I've been taking an Spring Gelatos Workshop with Jeri Parks and have been so excited to show you this card. Although we only created this one card for the entire class, the short study was worth it. I've not worked with Gelatos before, although I had a set waiting to be explored. Fortunately, it was the same set that Ms. Parks used for our card!
I stamped the Dictionary image from SU! onto white cardstock. Using my fingers, I spread yellow and red Gelatos throughout the page to color. Then, with a MS punch, I stamped two rows of delicate edging that I placed onto the Dictionary page with a row of lace ribbon down the center. The label was cut using Spellbinders Label Twenty after stamping in blue with a Just Rite Stamp called Kindness that matched the die. Again, I used Gelatos in red and yellow to color. After cutting a Spellbinders Layered Flowers piece, I layered it in the center of the label, then placed a ribbon and sentiment on top of that.
If this sounds like a lot, it was, but it was worth it in my opinion. I would've never thought to do all this for one card, so I'm glad I learned how to do it in class. This is one of those cards that keeps coming back to me as one of my favorites, and I hope to continue to play with all the new supplies it took to get it together. I hope you like it, too.
Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
