Today I am sharing a card I made to go along with the gift I showed you yesterday that was for a friend and coworker.
I had to use my favorite stamp set, Stampin Up Good Thoughts, I have said before I love this flower and I am sure you will be seeing it more and more. Hope you don't mind!
I stamped the image onto some Naturals card stock and then again on some scrap naturals, I colored using Melon Mambo and Garden Green inks, I fussy cut out the top of the flower and set it aside.
I used the retired French Foliage stamp set to 'grunge" up my BG around my flower a bit. I used Crumb Cake ink for that and stamped off once before stamping around the flower. I didn't worry to much about getting it on my flower as I knew I would be adding the blossom piece of the flower over the top of the bottom image.
The sentiment on here comes from the Wild about Flowers stamp set. I stamped it twice onto some scrap paper and used my Label Bracket punch. I trimmed off the bottom portion of the punched piece to make it straight across the bottom. I sponged the edges with Crumb cake and added a staple on each side and stacked the two together with some dimensionals. No need to stamp the sentiment twice as I did cos the bottom doesn't show but I was not thinking about that at the time, I just knew I wanted to stack the sentiment to make it stand out a bit more.
The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and then a layer of the Naturals card stock. The DSP is from the Neutrals pack/ The black striped piece comes from the Neutrals pack as well.
We had a little going away party for Lynn at a local restaurant on Sunday and I gave her the framed piece, a small matching Faith pin and this card. She seemed to like them very much and that made me happy.
Thanks for stopping by today!
