Spirelli Card

In response to the challenge on Crafting by Design blog, this is the card I made showcasing a spirelli embellishment. It's always fun to just create from your imagination with  just a little inspiration. I hope that you too will soon create one.

To recreate this card the card base folded measures 5" x 7" using Daisy White cardstock. Next, is the Lagoon Blue BT background at 4.5" x 6.5".  The spirelli was cut using the 2" scalloped punch out of Dotty For You paper. Using a glue dot to secure the one end of the Baker's Twine I criss-crossed the twine ensuring that all groves were covered. Again using another glue dot I secure the last piece of twine. 

Creating the sentiment was a snap. First of all the stamped images rest on a Daisy White cardstock that measures at 3"x 5".  I stamped the two fun bird characters from the stamp, Easter Wishes, in black ink and colored in using copic markers. The sentiment was stamped in Lagoon ink, also found in the same stamp set. A second stamp set was used, A Garden, to create the folliage using the  Olive ink pad. I stamped the image criss-crossing in the first and second generation.

First generation stamping means that I inked the stamped image only one. Meanwhile the second generation stamping means that after stamping the image once I used the same stamp without reinking it to stamp a second image.

Now for the finishing touches..washi tape. Just cut two piece of the tape in an angle and tape down at the bottom of the Daisy White cardstock with sentiment and images. Adhere the spirelli embellishment with glue dots.

To recreate this card I used the following products:
  • CTMH Dotty for You (BT) paper packet, discontinued paper
  • CTMH Neutral Baker's Twine (Z1701)
  • CTMH Washi Tape (Z1817)
  • CTMH Black Ink Pad (Z2105)
  • CTMH Olive Ink Pad (Z2137)
  • CTMH Daisy Cardstock (1385)
  • CTMH Whisper Cardstock (X5929)
  • Glue Dots, and Tombo Adhesive
  • CTMH Stamp A Garden (A1119), for the folliage
  • CTMH Stamp Easter Wishes (B1422), for sentiments and characters
  • CTMH 2 inch scalloped punch (Z1392)
Happy Crafting!
