When I was looking through the new occasions catalog I was drawn to the Life is Grand stamp set. There are times that I want a big sentiment so I can make that the focus of my card, and this stamp set is exactly that. Big sentiments. My favorite designer series paper in the whole occasions catalog is the Floral Romance pack. There are two double sided designs and two single sided designs that are on vellum. I have to say the vellum design I used on this card is my favorite. It is so beautiful!
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
- cut at 2 3/4" x 3 1/4"
- cut at 1 1/4" x 4 1/4"
- cut at 2 1/2" x 3"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
When I went to attach the vellum to the Fresh Fig piece of cardstock, I really didn't like how the design on the vellum looked muted. How could I make the design come through, so you can see how pretty this paper is? I saw the vellum laying on my white craft table and realized that I needed to put a piece of white paper behind it. I cut it the same size as the vellum so you can't see it. I then attached it to the Fresh Fig piece of cardstock.
The sentiment is popped with Stampin Dimensionals and then to finish off the card I put one of the flowers from the Frosted Flower Embellishments.
This card is a simple card that uses a stamp, ink and paper. It doesn't get any easier than that!
