Avant-Garden, 2017 Sale a Bration, Wetlands, Birthday Card

I've been finding a few "Avant-Garden" cards that I just have to try to duplicate.  This was one of them.  I often forget how you can take an image from the set and make your own "ribbon" band.  The flower center was used to make the strip behind the flower panel. You can see the one I found on Pinterest by clicking here.  

This was a super simple card to make.

First I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4-1/4" x 11" (cut a sheet in half on the short side).  I folded it in half and set it aside.

Next I took a piece of Old Olive cardstock and cut it 4-1/4" x 2-3/4".  I stamped the flower from "Avant-Garden" using Old Olive ink. I taped it in place on the bottom half of the front of the card.

I took a scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the flower center across it using Daffodil Delight ink.  I trimmed the strip to 1/2" x 4-1/4". I added a layer of Daffodil Delight behind it.  I was going to add a 1/4" to the width but I thought it would be too much yellow showing but only cutting it 1/8" larger was not quite enough, so I went somewhere in between.  I taped those two pieces together and taped it to the card. The yellow is on top of the green. I used the white strip as my guideline to get both sides even.

I stamped the flower onto a piece of 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" Whisper White cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink. I also stamped another flower on a piece of scrap card stock. Then I stamped the flower center using black Memento ink. That piece I fussy cut out.  Next I stamped the flower stem and leaves. I also stamped a leaf on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it out.  I stamped the sentiment from the "Wetlands" set using black Memento ink.  

I set the fussy cut pieces in place using Dimensionals. I set the whole panel in place using Dimensionals. And it was done!!  It as a very quick and easy card to make, plus I think it has an elegant look to it!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
