Cards with a Flourish!

Friday, June 1, 2018
Sometimes I cannot tell which card I run out of most is Sympathy cards or Anniversary cards. That is why I am giving the gals a choice at the June Stamp a Stack classes as to which version they want to make.

I cut the flourish out using the FLOURISH THINLITS DIES
Both of these stamp sets and the dies are carry-overs from the previous Annual Catalog. Are you as happy about that as I am!!??
Embossing Folder: SOFTLY FALLING
I cut the circle out using the LAYERING CIRCLES FRAMELITS and added some Pearls. I also spritzed it with some shimmer by adding rubbing alcohol to some of the WINK OF STELLA in a SPRITZER BOTTLE. I wish you could see what I see. The photos just do not do these cards justice.
I popped up the top layer (5 1/4 x 4) with Stampin' Dimensionals.
TIP: I cut the flourish out of the THICK WHISPER WHITE Card Stock to give it more stability. The card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4) is also THICK WHISPER WHITE Card Stock, but the top layer is from the standard WHISPER WHITE CARD STOCK.
Why do I choose to use the different weights of card stock? I feel by using the Thick Whisper White gives the card a stronger, more stable foundation and the same goes for the flourish - it's just more stable. I also do not believe I need the thick card stock for the top layer which would just add more weight. 
I love having the choice of the 2 weights of the Whisper White and the Very Vanilla. You can check them out HERE.
