Today we are having another look at our fantastic September Stamp of the Month with this “Family” Card. I created this 5″ x 7″ card with a White Daisy cardstock base, and a Flaxen cardstock front.
I stamped the large tree image twice…. first, I stamped it in Sorbet ink, right onto the cardstock that I would use for the front of the card. Next, I stamped the tree with Flaxen ink onto a large piece of cardstock and fussy cut around the tree and a few branches. I then glued the Flaxen tree over the pre-stamped Sorbet tree.
The strip of patterned paper is from the Chalk It Up Paper Packet, and the piece of cardstock with the sentiment is Lagoon. I stamped the sentiment in Lagoon ink, masking off the other words in the stamp, which actually reads, “Family is Forever.”
I added 2 adorable puffy stickers from the Chalk It Up Assortment in between the tree branches. Wanting the clear sparkles to have some color, I colored over them with my ShinHan Turquoise colored marker. They all dried very quickly and I was able to add the sparkles to my tree and sentiment!
I will be linking this card to Color My Heart Color Dare, Challenge #108, found here. This week’s colors are: Flaxen, Lagoon, and Sorbet.
