This Color & Contour card in Fresh Freesia ended up being so simple to stamp and put together.
The new catalogue bundle that I used for this card – the Color & Contour stamp set and Scalloped Contour Dies – includes 13 stamps as well as 8 dies and is quickly becoming a favourite that I reach for often.
To make this card, I stamped three flowers and three buds onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper using Black StazOn ink. Then I added colour to the flowers using the Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent refills and the Water Painters. To achieve a watercolor look, leave some white showing when adding colour.
After cutting out the flowers with a die and the smaller buds free hand with scissors, I created the rest of the card front.
I coloured the stamped leaves in Soft Succulent again using the Water Painters and added the splatter image to fill in some of the white space on the card. I kept everything in threes – the flowers, buds, splatters and leaves.
After adding the Basic Back scallop piece to the Whisper White card, I adhered the cut out images with dimensionals.
Color & Contour Bundle $69.25 #158356
After assembling the card, I added a few Matte Black Dots for extra appeal.
And can we talk about the greetings in this stamp set for just a minute? I love the mixed fonts and the slightly larger size of the greetings and how amazing they look.
Now that I have the layout of this card completed, it will be easy to make again and again in other colors. I plan to start with another of my favourite new In Colors, Pale Papaya and continue on from there.
