Budding Borders Leaf Sprigs and Flower Faceted Gems

Hi and thank you for visiting my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020

 See below for the specific products included. 

Today I have a fresh looking card with a nice spring feel to it using Terracotta Tile with a splash of Garden Green.  To start with I made the card base from a sheet of A4 Whisper White Thick Cardstock, cutting in half on the long side, then scoring a piece in half.  I then cut a piece of 2019-2021 In Colour Designer Series Paper down to 5½” x 3¾” and adhered this to the card base.  Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5” x 3¼” and placed it onto my stamping platform.  Using both leaf sprigs from the Budding Borders stamp set, I arranged them on a corner of the cardstock.  I stamped them in Garden Green ink, rotating each time to complete the stamping in all four corners, then also adhered this to the card base.   Using an off-cut from the DSP, I trimmed a piece to measure 3” x ¾” and cut the short edges into a banner.  Onto the sentiment, from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using the smallest oval from the Stitched Shape Dies.  For the backing, I used a piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock and cut it out using the second smallest oval from the same set of Dies.  I adhered them together, including the banner and attached this to the card.  To finish off, I used four Flower Faceted Gems in Terracotta Tile, attaching on in each corner joining the two leaf sprigs.
