I hope all of the moms out there enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day! I had a nice day with my family and hubby cooked ribs on the grill…Yum!
I used the Everlasting Beauty Stamp Set to create this pretty and easy card for today! Watercolor Pencils were used to color in the image, and I did a little masking and ink blending to create a frame around the flower.
A mask was created using the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set. The mask was adhered to a white panel and I stamped the flower image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The mask was temporarily removed, and I used Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape watercolor pencils to color in the image…no water was used!
The mask was reapplied to the stamped and colored panel, and I used a blending brush to lightly blend Granny Apple Green ink around the flower to create a sort of frame. The mask was removed and saved for a future project. The colored panel was adhered to a mat in Granny Apple Green then adhered to the front of a Gorgeous Grape card base.
A sentiment from the Everlasting Beauty Stamp Set was stamped onto a sentiment label in Tuxedo Black Memento ink then the label was matted to a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A double Linen Thread bow was added to the top of the sentiment label.
An additional sentiment was stamped on the inside panel as well as a flower on the lower left of the panel. The same watercolor pencils were used to color in the image. The panel was adhered to a Granny Apple Green mat then adhered to the inside of the card.
Lastly, I stamped a flower image onto the envelope front and envelope flap and used the same colors of watercolor pencils to color in the images. Brushed Brass Butterflies were added to the card front to finish off the card.
I hope you give this easy card a try! You can download, save and print a pdf tutorial for this card by clicking on the image below.
