Simple Saturday – Artistic Etchings

Stampin Up Artistic Etchings


It’s Simple Saturday!

I find some of my simplest cards are those that are monochromatic. This one uses only Daffodil Delight with Whisper White.

So far, of all the new colours, Daffodil Delight is the one I have used most often. It works well with almost every other colour. A really pretty yellow it is not too soft or too loud – it’s "just right".

To make this card, I stamped "A Note of Thanks" in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I then layered this piece onto a Daffodil Delight card. Next, I layered a piece of Greenhouse Gala designer series paper also in Daffodil Delight onto Daffodil Delight cardstock. This piece was cut down 1/2" on each side compared to the Whisper White cardstock to create a larger border of white.

I wrapped a length of Daffodil Delight 5/8" grosgrain ribbon around the Greenhouse Gala piece before adhering it to the card. Finally, I stamped the circle image from the Artistic Etchings stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle. After punching a 2-3/8" scallop circle in Daffodil Delight, I layered it under the first circle and attached it to the card with stampin’ dimensionals. So easy!

Have a great weekend!

    This is a wonderful card. I need a really simple card for my Stampin’ Brunch Bunch which meets on the 31st – right after CONVENTION! 🙂 Thanks for blessing my day. 🙂
