Working with the Calming Camellia Stamp Set and Special Moments

Today I used the beautiful Calming Camellia stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Let’s get started!

Card Directions:

I started with a Crumb Cake card base cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. Using Crumb Cake ink I stamped the largest Calming Camellia flower four times around the perimeter of the front of the card base. With a sponge dauber, I inked some Pale Papaya ink in the center of the flowers. I then cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to 2-1/2″ x 4″ and stamped the same large flower image in Pale Papaya. This piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was mounted onto a piece of Crumb Cake cut to 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″.

The sentiment on the front of the card came from the Special Moments stamp set. The sentiment was stamped on a 1″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock then the ends were punched using the Banners Pick A Punch. The Very Vanilla panel and the sentiment were popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A double bow was tied with Linen Thread and the bow was adhered to the Sentiment using a mini glue dot.

A Very Vanilla piece of cardstock was cut for the inside of the card to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped with a sentiment from the Calming Camellia stamp set and the large flower image was stamped in Pale Papaya in the lower right corner. To finish off the card I did a second-generation stamp in Pale Papaya of the large flower in the lower right corner of the front of the envelope and the center of the envelope flap.

The Calming Camellia stamp set has an old-world charm about it and lends itself to tone on tone stamping that is just beautiful!
