a few tips for attaching the tiny pierced pieces and brads….

Today’s Tips for Paper Crafters:

  • When adding brads to your card, pierce through as many layers as possible.
  • Attach tiny punched pieces with multipurpose liquid adhesive and allow to dry completely before piercing the centers.
  • To precisely find the center of a floral image, use the circular template from the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.  Line up the punched piece with a similarly sized circle and then pierce the center.
  • After piercing using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, remove the plastic template and pierce the same hole again with a paper piercing tool to enlarge the diameter.  This will make inserting the brads much easier.

We’d love to have you join us for a first Wednesday card club meeting… Contact Me to find out more information and RSVP.

Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your comments.
