Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards

Hi friends!  I hope you had a good week and that your weekend has gotten off to a great start!

This morning I’m sharing a card featuring stamps and dies from the May release from The Stamp Market.  I just love The Stamp Market’s clean and elegant designs!

I started with the Poppies stamp set and Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. I stamped out the layers of the largest bloom and the smallest bloom using Catherine Pooler inks: Sweet Sixteen, Pixie Dust, and Flirty Fuchsia. Then I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp the centers of the two large blooms before using the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I die cut the sentiment, from the Scalloped Notecard die set, and a branch of Stemmed Leaves from the same white cardstock and then set everything aside to work on the background.

To create a sunny rectangle, I used Post-it Tape to mask of the edges of an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and then used a foam blending tool to ink up the exposed rectangle with Catherine Pooler Tiara ink.  I peeled away the mask and then began assembling the card.

I used some Zots Bling Adhesive Dots to hold down some of the leaves, leaving other leaves loose so that they could stand away from the card a bit.  Then I adhered the large poppy on the left flush to the card.  I adhered the small poppy over it, adding glue only to its stem so that the petals could lift away from the card.  Then I adhered the large poppy on the right with foam tape.

I used a Zig 2-way Glue pen to adhere the sentiment and to finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting me today!
