The stamp set I’ve used in this card is from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue, which ends on 29th February, and is called Friendship Blooms.
The colour combination I’ve used is from the Colour Coach and I’ve used a SCS Sketch Challenge for the layout of the card.
I started with a Chocolate Chip A5 card. Next step was to run some Almost Amethyst through my Cuttlebug which was then mounted to the Chocolate Chip Card.
Using So Saffron cardstock and the Tag Punch, I’ve create an elongated tag which I have stamped the verse onto using Chocolate Chip Ink and then mounted onto the main card as shown.
Now for the main image. I started with my Whisper White Cardstock, Rose Red inkpad and Flower stamp and stamped onto the cardstock. I have then stamped the same image onto a Post-It Note and cut out to create a mask for the next step. I’ve positioned the mask over the original stamped image and then using Chocolate Chip ink and the flower swirl stamp, stamped randomly over the flower image so when you remove the mask the swirls look like they are underneath in some areas. This is then mounted onto some Chocolate Chip Cardstock. For the centre of the flower I have stamped the flower image using So Saffron ink onto some scrap Whisper White and cut out the centre flower. I then used some Rose Red cardstock and the 1/4″ circle punch to punch the centre for the flower. I’ve adhered the Rose Red circle punch to the So Saffron flower using a glue dot and then mounted over flower image using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ve added a piece of Hodgepodge and tied some co-ordinating ribbons to it. This whole piece was then mounted to main card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the last step I have added some Crystal Effects to the Rose Red flower centre.
