Hello Beautiful Card

Hello everyone.  You will be happy to know my card today is NOT a punch art card – YAY!  It is just a very simple floral card without the feminine colors.

I die cut a Stitched Rectangle from Night of Navy cardstock.  To give this navy panel some depth, I stamped Wide Stripes with Night of Navy dye ink for a tone-on-tone look.

I then die cut a navy Stitched Oval Frame.  I used a Stitched Oval die slightly smaller than the oval frame to cut an opening in the middle of the stripe panel.  I also die cut the same oval from Kraft cardstock and inlaid it before stamping the sentiment from For You Flowers.  I had to use the MISTI to stamp the sentiment a few times to get a good impression on Kraft cardstock.

The Peony Bouquet flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock with the Summer Afternoon ink cube set.  There are actually 3 layering stamps plus an outline stamp for each of the images in the set (flowers and leaves), but I only used 2 layers with the outline. After I finished stamping, I die cut the flowers with the matching dies and added some clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.

I die cut a branch from Chocolate Chip cardstock before assembling the card together and mounting it all on a top-folding Kraft cardbase.

  2. Love those beautiful yellow roses against that deep blue! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy.

  3. I love the striking contrast of the dark blue background behind the pretty yellow flowers which have been beautifully inked and I love the light sparkle too. Your little branch lends a pleasant horizontal element to this fabulous card. We’re delighted you for decided to play along with The Saturdays’ Sketch this week. Thank you for joining us. Hugs, Lesley

  4. Love your color combination. It may have been a ‘simple’ card to put together but it certainly has lots of depth and detail.
