I am in serious need of several birthday cards and just got the Avant Garden stamp set last week (along with my already beloved layering Circle Framelits) and decided to make a couple of girly cards. I completely overlooked and dismissed this stamp set from the SaleAbration catalog because I just didn’t care for it on first glance. I should have known better though, as soon as other talented demos and customers started posting samples, I just had to have it. I don’t like the line drawn flower bouquet, but this watercolor flower is to die for!
This card is all country! Kraft cardstock base and used colors of soft sky, night of navy, whisper white craft and old olive. The background flowers are first stamped with white craft. I used a really juicy ink pad and let dry completely before overstamping with the soft sky. The main flower is stamped on the circle and a second layer stamped on scrap paper and fussy cut, then popped up with dimensionals. I also used linen thread and the burlap ribbon.
This card is note card sized, I used second generation stamping in melon mambo for the all flowers and stamped the stamens full strength. Colors used are whisper white, melon mambo and old olive!
I hope you enjoyed these quick, simple birthday cards and if you would like to order any of the supplies, click the shop now button in the menu up top to go straight to my online store. The Avant Garden stamp can be yours free with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping). Hoping you have a blessed day!!
