Hello and welcome! I'm so excited because today I am sharing my first two cards as a Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Member! I'm sharing these over on the Pinkfresh Studio Blog as well! I've created two different cards using the same Floral Elements stamp set to create these notes of encouragement!
The inspiration for both of these cards came from the BEAUTIFUL Just a little lovely: 6 by 6 paper pad. I just loved the colors; cheerful yet soothing all at the same time! That is just what I am looking for when creating uplifting cards!
I stamped the images in black ink and then used the coordinating Floral Elements die set to die cut them. I set them aside while I got to work on the other elements of the cards.
I used the Fancy Label Frames for both sentiments. This "bloom" sentiment is from the lovely Blooming Bouquet stamp set and is stamped in black. I also added some grey ink splatter to continue with the flecks from the pattern paper.
The black label has a sentiment from the Oval Foliage stamp set heat embossed in white. I was a little hesitant to add black to a sympathy card, but it really adds the contrast that this card needed.
Each card has a frame that is die cut using the Pretty Frames die set. I added that over the pattern paper using foam squares. Once that was done, I added the floral elements and sentiments. Of course, the finishing touch is a sprinkling of the beautiful Essentials Jewel Mix ! These add such pretty and sparkly detail to any design! I had so much fun working on these two cards and I hope they bring some comfort and cheer to the recipients! Thanks for fluttering by!
