Hi everyone! How have you been?
I’ve been busy in the craft room but haven’t been blogging. I ran out of words so I decided to take a short break from blogging… let the word pool fill back up. ;)
The card I’m sharing today was my third attempt at a simpler card. The first one I made… not so much. The second one wasn’t even in the ballpark of simple – although I did leave off sewing on it. LOL.
On to today’s card – I used two TSG stamp sets: Kindred Spirits and Sentimental. I stamped the solid portion of the flower in Colobox Fluid Chalk Ink and then stamped the outline image over top in Memento Rich Cocoa. I trimmed the flower, added a chocolate pearl to the center and affixed a heart stick pin to the back using a couple dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Rich Cocoa on Marina Mist cardstock and punched out with a wide oval punch.
For the card base I folded a 3.5” x 11” piece of Naturals White cardstock in half for a 3.5” x 5.5” sized card. I cut 3.25” x 5.25” rectangle of Naturals White cardstock and embossed with a QuicKutz embossing folder. I layered it on a 3 3/8” x 5 3/8” rectangle of Early Espresso cardstock and added a strip of designer paper along the bottom and a piece of ribbon were the two pieces overlap. To finish I attached all of the pieces together using foam dimensionals and added Bisque Liquid Pearls to the oval.
Turned out to be a quick card to make… so quick that I made three more of them and it only took an hour. Easy peasy once you have a layout you like! :)
