For this Simple Saturday card, I wanted to share another sample made using the Four Frames stamp set and Paisley Petals designer series paper.
I think what I like most about this stamp set is the many different looks you can create. Every card I have shown this week has been unique yet they have all been created with the same basic products: the Four Frames stamp set, Paisley Petals designer series paper, the Say it Simply stamp set and the Decorative Label punch.
To make this card, I stamped the polka dot frame onto Marina Mist cardstock with Marina Mist ink. I punched an Old Olive oval for the center and then added a greeting of Marina Mist ink on River Rock cardstock. I cut the ends of the greeting piece into flag ends. Finally, I added a Marina Mist button tied with linen thread to this piece.
The card was created with layers of Marina Mist, River Rock and Old Olice cardstocks with Paisley Petals paper. This pattern s a very subtle design in River Rock. Assemble the card by adding the frame and you’re done.
TIP: To ink up the Four Frames stamps, place the stamps image side up on your table and apply the ink pad to the stamp. This helps keep the middle of the stamps free of ink.
