Hello to you! I have been loving the August-December catalog! I love all of the samples in there. What an inspiration they are! The sample on page 72 showing the Dove of Hope bundle really caught my eye. If you haven't already noticed this section in the back, all of the bundles are highlighted again. All of them have different samples from what is shown earlier with the bundles. I love that too! Here is my version of this card.
Mine is a little bit of a fun fold.
Start with a card base of Crumb Cake that is 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2. Cut off 1 1/2 inches from the front of the card.
The Cherry Cobbler check paper is from the 'Tis the Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. It is cut to 4 x 4 1/4. This will fit the front panel of the card. Make sure you have the orientation of the card correct. The paper does not have a specific way it needs to go but the measurements do.
The wood look paper is from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. It is cut to 1 3/4 x 4 1/4. It fits on the inside of the card to the right. It does show since we cut away part of the card front. If you are cutting for multiples of cards you might want to adjust the measurement to 1 3/4 x 4. You'll get more from a sheet of designer paper.
From the Detailed Dove dies, cut 2 of the long stems, one in Old Olive and the other in Mossy Meadow. Hint: You might want to put Adhesive sheets on the back of the card stock before cutting. This turns the stems into stickers. It's so much easier to adhere. Cut the dove and one wing from Whisper White.
Punch 2 sprigs of Soft Suede using the Sprig Punch.
To assemble, add the long stems on the lower third of the front. Offset them. Add the Soft Suede sprigs to the center behind where you want the dove to be. I just used glue dots for this at the end leaving the rest of the sprigs free.
With a sponge dauber, add a little Soft Suede ink to the tail feathers and wing. I might have gotten a little heavy handed with the color. Remember that you can always add more color but you can't take it away. Do as I say, not as I do! Add a scrap of Basic Black behind the eye. Add the wing to the dove and then add it to the card front.
Stamp the saying for the card in Soft Suede on Whisper White. This is from the Dove of Hope stamp set. Cut out with the Tasteful Labels dies. When you adhere this remember that part of the saying extends over the edge of the card front. Don't put glue on that part!
For the inside of the card, use a piece of Whisper White cut to 3 1/2 x 4. Stamp the saying in Soft Suede from Dove of Hope. Add an Old Olive sprig at the bottom. Again, I would think about using the Adhesive Sheets for this!
I really do love this card. I know, I'm doing a lot of loving today. That's OK. The world needs it!
