his card is such a simple but beautiful card. I cased the Idea from Kat Abbott, a fellow demonstrator who shared her idea with us at our monthly card swap. I made a few changes and I am now sharing it in my card classes as well.
Base Card in Glossy White
Cut 1 - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
- Using the using a flower stamp from the Flower Shop Stamps, I stamped the same flower in alternating colors, Bermuda Bay, Wild Wasabi, and Marina Mist on the right from of the card starting up in the right hand corner. I tried to stamp the flowers so that the petals were touching each other or they slightly overlapped each other. I stamped a total of six (6) flowers on the right hand side of the card, two (2) flowers in each color and tried to do an offset stamping of the flowers. See card photo.
- Once the flowers were stamped and the ink dried, I took the embossing buddy over the flowers. I then took the fine tip glue pen and placed glue in the center of each flower being careful not to get to much glue so that it would not run. I then added the Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of the flower, and then taped the excess glitter off.
- After I made sure the glitter set for a minute, I took a scrap piece of card stock and pressed down over the glittered center of the flower to ensure that the glitter was pressed into the glue.
Card Front Sentiment
I stamped the "Wishing You A Day of Love and Happy Memories" sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink. I centered the sentiment in the white space of the card, top to bottom, right to left.
Inside Card Sentiment and graphics
- I used another stamp for the inside of my card from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set also. The sentiment I used was "Followed by Many days & years of the same, I also stamped it in Bermuda Bay ink.
- I took the same flower stamp as used on the front of my card and put three (3) flowers, one in each ink color, on the bottom right hand corner of my card. You may place them where ever you want.
- I also stamped three (3) of the flowers in the three (3) inks on the back flap of my envelope.
