I’m here today to share a card I made using the ‘Lovely You‘ stamp set which carried over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. I love how this card turned out and can’t wait to try it with some other colours.
I’ve used a mixture of Inkpads & Stampin’ Write Markers in Soft Succulent, Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia & So Saffron, to colour & stamp the flower & leaf images from the stamp set onto Basic White cardstock before fussy cutting them out. I’ve have also used first and second generation stamping with the leaf images to give some tonal effect. I then added a piece of Basic White to the base card which was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.
Next, the sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Basic White using the lovely Fresh Freesia inkpad and then die cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I then glued the large flower and leaf images to the back side of the sentiment piece before adding Stampin’ Dimensionals and placing on the card. The smaller flowers where then added to fill in some space using Stampin’ Dimensionals. My final touch was to add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the So Saffron flowers and a ‘few’ extra around the card.
I’ve added a little bit of stamping to the inside of the card to finish it off and tie it all together.
Here are the measurements for my card.
- Base card – Basic White Thick A4 105mm x 297mm (score in half and fold). It is advisable to always score the Thick card before folding to give a nice crease.
- Basic White A4 – 144mm x 55mm (embossed)
- Basic White offcuts for sentiment & images.
- Basic White – Insert 144mm x 101mm
