I’m sorry I missed posting my blog this morning but life got in the way and I forgot what day it was! Earlier today I made a Welcome card for a new family who moved into the house over the road. The previous day I had been working with the Wonderful World Stamp Set and the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper. These two stunning products are available as a level two Sale-a-bration gift until 3st August 2022, while stocks last!
On last week’s video no. 648: 3 Cards in 1 Card I showed how to colour the three floral images in the stamp set using Stampin’ Write Markers. I used the same technique to create the image for the front of today’s card and also the image I stamped on the inside of the card. The flowerheads are in Blackberry Bliss and the stems and leaves are in Pear Pizzazz.
The flower image was die-cut with the largest circle die in the Beautiful Shapes Dies which embosses a decoration around the outer circle. I adhered the image onto a Blackberry Bliss CS circle I had die-cut using the no. 7 straight cut die from the Layering Circle dies. For the sentiment I used WELCOME from the Garden Birdhouse Stamp Set and stamped it onto a scrap of Basic White CS using Blackberry Bliss Ink.
After I die-cut the sentiment using the no. 1 Deckled Rectangle Die, I adhered it to a piece of Blackberry Bliss CS which measured 1⅛” x 2½”. I used the regular size C6/A2 card (measurements below my signature) and embossed the Basic White Cardstock (CS) top layer using the beautiful Gingham Embossing Folder. Next I adhered it to a middle Blackberry Bliss CS layer and added it to the front of my card. Then I adhered the image and the sentiment in position using Dimensionals.
To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same flower image in the bottom right-hand corner of the Basic White CS top layer. After I had adhered this layer to a middle layer of Blackberry Bliss CS layer, I adhered them both inside the card. I decorated the front of the card by adding 3 Brass Brushed Butterflies plus a small bow I made using a piece of retired Blackberry Bliss Ribbon.
A very quick and easy card to make with a great result! Happy crafting!
