This card is not my normal card. Can you guess why?
Just one layer. You know I love lots of layers on cards but this one didn’t need any more than the Very Vanilla card itself.
The Vintage Vogue stamp set I used just cried out for Very Vanilla cardstock and rich inks colours like Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. I also added some Pale Plum to contrast with the Rich Razzleberry. I cut out a few of the smaller flowers and added them to the card with stampin’ dimensionals for height. If you are doing detailed paper cutting, the paper snips make the job so much easier.
To finish, I added a knotted length of Very Vanilla satin ribbon and a Very Vanilla jumbo brad. As I didn’t want the brad prongs to show inside the card, I cut them off with scissors and placed a dimensional on the bottom of the brad to hold it in place.
And the best part? I received this stamp set at the Regionals in Calgary on Saturday as part of my registration fee. Woo Hoo! It was a great day of training, stamping, chatting and fun. Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have the best jobs.
