Here’s a simply elegant card to wish someone a lovely day! It is made with the Lovely Wishes stamp set, which is found almost all the way at the back of the Occasions Catalog on page 50. I love the simple, graceful lines of this set, as well as the sweet sentiments! I find the whole set to be elegant and lovely!
The set contains multiple floral line images, with additional stamps that can be used to fill in the lines with color. Because it is a photopolymer set, and the stamps are totally clear, lining up the stamps is very easy! You can also just color in the images with the coloring product of your choice, or even just leave them unfilled! For this card, I chose to keep it super simple, just adding a bit of color with the coordinating filler stamps. I used Very Vanilla as the base, along with Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Real Red.
Once I cut my layers, I stamped the the two large floral images first in Old Olive. I then inked up the filler stamp in Old Olive as well, but stamped it off once before adding it to the leaves, to give it a bit of contrast by making the leaves a lighter shade. I then filled in the flowers with the Real Red, using coordinating stamps from the set as well. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso. Before adhering the top layers to the card, I stamped a different stamp from the set in Old Olive in the corners of the card base, just to add a little extra detail.
The top layers are adhered to the base with Dimensionals to add a little more height and texture to the card. After making this card, I sat for about twenty minutes trying to figure out a way to embellish it a bit. I even put it away and came back to it the next day, trying to figure out if I should add anything else! I tried a few different things, but I just didn’t like anything I tried, so I decided to leave it as is. I really like the simplicity of it!
Thanks for stopping by today! Wishing You a Lovely Day! 🙂
