Do you love the vintage curvy look? How about creating handmade flowers? What about techniques? Are you a technique junky? If you’ve answered yes to all or any of these questions, I think you will enjoy today’s vintage quite curvy birthday card.
My Mom will be 87 years young next month. I’ll be giving her this card for that special day. I hope she will enjoy the soft colors, the serene feeling, all the texture and interest. But, most of all that I love her and created it for her. Stampin’ Up! will release the Quite Curvy Bundle, November 3, 2020. Because I used one of the dies, I was able to create those lovely detailed curves. Here’s a sneak peek at the bundle.
The bundle, #156228, includes a 12-piece photopolymer stamp set and 10-piece die set. When the bundle goes live, you can also decide if you would like the entire Quite Curvy Variety Bundle, #158396. By ordering that one, you will also receive the Curvy Christmas stamp set and the Classic Christmas DSP. Now that you have all the scoop on the bundles, let’s get back to today’s card.
One of my favorite things to do is to create my own handmade flowers. Can you believe it? I’ve used the Poinsettia Dies to create both the large and all the small flowers. I’ve cut them from Whisper White card stock, but also added some inking and flower shaping to achieve the vintage look.
Did you notice the sparkly background? I really wanted to enhance the vintage curvy look by adding some lucious texture. It’s easy! Break out your Shimmery White Embossing Paste, Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and your palette knife. You’ll be “buttering up” your card stock and wondering why you waited so long to have this much fun.
Peeking through this vintage curvy detail, did you spy that beautiful designer series paper? Guess what? It’s on sale until October 31st. There are 14 other packages on sale as well. Check out all the details here.
For my vintage curvy birthday card, I wanted to be sure to leave enough room to write a message to Mom. Because I used that fabulous curvy leaf stamp, I was able to nestle my sentiment up close, enhancing them both! Sit back, relax, I hope you will take a few minutes to enjoy my video tutorial. In this free class, I’ll highlight the flower shaping, tricks on using the curvy dies and of course that glorious sparkly background.
