Sometimes I just wing it and sometimes I measure and sometimes I have fun little tips like this one!!! Today, I’m sharing how to get your spacing right on stamped flowers so you can fit a greeting in the middle!!!
The Bloom & Grow Stamp Set makes my heart happy!! I just love all the flower combinations and how they can be stamped so beautifully!
I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) to stamp the flowers from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set. These were stamped in Basic Gray because I like that softer look for coloring rather than the bold black look.
So now for the hot topic: How To Get Your Spacing Right?!?! I simply placed the greeting strip (Highland Heather measuring 4-1/4″ x 1″) to the side of the white cardstock and in the middle where I wanted it to be placed. Then I stamped the top flowers making sure to be at the top of that greeting strip. Ink it up again, flip it over, and stamp the bottom flowers near the bottom of that greeting strip. By placing the guide on the side, it helps get that perfect spacing where they aren’t too far apart or too close together! Simple and fabulous!
Here are the colors of Stampin’ Blends that I used for these flowers. I like to take a photo with my phone right after I am done so I know which colors were used. Then if I want to recreate it exactly, I don’t have to guess!!!
Once I finished coloring, I added this layer to the card base. Then I stamped the greeting from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink. This piece was then attached to the center of the card. For a little bit of texture, I added a Baker’s Twine bow with a Mini Glue Dot and some Basic Sequins.
For the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped some greenery on the corners from the Bloom & Grow Stamp Set. Perfect coordination to complete the card! Here are some more color options for this amazing card!
