Did you ever think of combining a masculine background with a frilly flower?

By | March 24, 2014

The description for the Hardwood Background Stamp reads:  “The Hardwood Background Stamp creates a realistic wood background for cards, scrapbook pages, and more!”  And the description for the Everything Eleanor reads:  “Delicate floral embellishments, frames, and flourishes–the perfect mix for your projects with vintage flair”.   You think you could not mix the two together, but you can!

The sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and was stamped with Primrose Petals Classic Ink on Naturals White Card Stock.  The flowers were stamped with Primrose Petals Classic Ink and cut out using our Paper Snips.  I love our Paper Snips – cutting flowers is a breeze – they are so sharp they cut into the tiniest areas.

A row of pearls under the sentiment finished off the card.  The base card is Primrose Petals Card stock and the corners were punched out using our 3/16″ Corner Punch to give the card a softer look.

So what do you think – do you like the combination?
