Another Single Layer Card

Hi Stampers!
Here is a jewel, single layer card designed by Linda Pugh. She used several techniques to achieve this beautiful card. (remember, you can click on the photo to view it larger)  She started by cutting her card stock in half lengthwise (4-1/4 x 11) Scored at 4-1/4" and then used the new framelit in a unique way. She put the end of the card stock in the Big Shot that she wanted to be the flap, laid the framelit close to the end of the cs and then, in order not to cut the entire framelit, only put the top cutting plate on part way...lining it up with where she wanted the score line to be to enable the flap to close the card. Wow...I hope that makes sense! If not, give me a shout and I will try to explain it better. 

Next she clear embossed the flowers from Elements of Style onto the card and finally, used the felt technique to stamp the colorful bird on the inside of the card. To do the felt technique, you need a piece of felt fabric. First thing to do is ink up your stamp with markers in the desired manner. Then, stamp the image onto the white felt and BEFORE picking up the stamp, draw a line around the block so you know exactly where you put it to begin with. Then, using re-inkers, add drops of ink to the felt image and make your own little stamp pad just for this stamp. It is a good idea to put this felt into a plastic our wood stamp containers, to prevent a total mess! 

Hope you enjoy the card today.

Happy Stampin'!
