I’m back with something a little different for you this week. I decided to jump off the Christmas train for a minute and make an all occasion card for you. I love how elegant this turned out, but it still has that cute and whimsical feel to it.
To start my card, I grabbed one of my favorite background stamps from My Favorite Things. It’s called Wavy Coloring Book and the name is spot on. It’s adorable! I used Hero Arts ‘Soft Granite’ ink and stamped out the background on to white cardstock. Then, I trimmed down the cardstock to 4in x 3.75in.
I adhered my stamped panel to a white piece of cardstock (4.25×5.5) and layered a piece of vellum on top of it. I wrapped the vellum around the back of my card front so that I could use adhesive on the back without anything showing through on the front side. I got out my trusty Mini MISTI and stamped my greetings.
I used two stamp sets for my sentiments. I used the Essential Sentiments set from My Favorite things for, ‘I love you. I mean it.’ Then, I used ‘Ridiculously Happy’ from Honey Bee Stamps for the adorable sentiment at the bottom. Seriously, how cute is that?
I stamped out a beautiful butterfly from Altenew’s Dream Big set and added a healthy dose of Wink of Stella for that gorgeous shimmer and shine we all love. I used the coordinating dies and popped my die cut up on foam for some dimension. I added a few clear drops from Pretty Pink Posh and that finished my card!
I hope you love this card and it inspires you to create something!
Hugs and love to you all,
