This picture does not show how bright and cheery this card really is. I used Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo as the main colors to make it bright and spring like! After all the nasty weather we have been having I figured it was time to get some sunshine into our day!!!!
For April's Stamp Camp I used only stamp sets that are in the Annual Catalog. I haven't really been using them as I was concentrating on Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions catalog. I thought they were a little lonely just sitting on the shelf, I needed to show them a little love. LOL
When I was trying to decide what stamp set to use, this one just kind of jumped out at me. I the flower stamp sets and have been into the watercolor design lately. I also like watercolor, because if you make a mistake it is less noticeable. The stamp sets I used were Garden in Bloom and Wetlands.
Here are the measurements for you to make the card if you wish:
Daffodil Delight Card Stock #119683
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Melon Mambo Card Stock #115320
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- scrap for punching out scallop oval
Whisper White Card Stock #100730
- Cut at 4" x 5 1/4" - for the inside of the card
- 4 1/2" x just under 2" - for the tag
- scrap for the saying
This card is a pretty easy card to make. I gave the melon mambo a little bit of texture by embossing it with the modern mosaic embossing folder. It needed a little something to finish off the card. You could use any embossing folder you have.
I popped up the tag with stampin' dimensionals. I made sure I put one under the hole on the top to help hold the ribbon in place. I also used a glue dot to help secure the ribbon. I used the flower to stamp on the inside of my card and on my envelope. Here is a picture of it.
I hope this card brings a little bit of sunshine into your day today. Thank you for stopping by!
