Feel Good Cards, Just Because Cards

You Are Simply Wonderful


Hi there, happy mid-week!

Today I’m again playing with some pretty products from Picket Fence Studios.  I really like this Succulent Floral stamp, it would be great for a modern holiday card, or a holiday card for someone who lives in warmer climates.  Today I’ve paired it with a lovely sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set.

I started by stamping the Succulent Floral stamp twice in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  Then I colored with YG13, YG17, and G19 for the greens, RV14 and RV19 for the reds, and Y02 for the small areas around the red centers of the florals.  I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut them out and then set them aside.  I also stamped, colored, and fussy cut just the red center of a floral to use as a small embellishment.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah.  I drew in a frame with a ruler and a 0.3 Copic Multiliner black pen.  Then I backed the succulents in foam tape and adhered them to the card front, trimming off the edges.  I used more foam tape to adhere one of the trimmed pieces to the top of the card and then used a bit of glue to adhere the small embellishment within the words of the sentiment. To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks very much for visiting!
