Vase Card made with Edgelit Dies

Vase Card made with Stampin'UP! Edgelit Dies
This vase card is made using the Edgelit dies. Can you see the shape of the edgelit on the vase?  If not keep reading. I'll explain how we did it.

First a word about the flowers - these colors are really stunning together.  Its a combination of Wisteria Wonder (the light purple), Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant (the dark purple). Stampin'UP!'s unique matched color collections was the main feature that first attracted me to this company.  I love how the colors are carefully chosen so the combinations always look great together.

The flower shapes were cut with the new Floral Framelits.  I love being able to cut different size shapes of flowers and layer them. I used the same dies to decorate this bag. The little yellow flower centers were just punched with a 3/4" circle punch. 

Now to explain how the Edgelit Dies make the vase. The edgelit dies are intended to make pretty edges on a card - like this one. What I did was use the edgelit twice, once on each side to cut the vase.  And here's a handy trick, use a Post-a-Note to hold the edgelit in place so it doesn't slide while you role it through the diecut machine. I also laid the paper on a piece of grid paper to ensure the edgelit was in the same position on each side. To give the vase a little texture we dry embossed using the Fancy Fan embossing folder.

Would you like to make this type of project? We made this card at the August Big Shot Class.  I love teaching the classes at my house. I have such a great group of stampers who come to these events. If you are local you should join us - you'd meet some wonderful people. Your next opportunity to take a class with me is this coming Sunday afternoon or Monday evening for the September Stamp-a-Stack. Click Here to Register

Happy Stamping and I hope to see you at an event soon
