I made a birthday card using the Vibrant Vases stamp set and the Varied Vases Bundle. The Vibrant Vases set is found in the SU! 2019 Occasions Catalog. And, the Varied Vases Bundle is found in the SU! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. This bundle contains the Varied Vases stamp set and coordinating Vases Builder Punch.
I participated in two challenges while making this card. The first challenge was a sketch by Fab Friday. (#FabFri159)
The second challenge is by TGIF and involves coloring with Stampin’ Blends. (TGIFC#204)
I started making the card base by cutting a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and scoring it at 4 1/2 inches.
Second, I embossed a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Varied Vases stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the embossed layer. Then, I adhered the layer to the card base with SNAIL adhesive.
Third, I cut a strip of Silver Foil with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhered it above the sentiment with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
Fourth, I stamped the vases and flowers from the Vibrant Vases stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then, I cut out some of the flowers with Paper Snips. Next, I punched the tulips out with the Vases Builder Punch. I stamped the leaves with Old Olive ink.
Fifth, I colored the vases, flowers and leaves with the Stampin’ Blends Combos-Smoky Slate, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. Next, I adhered the cut flowers to the vases with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then, I added Clear Rhinestones to the flowers.
Sixth, I matted the focal piece to a layer of Daffodil Delight cardstock and adhered it to the card with SNAIL adhesive. Next, I stamped another sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Then, I adhered this layer to the inside of the card with SNAIL adhesive. Finally, I added additional vases to the inside of the card and adhered them with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
