Spring Catalog Sample card


     How would you like to be able to create this card and use just one strip of the Delicate Details Lace trim?  That is exactly what I did and you can do it also by following these simple directions.

1.  Place the trim at the bottom of a piece of Glossy Card stock being careful not to press too hard.

2.  Using a sponge dauber gently apply a dark color to the trim.

3.  Carefully lift the trim off the card stock and reapply it about 1/4 of an inch higher.  Continue to move the trim.  Change colors to a lighter shade every 2-3 rows.

    Where did I come up with such a great idea?  At the StampinUp Leadership conference recently held in Orlando. There was an area where staff showed us how to use some of the new supplies in the Spring catalog.  I loved this technique and changed up the sample card to reflect my style ( and the supplies that I had on hand.)

   So, do you think you can duplicate this design?  Try it and let me know what you come up with.
