Happy Saturday! There is something about a mild spring-like Saturday in late winter that is so uplifting and energizing. Although I did use some of that energy on a few household chores, the uplift came from creating this card for the Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch challenge.
I have been really loving the Awesomely Artistic stamp set lately. I’m not sure what took me so long to give this set a work out but I can see so many possibilities…
I recently used the flowers on another card here. This time however, I decided to color and snip them to create a more dimensional image. I used markers to color the flowers and leaves and then used a little Dazzling Details in the center. The dragonfly was stamped on Vellum in Versa-Mark and heat embossed using Iridescent embossing powder.
The embossing folder I used is from another company, but I thought it was the perfect background for this card. The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set and the frame around it is also from Awesomely Artistic and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder. I should mention that added two candy dots in the same color to the frame. The frame is easily cut using a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. I added Wisteria Wonder 1/2″ seam binding behind the flowers.
The inside sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set. The font in this set is so feminine and pretty.
I did something a little different to the envelope flap. It is embossed with the same folder I used on the card and then stamped the front to match the inside of the card. I do like how everything coordinates.
I hope you enjoyed this project and perhaps it gave you a little “spring” lift as it did for me. Please stop by again soon.
