Blooming With Kindness

While surfing the net and of course Pinterest I ran across this fun card.  I am so loving the simplicity of it and yet it has an elegant look to it.  I can see doing these as a set of cards for a gift for a friend and using different colors too!  I may give that a try in a few days.  I have a list of things I want to make first.  I'd LOVE for that list to stop growing for a while!!! LOL

Ok, so onto this fun card.  I found it at Scrapin' and Stamping.  

To make this card I used Primrose Petals cardstock and ink pad.  I stamped the large Blooming with Kindness image on the bottom part of the folded cardstock.  I used ink instead of VersaMark.  VersaMark would probably show up a little bit lighter.  I didn't even think about using it because I had the ink there and I didn't want to wash off my rubber stamp to use ink on it later.  Talk about lazy!!! LOL 

My Whisper White focal panel is cut 3" x 4-3/8" and the Basic Black piece behind it is cut 3-1/8" x 4-1/2".  I stamped the flower on the white piece and then I just used the stamp again (without reinking it) on the right side and then I stamped on the cardstock in the bottom center and off to the right a little where there was a white gap that I didn't like seeing.  All that from one inking!

The words are done in black StazOn using the Simply Sketched set.  And that was it.  Talk about quick, simple and elegant all in one card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
