There usually isn’t so much bling on my Simple Saturday cards but this card came together so quickly I thought it qualified.
Elements of Style is a brand new set that will be in the Summer Mini effective May 1st. If you would like to receive a copy of Summer Mini catalogue in the mail, please click here. Canadians only, please.
To make this card, I stamped the scroll image in Basic Black ink and added the greeting in Bashful Blue. This set also has a bird, another greeting and a gorgeous grouping of flowers. I willl post another card soon using the other stamps but trust me, you will want this set!
After stamping, I layered the Whisper white cardstock onto Bashful Blue cardstock and then Basic Black. Then, I added the center from the largest sized Ice Circle brad onto the stamped image with a mini glue dot. To remove the rhinestone from the brad, open up the prongs and release the small tab. The rhinestone will slip right out.
The base of the card is Basic Black with a layer of Whisper White cardstock. A piece of 3" x 5" striped Bashful Blue designer series paper was added on top and a length of Basic Black satin ribbon was adhered along the edge of the dsp. Three medium sized Ice Circle rhinestones were placed in the bottom right corner with mini glue dots. Finally, I used stampin’ dimensionals to apply the stamped image piece to the card. Hope you like it!
