This card is for the Create Along with Us challenge over at Papertrey Ink during their anniversary celebration. I loved Amy Sheffer's card she posted using the new Tulip Time stamp set and just had to make one myself. Using the frames from Tag Sale #10 as a background is a wonderful idea! By the way, I must have those new tulips. They are my favorite flower anyway, but the three-step layer design is so pretty. Love!
I stamped a Kraft card base with Background Basics: Text Style in VersaMark ink to create a soft background. I love how it looks! I guess I was channeling a vintage vibe during my crafting session yesterday. I added several white scalloped frames that I had cut using the Tag Sale #10 die.
After die cutting a few flowers from white cardstock, I stamped some cheerful blooms using Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, and Dark Chocolate ink using the matching Petite Pots stamps. For the stems, I inked up first with Spring Moss and then rolled the leaf edges in Ripe Avocado. I smile every time I look at these flowers! You'll see them in my next post too.
I adhered two flowers to my card and then added a narrow Dark Chocolate banner that I embossed with a happy birthday sentiment from Father Knows Best. Isn't it sweet? I really love this card! You can see other cards for the challenge here. Thanks to Amy for the inspiration!
