I need to confess something to you. This card started off as the card I posted yesterday. I don’t know how I got off on such a totally different direction. And while I am confessing my stamping secrets to all of you, you might as well know – I cannot use this stamp set, Daydream Medallions without singing Daydream Believers by The Monkees at the top of my lungs. I’m sure my family is glad they were out of the house when I was stamping up a storm this week.
Although there are lots of layers on this card, they are easy to cutout with the Floral Frames Framelits which were made to coordinate with the Daydream Medallions stamp set. And they do so beautifully! I recommend stamping first and then cutting out with the framelit so it can be centered correctly. Remember you can use a post-it note to hold the framelit in place so it doesn’t move while being cut out – see this post.
Whether your order the stamp set in clear or wood, remember to hold onto the rubber centers of the images as you mount them since they make great stamps on their own.
To make this card, I stamped the two Daydream Medallions images I wanted to use and then cut them out with the matching Floral Frame framelit. I then created additional frames in Basic Black for layering. To the piece of Whisper White card stock that is layered on the Basic Black card, I added a Delicate Designs embossed image using the folder for the Big Shot.
A length of Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon was adhered to the card before adding the floral layers using dimensionals. To finish the card, I added a bow in the same taffeta ribbon and a "thanks" greeting stamped in Basic Black and punched with the Small Oval.
So, what do you think of this black and white card? Please leave a comment and let me know. And if you want to confess any stamping secrets of your own, I’m listening.
Instead of adding ribbon to the center of the Basic Black Button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons pack, I adhere a pearl from the Large Pearl Basic Jewels to the top to make it appear as more of the center of a flower.
