Crane of Fortune Bundle - My Favourite

crane of fortune bundle my favourite 1

 Believe it or not, I'm finally getting around to using my new products from the 2022 Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue! And the bundle that first caught my eye when I saw the new catalogue was the Crane of Fortune bundle from the Symbols of Fortune Suite. I'm not sure if it was the soothing neutral tones or the gingko leaves or the pops of gold and Calypso Coral, but this suite was my first choice in the catalogue.

To be honest, the images in the stamp set are a little harder to use in a versatile way but that Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous that I'm going to work hard to show you quite a few designs that you'll love. This is my first one:

  • On a Basic White Thick card base, I layered a beautiful piece of the Symbols of Fortune DSP in Smoky Slate, White and Gold. It's elegant, but subdued so works as a background.
  • I wrapped a piece of the Gold 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to the left side, securing underneath before adhering the DSP to the card base. This ribbon is a carry over product from the 2021 Jul/Dec Mini, but won't be available to order until the 2022 Jul/Dec Mini. The Soft Succulent 1/2" Satin Shimmer Ribbon would be a good alternative.
  • Using Basic White cardstock and the Mother of Pearl Specialty paper that is part of this suite, I die cut two of the Gingko Leaf borders using the Good Fortune Dies from the bundle. I backed the cardstock and specialty paper with adhesive sheets before die cutting so I could just peel & stick. The Mother of Pearl die cut is on top.
  • I stamped and die cut the crane and the shrub image in Memento ink and Calypso Coral respectively and added them to the card front along with the foliage die cut in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen cardstock as well. The crane is popped up on dimensionals.
  • The sentiment and the dragonflies, both from the Crane of Fortune stamp set are embossed in Gold and added to the card.
