How to Make a Hey Girlfriend Fussy Cut Card – Sneak Peek! This stamp set getting into my collection was a total surprise to me. If you had told me that this would be one of the very first sets I bought I would have thought you were mad. There is nothing about it that has my name anywhere near it, yet I LOVE IT! This is the first of a few cards I have planned using this set, so keep your eyes peeled for a few more in the coming days.
The sentiments in this set are perfect for both supporting your friends, but also to thank them for being there for you too. And dare I suggest that they are not just for use with your girlfriends. And for the cat lovers, like me, amongst you, there is a cat as well as a dog, so we have you covered!
I chose to colour the three girls with my Stampin’ Blends. I know I have used quite a lot, but there is no point in having them and then not using them. Of course you can change the colours to suit your style. You can also colour the individuals to reflect your friends and relatives. Thinking back to my childhood, you can also make outfits from paper, just by stamping on your favourite patterned paper, fussy cutting the outfit and then sticking it on to the figure.
I chose to use the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue (remember that?) and then add a Vellum Layer that has been sized to fit the second largest of the Stitched With Whimsy Dies. Please note that the Stitched With Whimsy DO NOT cut out the shape, they just add the fantastic stitching. The sentiment has been stamped on Whisper White and then punched with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, also from the Annual Catalogue, layered on Melon Mambo.
The finished card is perfect for any Girlfriends you may have and I am sure it would be most welcome by any of them. If you want to add the Stamp Set to your Shopping List, it is #154516 and is just £20. The Stitched with Whimsy Dies are #155314 and are only £27 for 6 dies in all sorts of sizes.
