When my husband saw today’s card, he said he could smell oranges! The fruit looks that real, doesn’t it? The Citrus Bundle with its Hybrid Embossing Folder is unique, and will be so much fun to use. It’s on page 49 in the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, and will be available January 5, 2023.
I’ll start my explanation with the card base, which is Mossy Meadow Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. It was layered with Old Olive Cardstock, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die, and embossed with the Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder.
Next, I used the largest Sweet Citrus stamp to stamp Pumpkin Pie Ink on So Saffron Cardstock. After stamping the outline, I stamped the inside of the oranges with Daffodil Delight Ink. The stamp is in one piece, and has a die in one piece, but cuts out four separate pieces.
The leaves were stamped in Old Olive Ink on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, cut with their dies, and attached with glue and Dimensionals.
After stamping the fruit, I matched two pieces of fruit to the Embossing Folder, and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. That’s what gives the fruit the realistic look. Don’t you love it?
The Sweet Citrus stamp set has appropriate sentiments, and I stamped ” Have a zesty birthday!” in Evening Evergreen Ink. After fussy cutting the sentiment, I attached half with glue, and half with Dimensionals.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
