It might be raining today, but I think Spring may have finally sprung here in Atlanta. We’ve been bouncing back and forth between freezing temperatures and 70 degrees for the past few weeks! But the flowers are starting to bloom (and my nose is starting to run!!), so I’m officially calling it Spring, even though we’re still a few days away. So I pulled out some flowers to encourage Spring to finally show up, this time I used the beautiful Too Kind stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a Just Because card to share.
The design for my card was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch #305.
I started by adhering a panel of Venetian Romance DSP to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with SNAIL. I adhered the layered panel to a Crisp Cantaloupe card base with SNAIL as well.
I adhered a strip of 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front with Sticky Strip. Then I adhered a strip of Victoria 5/8″ Crochet Trim to a strip of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock, using a few dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the lace covered strip to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals under the right side and a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the left.
I stamped the flower image from the Too Kind stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral inks on a Very Vanilla panel (using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement) and I cut them out with a Banners Framelits die. I trimmed off just a little from the right and left sides and the top, then adhered it with SNAIL to a banner that I’d cut from Crisp Cantaloupe Core’dinations Card Stock (from the 2013-15 In Color Core’dinations Card Stock pack) with the same Banner Framelits die. I adhered the layered banner to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Crisp Cantaloupe ink on a Very Vanilla panel and I adhered it with SNAIL to a a strip of Crisp Cantaloupe Core’dinations Card Stock. I adhered the layered strip to the card front with SNAIL, then added a few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim (using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them) and a few Pearl Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the flower images from the Too Kind stamp set again on a Very Vanilla panel for the inside of the card.
