Story of Elegance

Happy Friday!  I decided to continue with more florals, so I kept with the same design as Tuesday, but used the Floral Essence stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  This is simple stamp set, but with it you can create some beautiful cards.  Although I didn’t use them for this card, this set coordinates with the  Perennial Flowers punch and the retired Leaf punch, making this stamp set even more versatile.

I also used products that you can earn for FREE on this card.  First is the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper; FREE with a $50 purchase during SaleABration.  (See below for information on SaleABration.)  The other product I used is the Punch Party stamp set.  This stamp set is FREE when you host a party with $300 or more in sales before tax and shipping.

As always, my hope is that today’s card will inspire you to order a few items and create your own special kindness to share.  You’ll be glad you did!

Here’s the card I made.

A Closer Look

Following are the steps I used to create this card:

1. Cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Basic Gray card stock and adhere to a card base made with Thick Basic Black card stock.

2. Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper.

3. Stamp three flowers in Versa Mark and heat emboss using White Embossing Powder.

4.  Use Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the leaves and wisps between the embossed flowers

5.  Create the sentiment panel.  Use the Layering Oval dies to create the base of the sentiment panel.  Use the Double Oval punch to punch the scalloped oval with Oh So Ombre DSP and Basic White for the smallest oval.   Use the sentiment from the Punch Party stamp set in Basic Gray ink.  Assemble and adhere to the card with Dimensionals.

6.  Add Basic Pearls.
