This card features the Blossoms in Blooms Bundle simply stamped with a die overlay. I love a simple card that looks difficult. Don’t you? This is a Distinktive Stamp Set which has the color variations build in for depth and intensity. You can find a list of Distinktive Stamps on page 114 of the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.
The Paper Cuts
- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ card base and the floral outline die cut.
- Whisper White Cardstock: two 5 1/4″ x 4″ panels for the front and inside, and a 1/2″ x 3″ scrap for the sentiment.
I chose Cherry Cobbler for this card because the recipient is a University of Alabama Grad (as I am) and because it reminded me of the colors in the gorgeous mum my sister gave me for my birthday last week. Customization is just one of the benefits of creating your own cards!
- Stamp the large floral image on the front panel in Cherry Cobbler ink. I like to use my Stamparatus for large stamps like this. It ensures that I can realign it if there is a spot that I don’t apply enough pressure to. Stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink. Hit your envelope flap while your at it to save time 😉
- Stamp the floral centers with Crushed Curry ink and use a Sponge Dauber to add additional color if desired. Don’t forget the envelope flap!
- With Mossy Meadow ink stamp “Happy Birthday” on the scrap of Whisper White and flag the front end with the Banner Triple Punch. Apply three Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
- The inside greeting is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I chose it because it has print (as well as the cursive) to match the greeting in the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment.
- Use Paper Snips to trim the leaf and small flower outlines from the large floral outline die cut. Save the leaf sprigs. Lay the pieces upside down on the Silicone Craft Sheet, squeeze a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the corner and use 1/8 of a Stampin’ Sponge to apply the glue to the delicate die. (I keep mine in a small plastic container with a binder clip as a handle). Poition the floral outline over the stamped image and press into place. Apply the leaf sprigs on the inside panel.
- Add the strip with the dimensionals and 3 Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
