Especially For You

Shall we start how we mean to go on? I’m back and today’s post is going to be the first card I’ve made since 2012. I know it’s scary. I thought I best start small and work my way up to a larger more complex card.

For today’s card I want to use the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set, the following image shows all the stamps available. There such a good verity of sentiments and floral imagery. Not to mention the coordinating the Thinlits!

I started with a base of Smoky Slate card stock measuring at 6 inches by 3 inches folded to make a small 3x3 note card. Using the coordinating ink pad I stamped out the beautiful larger flower (as above). Easy so far right? I’m not going to make it difficult trust me. Then using the Pretty Lable Punch to cut out the piece of Whisper White card stock and snip off a bit from the right side. If your smarter than me and don’t want to waste any of your card stock, you can just position the punch just missing this end bit. 

To brighten up the card I though I’d introduce some So Saffron into the mix by stamping the silhouette flower twice. Now as you would have noticed this isn’t as bright as as you would expect. Don’t worry my ink pad has plenty of ink but what I did was stamp it onto some scrap paper prior to stamping onto the Whisper White. I love this effect and I think you’ll be seeing it a lot more! To finish the card off I choose the sentiment “Especially For You” which is also from Botanical Bliss.
