Something I haven’t been too good at doing recently, for one reason or another. But at least this bright cheery card should help put a smile on your faces!
I started with a piece of Raspberry Fizz cardstock and randomly stamped various blooms from Beautiful Blooms II using Dark Chocolate ink. I didn’t want the Dark Chocolate to stand out too much so I tapped my Raspberry Fizz inkpad over the top afterwards to tone it down.
I then paired the panel with a smaller piece of Orange Zest cardstock that I had left over from a previous card. I stamped one of the designs from Damask Designs on it using Lemon Tart ink. I added a trio of Dark Chocolate buttons to embellish.
I wanted to embellish over the join so it seemed like a perfect opportunity to break out my Dark Chocolate felt and Ric Rac die!! Boy do I love both of these products! I cut a strip of the felt and adhered with tiny strips of Scor Tape on the reverse. Took a bit of time but at least I know it’ll hold!
I adhered the panel to a Rustic White card base using Pinflair Glue Gel. I then prepared the sentiment panel, stamping the sentiment from Say It With Style onto Raspberry Fizz cardstock using True Black ink. I adhered to a slightly larger Rustic White mat and adhered to the panel using plenty of Pinflair for height. Finally I stamped one of the single blooms from Background Basics: Petal Power onto Rustic White cardstock using Orange Zest ink, cut out and adhered with more Pinflair.
I’m really going to try and make an effort to get back on top of my blogging, I have a backlog of about 23 cards still waiting to go up!! In the meantime I would love your comments on this card, you know your kind words really make my day, and make me smile. :o)
