Happy Monday!!! Today I’m going to show you that you can make your own designer paper just my stamping all over!!! It’s a lot of fun to mix and match the colors! Plus you all know I love FLOWERS!
This is one of those quick cards that you can create in now time. It also is perfect for any occasion so you can have fun with it and make a few while you are at it. Perhaps, just leave the greeting portion blank so you can stamp the necessary greeting when you need to!
I started with a Tangerine Tango card base! Next I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and die cut the scallops with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. If you have trouble with the die moving on your before running it through the Big Shot, simply add a little Post It Note (or Post It Note Tape) like I did in the photo below! I die cut multiples and it held up each time without needing to add more!
Now that we have that decorative bottom, it’s time to stamp the top. I used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set for the greeting and flowers. Be sure to leave space for the greeting in the lower right corner. You can stamp it first or at the end….or later if you make a lot ahead of time! For the flowers, I used Tangerine Tango, Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive. Start with the largest flower first so you have plenty of room and then just fill in. Be sure to fall off the edges of the cardstock so it looks like the pattern continues. I tied some Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon around at the bottom of the stamped flowers! This gives a nice breaking point for your greeting to stand out. The greeting was stamped in Basic Black and then I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots for texture.
I just love flowers and bright colors! They make me so happy! I hope this card makes you happy as well and you have a wonderful day!
