I always need some All Occasion cards – thank you, thinking of you, sending prayers and more. And this card works for all of those sentiments.
To make this card, I stamped the image from with All My Heart on Very Vanilla cardstock with the Pretty in Pink classic ink. Then, I stamped the same image a second time with the VersaMark pad using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the two impressions. While the ink is still wet, I covered the image with Iridescent Ice embossing powder and used the heat tool to melt the powder.
I punched the image out with the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch and punched another two pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock. The edges of the flowers were curled up using my fingers. After layering these punches, I used my piercing tool to make a hole and inserted the Very Vanilla jumbo brad.
Using stampin’ dimensionals, I adhered the punched flower to the front of the card where I had already glued a piece of Sending Love DSP and some other cardstock layers. I embellished this piece with a knot of Pretty in Pink satin ribbon. To finish, I inserted three Very Vanilla brads.
Now, since I have a few of these cards on hand, I can stamp whatever greeting I need inside and be ready to send the card .
