The image on this card is Stampin’ Up!’s Pretty Petals stamp – it’s a large background stamp that can be the focus of a card without too much difficulty, I think. The card was inspired by a fellow demonstrator (but I can’t give full credit since I can’t actually find the original right now….again, shocking – NOT). Anyway – glossy white cardstock is brayered with two colours – in this case, soft sky & certainly celery, and the image is stamped in Basic Black onto this, then cut into 3 pieces. In this case, I cut the pieces evenly, but they could be cut in different widths and at different angles to give the card a different look. As long as you keep the pieces in the right order! The images were mounted onto basic black and the card is made from basic grey cardstock. I made a small notch at the card fold with my 3/4" circle punch to slip the rose grosgrain ribbon through to tie in the front, just to add a little extra colour & texture.
OK back to work! I’m coming up with some more ideas for my May class & workshops! (Don’t forget to RSVP if you want to attend my May class – date of class if Weds May 7th, but cut off for registration is May 5th).
