It was such a quick and simple card to make but the detailed background makes it look like way more work was involved!
Stampin’ Up! sell delicately details laser-cut sheets which are Vanilla on one side and White on the other, how clever is that?
There are eight 12×12″ sheets in the pack, some of the sheets are a full laser cut piece in 12×12″ which would be perfect for scrapbooking or cutting elements from it. The other piece has borders, lace details and 6 backgrounds or frames for a card front.
I used one of the backgrounds for my card. I simply cut around the border and created a card to fit the background. Sticking it in place is a little tricky. I added glue to the border and then a little dot of tombow to the wider elements, such as the block flowers.
I stamped the gorgeous greeting from the Needlepoint Nook stamp set (in Early Espresso Ink) and punched it out with the everyday label punch.
The ribbon which is threaded through a hole is one of the FREE items during sale-a-bration. You can choose 23m of ribbon which comes in 5 colours of 4.6m each as your free item if you spend £45 on any goods from the annual or seasonal catalogue till the end of March.
Can you see a common theme appearing? Butterflies maybe? I cannot stop using the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Butterfly Gala bundle. I simply punched out a butterfly shape and coloured with my Stampin’ Blends and added it to the greeting on my card.
Why not give it a try and simple send a card Just Because and brighten someone’s day?
