Thinking of Magnolias

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to Day Three of the JustRite Papercraft March Release!  Today's set is a beautiful, elegant set called Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven.

Of course, like our other sets this month, it comes with a matching Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven Digital Cut File SVG!  This cut file is only .50c as it is only the Magnolia flower, the frame is designed to match the Vintage Labels Seven dies manufactured by Spellbinders.  This set comes with an EXACT and OFFSET file.  I've used the exact file today - so it looks like it's been fussy cut very closely.  The Offset file will leave a white edge around your image.
NOTE: the best way to use the EXACT setting when stamping, is to put the stamp on your clear block, ink it up and then place the paper cut out on the top of the stamp and press the back all over.  It is easier to line it up this way rather than the traditional stamping method - trust me!

Unlike the last two days where bright colours have dominated, today I've used a soft, subtle colour palette to suit the occasion.  I've used a base of Very Vanilla and layered with soft green bazzill and more vanilla cut with Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight die.  Next I have more soft green, cut with Opulent Ovals.  I've stamped the frame from Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven in Memento Bamboo Leaves and the lightly coloured it with Copic G40.  I've used the Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven Digital Cut File to cut a piece of X-press It Blending Card (I've used the Textured Cardstock setting to cut it) and then used the technique above to stamp the magnolia image onto the cut out.  I've coloured it with Copics (G40, G82, G85, RV000, RV52, RV55, E51, E23) and then popped it up on Foam Tape.  I've stamped the sentiment in Black Stazon onto Vellum and attached it as shown.

I've also decorated the inside by stamping the magnolia in Memento Desert Sand and another of the sentiments in Tuxedo Black.
