One Layer Birthday Flowers
This is my second post for today but I couldn't resist sharing this little flower card with you already! If you missed my Inkspirational DT card from this morning, a fun CAS card for all Spring Chickens... Click here.
This card follows the latest sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping and I love it, I'm sure I'll use it again. I made the card One Layer Simplicity Challenge in mind -restock your shelves. I forget birthdays easily so it's good to have some of those cards ready... "Onnittelut" is Finnish for "Congratulations". I'd also like to enter the Anything Goes Challenge at Keep it simple.
I started making this card by masking the edges with washi tape -very handy by the way- and then stamped the flowers. It's not a flower stamp but a graphic stamp that looks like a set of leaves from a new STAMPlorations set called Retro Mod Shapes: this stamp set is coming out very soon but you can already see how it looks like from the front page of STAMPlorations Shop. If you have difficulties figuring out how to form the flower, just leave a comment and I'll demonstrate with photos but it's very easy, just start stamping and you'll surely get the hang of it! After stamping I removed the washi tapes, drew a border with white gel pen and added pearls for my embellishments. This was a very fun card to make, I'm sure I'll make more of similar cards for my stash! Have a very nice weekend everyone and thanks for popping by.

I adore that crisp, clean white line...it's so perfectly executed and that takes a very steady hand to pull off successfully! I also love the colors of kraft, white, and pink. The whole thing is just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
