Hope you're feeling special today

Happy weekend crafters.  Look what I stamped this morning.  Lots of fussy cutting but it didn't take long :)

This is a take on a card we made in class last week, which I'll share with you later as I still have three more classes where we will be making the original card.

First I stamped the striped background in Hello Honey using the new Brushstrokes stamp. Then for the flowers and leaves I used the beautiful, photopolymer Garden in Bloom stamp set. A very pretty, three-step, water colour look.

The flowers (and greeting) were stamped in Soft Suede, then filled in with the solid and accent stamps in Hello Honey and Blushing Bride.  I 'stamped off' the solid stamp once first to get the lighter colour, then stamped the accent in the same ink without stamping off, hence the two-tone petals. The leaves were stamped the same way using Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzaz.

Hope your're feeling special today

As you can see it's one of my tent style folds, sitting on a custom made envelope as the card measures 4 1/2" x 5". I used the Decorative Label punch for the greeting and popped it on Hello Honey card which I cut using a die from the Chalk Talk set. 

I finished off with a bow in Very Vanilla.  Sadly the seam binding ribbon is no longer available in the vanilla but you can get other SU ribbon in that colour, like very lovely 5/8" satin ribbon.
