1,2,3 Create Kit- Gabrielle

Hello Friends,

  I wish you all  Easter Blessings on  this day.  I have spent the last three days of the holy tridium with my family and church.  This such a special week.  It has been a solem and yet joyful time.  I hope that you will share in the joy!


  Today I am featuring a card I made using the newest 1,2,3 Create kit-Gabrielle.  This kit is filled with lovely papers and emblishments that I want to take center focus.  Almost every item on the card came from the kit.  Papers, ribbon, rhinestone and pearls.  Since the focus was on the kit items I wanted to keep the stamping to a minimum. I used a sentinment from Flourishes Sweet Violets set.  The only other items used to create the card were Spellbinder dies-Grand Lace and Fancy Tags Three.

For the side detail I cut vellum from the Grand lace die and used both the positive and negative cuts, placing them along side each other, then I layered a strip of the Prima dot paper from the kit and enhanced with the pearls and rhinestones from the kit.  I also used a long strip of Kaiser pearls down the length of the card.

 The Fancy Tag Three was also cut from vellum stamped with black Memento ink, then on to emblishments of more pearls and rhinestones.  The card size is 5 1/2″x 7″.

There are just a few of these lovely kits left in the store so if it tickles your fancy go HERE

Here are a list of designers that are also focusing the kit today, hop on over to their sites for more inspiration.
