…For Freshly Made Sketches
Hello and welcome to my site. It’s bitterly cold here in NE Georgia and I’m anxiously awaiting Spring. So, it’s natural that I enjoyed making a Spring-looking card with the Botanical Prints Product Medley. This product medley contains beautiful stamps, coordinating dies, gorgeous DSP, die-cut accents, overlays, ribbon and metal embellishments. And, it can be found in the Mini Spring Catalog and my online store. More details can be found on the product medley here.
Also, I decided to play along with Freshly Made Sketches (#423) while making this card.
To begin this card, I made a card base with 11 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches of Basic Black cardstock, scored at 5 1/2 inches. Next, I used SNAIL adhesive to adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 inches layer of Crushed Curry DSP, from the Botanical Prints Product Medley, to one of the beautiful overlays. Then, I wrapped Black Twine ( from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack) around the layers three times and adhered to card front with SNAIL adhesive.
Next, I cut a 3-inch circle of Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Circle dies. Then, I stamped a floral image from the Botanical Prints Product Medley with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the stitched circle. Afterwards, I used Stampin’ Blends to color the image-So Saffron Combo, Daffodil Delight Combo, Old Olive Combo. Moving along, I adhered the colored image to the card front with SNAIL adhesive.
Moving along, I stamped a sentiment from the product medley with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Next, I used the 2 1/2 x 1/2 inches die from the Stitched Rectangles set and cut around the sentiment. Then, I adhered the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Afterwards, I colored two of the Basic Pearl Jewels with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and added to the sentiment layer.
To end, I stamped the same floral image from the Botanical Prints Product Medley with Crushed Curry ink onto a 4 x 5 1/4 inches layer of Whisper White cardstock. Finally, I secured the layer to the inside of the card with SNAIL adhesive.
I hope you enjoy playing with the Botanical Prints Product Medley!
