Here's my project using the new product.
I stepped out of my comfort zone a little this time and decided to try something new, a "screen" card. Something I have never tried before I saw this recently on the net and had to give it a go. I saw it with an oriental theme and just adapted it to suit Occasions products. I had no instructions and completely made it up as I went. For my first try, I'm happy with the way it came out. The bonus is, it's easy to fold and put in an envelope. To keep it closed and secure I would wrap in co-ordinating ribbon.
I would like to send out a huge thank you to the very thoughtful and generous Crazy Crafter Angela Lorenz who was so kind to let me borrow her items to be able to participate in the project, as I haven't put in my Occasions order yet! Don't worry it will be very soon.
Originally I embossed the screen base with the Stripes Embossing Folder. However when it came time to adorn it with stamped images, I realised I had to do stamp the images on a flat surface, so I added panels of crumb cake card stock over the top. I used cotton white Staz On ink to stamp the image and my favourite punch, Elegant Butterfly to adorn the screen in several places .
The beauty with this card is that you can chose to leave a panel blank to write your sentiment or you get dress them all up and write your personal sentiment or message on the back.
I had fun making this one, even though it took me 3.5 hrs! and somewhat most of it in the dark by torch light, ah what a night it was. An unusual night was had in my craft room but I am happy with the outcome. I can see me making more of these, in different themes, and perfecting the measurements and technique.
I hope you enjoyed my project and are inspired to use the new Occasions products. As per usual my wish list is huge.
