This week we had sad news about the loss of a friend’s family member. These times call for a simple card, so you can express your sympathy and support.
I put this card together using three stamp sets. The purpose is to show you how you can mix your stamps to come up with a unique card.
I started with Very Vanilla cardstock and embossed the front with the Painted Texture embossing folder.
I used the Painted Poppy for the flower and the saying on the outside of the card is from Color & Contour. I masked off the now in Here for you now. The inside saying is from Celebrating You. I used You’re on my mind and in my heart. There are some really nice sentiments in that set.
Instructions: Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″ and score at 4-1/4″ with your paper trimmer.
Emboss the front with the Painted Texture folder.
Take another piece of Very Vanilla and cut out the largest rectangle from the dies.
Stamp the flower in Gray Granite ink.
Color flower with light and dark Poppy Parade Blend markers. Color the leaves in light Old Olive.
Stamp the background stamp in Gray Granite ink and stamp off once then stamp on the card.
Stamp the saying from the Color & Contour stamps and don’t ink the now. Just the Here for you.
Attach to the card with dimensionals.
Stamp the saying ” You’re on my Mind and in my Heart from the Celebrating You stamp set in Gray Granite ink, inside the card.
