You guessed it, I did not put this stamp set away. And you know what that means (other than I'm a messy stamper!), it means I am going to use it again. After all, it was just sitting there. But like I said the other day, this set is really starting to grow on me. I don't like to fussy cut but for this card I'm willing to make an exception!
I found this card on Pinterest. You can see it here. I did change it a little. I changed the colors because I didn't know what color was used in the original card, so I went with the color I thought I would like.
The base of my card is folded half sheet of Smoky Slate. On top of that is a piece of Pear Pizzazz cut 3-1/4" x 4-1/2". On top of that is a piece of Whisper White cut 3" x 4-1/4". A piece of Washi tape from the "Pop of Pink" rolls was added to the right side. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White 2-3/8" x 4-1/4". I stamped the flower on it using Rose Red, it's a color I don't use very often and I thought I should take it off the rack and dust it off!! I stamped the stem and leaf using Pear Pizzazz ink. The words were stamped using black Memento ink. I did stamp a second flower. I added the center to the flower using black Memento ink. Then I fussy cut it out. Actually, I stamped all of the flowers at the same time so when it was time to cut out the flower I knew it would be dry. Before attaching the stamped flower piece in place I tied some black thread around it. I didn't have any black Baker's Twine and I didn't feel like coloring any with my Sharpe marker, so I took some embroidery floss and tied it around the piece. Then I taped it in place on top of the piece that has the Washi tape on it.
I added Dimensionals to the stamped panel piece and set it on top of the Pear Pizzazz piece. Then that was taped on top of the Smoky Slate card base.
It's a pretty simple card to make, just a lot of pieces to deal with. I do like how it turned out. Oh, and the original card does not have the flower cut out. I just thought this flower looked SO much better when it was layered like that.
Thank you ever so much for stopping by today,
