CTMH offers stamps with thin cut matching dies and this card features “A Bunch Of Love” with Florence (all supplies shown at the end of the post):
I stamp the image first and then cut it out with the thin cut. I invested in a magnetic platform for my machines (Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz Vagabong) because the magnetic platform holds the dies in place when you are putting the sandwich together and rolling it.
Once the image is cut out, color it with the Shin Han Touch Makers. These are alcohol makers. They layer and blend nicely allowing you to be very creative in your coloring. Coloring is the new “in” tread with all the coloring books out. You can use your stamps to make your own coloring projects!
The fancy folding here is great with the CTMH Background and Texture papers because they are two sided (having two different patterns on one sheet). Simply cut the paper at an angle (easy to do with a Fisker’s cutter), score, and fold! Note the zip strip is used like a ribbon across the two panels. Always save that strip to use. The Florence sequins are the finishing touch to the card. The Bunch of Love coordinating stamp and thin cuts makes your life so much easier. I’m thankful for anything that saves me the fussy cutting. If you have arthritis in your hands, you’ll love thin cuts. I thank Linda B for the wonderful inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!
