Hi Stampin' Friends
The stunning Blooming with Kindness six-piece stamp set gives you plenty of options for sending your best regards. Includes expressions of support, gratitude, and even birthday wishes. Or use the floral image as a breathtaking focal point for your next scrapbook page!
This card is for my cousin whose birthday is in April – I am way ahead of the game in this case! Usually I'm making them at the last minute (LOL).
I colored in the flower image using Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Markers. I then lightly spritzed it with water to give it a soft look. If you look closely you can see where it's darker in some places and lightly in other places. That's from the spritizing.
The background was embossed using the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog and it's still available. The pattern paper is the First Edition Specialty Design Series Paper and which was punched on the left edge of the DSP with the Eyelet Border Punch (retired). The gorgeous, gorgeous lace is from the Artisan Embellishments Kit from the Spring Catalog. Did I say it was gorgeous?
I recently learned that it's easier to attach the lace if you use Sticky Strip. I was using Tombo Multi-purpose Glue and it would go all over the place (too messy) though I do use it to adhere the card stock together. But the Sticky Strip is so much better for the lace!
If you need any supplies to make this card, please visit my Stampin' Store for 24/7 service. Or you can send me your wish list and I'll be more than happy to place the order for you.
Thanks for Stopping by today!
