Hello and Happy Monday! Last week was a hectic one and my son was in a swim meet all weekend so I wasn't able to get my project completed in time, but I hope you'll enjoy the post a few days late. This week (last week?) over on the Sisters in Stamping blog Jennifer asked us to share projects made with our favorite Product Suite from the new catalog for Fabulous Friday. As I am sure you know by now from this card that I shared last week and this card that I shared two weeks ago that my favorite is the Magnolia Lane suite shown below. I decided to make a card and coordinating candy favor decorated with a paper flower that I created using the Magnolia Memory dies. I've seen these all over Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.
There are so many great products in this suite and I used a few - the stamp/die bundle and DSP.
Here are a few photos of my card. I used a border die to cut the real red card stock - I love how it mimics the lines of the border stamp and has a nice embossed edge. And the flower and leaves were also cut from dies - there are solid and detailed dies for both. I love that!
Here's a close-up of the inside of the card - I added a strip of the DST at the bottom and a detail flower cut from whisper white for a subtle accent in the center. I really like the texture it added - so pretty!
Here is my little candy favor. It's basically a 2-4-6-8 box but I cut it at 5" instead of 5-1/2" so it's a little shorter. The flower was added with dimensionals and I held it closed with a tiny binder clip.
Here is a close-up of the flower. This came together pretty quickly with just a few passes through my die-cutting machine and Tombow glue. Love this! For even more fabulous card ideas and inspiration from the new Product Suites please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created this week.
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous week!
