Needlepoint Elements Subtles Floral Thank You Card

by Joanne James25. April 2019 20:50

I had a class today featuring the Needlepoint Nook Suite so have been making lots of cards featuring these products in the last week or so as everything has been out on my desk. Today's card is a clean-and-simple one using the current sketch over at SUO Challenges and the colour challenge over at Less Is More:

My card features two of the dies from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits used in an unconventional way - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

A Floral Trio - When putting together one of my class cards, it occurred to me that the three leaf sprig and the three-looped piece when used together could make a sweet little flower. I had a little play and eventually decided to snip away my central green leaf before adding my pale pink flower petals, in which I left the diecut pieces in place. I created three of these flowers and added to my panel, with a little stitched edge detailing. I love it when I discover another use for a die or punch - so much versatility!

Super Subtles - I recently shared a colour family poll over on my Facebook page where I asked my followers to vote for their favourite of the Stampin' Up! colour families. I'm a Brights girl myself, however Subtles won with an overwhelming majority so for everyone who voted - this card is for you! I chose to feature Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink on my card, possibly two of the most subtle colours in my collection and must admit the soft colours and calming green make this a favoured colour combination of mine. 

Simple Thanks - I added a simple tone-on-tone stamped sentiment to the front of my card and used my Stamparatus so that I could get ink good coverage and a strong stamped image. I just love this gadget!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

This is so clever! I'd never have picked that you're using Needlepoint Nook! Partly it's the very subtle colour choice but really it's the creative way you've used the bits and bobs. Lovely!
