I had to put in an "emergency order" for more packages of Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper after I opened my first pack and made this card!! :) These "watercolor dots" are just too beautiful.. in fact, every paper in this pack is AMAZING!!!!
The base card is a top fold 4-1/4" x 11" Bermuda Bay card, and I layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Naturally Eclectic paper on top. Over that I added a 3"x4" piece of paper that I watercolored (see THIS POST and VIDEO for instructions), tied it with some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, and then added a "friend" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits (see THIS VIDEO). Then, I needed a Thank You card for the birthday gifts Cindee gave me, so, I added the "thank you" banner using the Bunch of Banners framelits and the stamped image from Thankful Thoughts stamp set. THEN, I added Glitter Dots!! Ok.. I think I did just about everything I could think of to make this card special and Cindee loved it! yay!
One more thing about the Lovely Words friend die cut.. I put the stitched shape oval framelit around the friend die cut, and cut them at once (per the video above) and then layered it onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy die cut... LOVE the contrast!
I am completely in love with this brand new Naturally Eclectic designer paper!!!
I love the watercolor feel, the colors, the patterns and all the possibilities!!
I used the one on the left below on this card!
