Greetings! Today I want to share with you a card I made for a dear friend’s birthday this week and also to participate in Stampin’ Royalty’s “Wonderful Words” (SR#323) challenge this week. The challenge was to create a project where the greeting or words are the main focus. It was a no-brainer for me to choose the Sale-a-Bration stamp set – Botanicals for You.
To make the background on this card, I used a technique from Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Design Team member, Connie Collins. I cut out 4 of the Bloomin’ Heart thinlits and pieced them together on my Pool Party cardstock like this:
Then, I simply trimmed the excess off the edges and it left me with a beautiful “lacy” die-cut background! To finish the card off, I added the bold sentiment in the middle and a few die-cut flowers from the Botanical Builder framelits. It’s really difficult to see in the photo, but I also went over the sentiment with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to give it some extra pop and shimmer. It looks so pretty IRL!
Thanks for stopping by today!
